Let’s demonstrate the “Easy RJ45” connector and crimp tool

So we received a new shipment of these pass through easy RJ45 connectors. I’ve heard of these for a while now and I said to myself, let’s check them out. The pass through RJ45 connector  (Part Number EC-RJ45) makes terminating your network category cables easy. All you have to do is pass your wires through the easy RJ45 connector and the guides inside the connector will hold all the copper conductors in place. Then you use the EC-RJ45 crimp tool to crimp. With it’s built in blade this tool crimps and cuts all of the excess copper conductors off the end of the Easy RJ45 connector at the same time.

Let’s check out a demo from our YouTube channel.

The gold contacts don’t get enough credit. They’re 3 pronged and because of that you can crimp connectors on solid or stranded copper conductors. The crimp tool also works with standard RJ11 and RJ45 connectors.

After posting this video on our Facebook Page a fan wanted to get a look at the shielded Cat6 connector. So we decided to do another video for the shielded Cat6 connector.

Shielded Cat6 Easy RJ45 Connector

After using this tool and these connectors. The Eclipse Tools brand has come through with a quality connector and crimp tool. The shielded part of the connector also feels like it’s quality made. A customer on the YouTube channel also likes the quality of the shield and connector overall. I’ve also gained confidence with this brand knowing that it cut the end of the copper conductors clean and flush off the connector. I’ve heard that some low end crimp tools don’t do a good job of that. The connector and crimp tool is in stock and ready to ship today.

How and why to keep Fiber Optic Connectors clean

When dealing with fiber optic networks, it is important to know that cleaning is a key factor to keep dirt and contamination from blocking the critical light path on a fiber. Dirt and contaminates contribute to 50-80% of all fiber issues, causing networks to start dropping packets or go down all together. Keeping your connections clean keeps your network running as well as:

  • Ensure connector integrity – crucial for reliable network performance
