Be sure to equip yourself with the right tools for a successful install. This large diameter RJ45 Crimp tool is recommended for our Large OD Shielded RJ45 Plugs. These plugs are compatible with Cat8, Cat7a, Cat6a shielded cable.
Not all crimping tools were made equal. Your Cat8 RJ45 plug may fit into a standard crimp tool, however it does not mean the crimp will offer the right amount of pressure for the right connection. This specific crimp tool is adjusted to the perfect pressure and angle for our large OD RJ45 to make the proper connections with the prongs to each wire. This is very crucial for high end cabling such as Cat7a and Cat8, the slightest loose of contact can cause performance failure.
