Left-Handed RJ-45 crimper

Left-Handed RJ-45 crimper


I'm looking for a left handed RJ-45 crimper. does anybody know where I can get something like that. It is really difficult to crimp with a normal crimper. I end up having to hold it upside down and it really doesn't work well.


RE: Left-Handed RJ-45 crimper

The AMP brand crimper is a high quality crimper that has interchangable dies, and the modular plug inserts from the front of the unit not the side, so either hand should work fine.  I've used it for years with no trouble, it is a ratcheting type tool and very sturdy.

Good Luck!

It is only my opinion, based on my experience and education...I am always willing to learn, educate me!

Could you be a little more specific, please. where can I get it? is there a manufacturer's website I could look at?\

Thank you very much
