From fiber optic connectors to BNC connectors, the Pros Kit line of crimping die sets offers you a lifetime limited replacement warranty, and the quality you would expect without having to pay the high price that comes with these types of electronics tools. Do they hold up like other Electronics Tools? You bet, you can ask any of my field or bench technicians who put their tools through abuse and punishment every day.
I don't know about you, but after 25 years of cable installations, it certainly seemed as if my tool bag was filled with more styles of crimping tools than any other type of electronics tool. There are just so many different types of crimp connectors to deal with, that one crimper just didn't fit all of my installation needs.
The one important thing to remember, as is true with most things in life, is that you will get what you pay for. When searching for the best pair of wire crimpers, every project is different, however typically higher cost means higher quality. Lastly, when a pair of crimpers will be needed for serveral years of use, it is usually a good idea to check if it can crimp and cut different varieties of wires. The most common types of multi-crimp tools are used to support a variety of RJ-style connectors and different types of data cables. Lastly, when a pair of crimpers will be needed for the long haul over several years of use, it is also a good idea to see if it can cut and crimper different types of wires.
Modular plugs, "F" connectors, "N" connectors, RG58, RG59, RG6, Insulated Terminals, Uninsulated Terminals are just a few of the connector types I run into almost every day in my electronics shop, and every time I thought I had it covered, another new style of connector came along forcing me to purchase another crimping tool.
Modular crimper and cutters are great for projects that involve using multiple sizes of connections. If you wanted the flexibility to crimp multiple types of connections like telephone and data, these are the perfect for the job!
