Alright for my requirements,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: RJ45 CRIMPER TOOLS (Electronics)
Tool arrived promptly. I dunno what the yellow thing is in the illustration, but I did not get one!
It is designed to crimp CAT5/6 cable into an RJ45 plug. (Not for a socket, which calls for a punch down tool - just in case you are a beginner like me)
The tool arrived on a cardboard mount indicating that it was a Oubao Tool, made in Shenzhen China. The "Directions ofuse" consisted of "While using press-pliers, just insert the crystal top in position and press it". That all there was in the way of instructions, but I was also pleased to read that the tool was made of "magnanic steel" and that it was "with perfect shape".
The handle was embossed with the word "Germany". I suppose that was on the handle of the original tool that they copied.
Anyway it works and seemed to make a good connection in the sockets. I don't think one could do the job without something like this.
Trouble is there is nothing to store it in when you put it away. Be careful not to put it in a tool box or belt, or you might accidentally cut your finger off. There is a razor sharp blade exposed inside the handle. You have been warned!
