The Telemaster™ has been a best-selling tool for crimping Cat5e and Cat 6 modular plugs for over 15 years. Precision ground crimp teeth and a steel-walled body keep the connector stable and all of the moving parts aligned throughout the crimp process for a perfect crimp every time. Many general purpose tools inconsistently crimp each of the eight contacts of a modular plug, and the tool cavity can bend under crimping stresses. This results in weak conductor to pin contact points from contacts that were not fully seated. Uneven/unseated contacts can also cause damage to the mating connector port. The Telemaster is a weight relieved, non-ratcheting version of the 30-696 Ratchet Telemaster™. It provides consistent quality terminations in a smaller and lighter form factor. For a time-proven, reliable and best in class modular plug crimping tool, look no further than the Telemaster™ from IDEAL.
