Network cable crimpers can vary wildy in price. We found that the top end (within reason) checks in around $50 while the norm seems to be about $25. The KS-316 Crimper can be used on RJ-11 (1, 2, and 3 pair) and RJ-45 (4 pair) modular plugs.
It comes with all standard crimper features: a cutting blade, stripping slots, and crimping ports. So, once the cable is in hand, you won’t have to put the tool down to finish the patch cable. All in all, it would make a good addition to a home networking toolkit for the $5 pricetag.
