Ideal Industries RJ45 FT-45 Feed-Thru Crimp Tool is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Tool This is a quality tool, very sturdy and well made. It makes fitting RJ-45 connectors on to Cat 5 a doddle! I love it and can highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feed through crimp tool Nice tool, easy to use and no messing with wires crossing over as pushing through plug. Crimps well. Overall easier to use than the older style non feed through plugs and crimping tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality fast terminatikn First time using feed through rj45 plugs. Fast and easy to confirm correct wiring. I would estimate st least twice as fast as non feed through rj45 plugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent with ideal plugs This crimp tool is brilliant with the Ideal feed through plugs - no need to mess around with spacer bars typically required for CAT6 cables, being able to push the cable all the way through means the cables stay twisted right up to the terminals, with the jacket of the cable going all the way through. Nice positive action, fits in my small hands nicely. Only caution is that I did put some standard non-feedthrough crimps in to test (it says it can do them) and while they did work, the blade which trims the cable ends on a feedthrough cable shaved a fraction of a mm of the connector and left a little plastic spur on the connector. So I wouldn't buy this for doing standard RJ45 terminals (there are cheaper options available for that anyway).
