Pretty Good Krone Type Tool
17 Apr 2015
By
, Falkirk
" My previous Krone tool had worn out, looked at cheaper types elsewhere but decided to buy this one expecting it will last at least a year.
The quality of the Philex appears to be pretty good, used it finish two telecoms jobs pretty quickly.
May consider buying a spare ... "

Just the job!
15 Sep 2014

" Makes easy work of network connections. I used this for Cat6 network face plates. The tool made for a fast and neat job. The tool cuts the surplas wire so the resulting connection is very clean. I just made sure I doubled checked the small nut and bolt at the end periodically as some reviewers mentioned this can come loose and fall out after it has been used a few times. "

" Just bought one to replace an identical item "loaned" to a friend a while ago. Trouble free and reliable item, which is why I am buying another.
Note that the IDENTICAL item is on the shelves of "The Big Orange" for "only" £17.98. Well done Screwfix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IDC Tool
14 Nov 2013
By
, Swanley, Kent
" Although I have only used this on a couple of small jobs, I did find it perfectly adequate, resasonably built and good value. Terminations were all good first time (although I always give them a couple of extra 'clicks' just to be sure), and wire was trimmed neatly. Whilst I cannot vouch for its longevity, build quailty appears to be similar to the more expensive 'BT' version. "

Good IDC tool
14 Mar 2013
By
, Bristol
" I bought this to do a small DIY install at home. It worked wonderfully.
The auto-trim feature is particularly useful; I've only used a non-auto-trim tool before, and this was a lot easier.
The tool also includes a hook for removing wires from the connector and something which I assume is meant to be a screwdriver. The screwdriver is rather flimsy though, and I doubt that it's capable of tightening screws much more than finger-tight.
The IDC insertion end looks rather better constructed, but I've only used it for 4 cat5e sockets (so far) so I can't comment on the reliability. "
