S45-C250 – Universal RJ45 Crimp Tool for Standard Shielded w/External Ground, No Secondary Strain Relief – 1ea/Blister Card

Simply45 Crimp Tools are designed to streamline the process of terminating RJ45 connectors while maintaining the quality and reliability of the terminations. The S45-C250 crimps contact pins only and has no latch driver. This tool is designed to crimp standard series (solid body) shielded connectors with external ground tabs. Our dual ratcheting handles delivers more force for a better pin set onto the wire conductors and provides a smoother, faster, and easier crimping process. The reinforced steel wrapped head ensures tool stability during the crimping cycle. S45-C250 Crimp Tool is a good choice for network installers, technicians, and DIY enthusiasts who want a tool that simplifies the termination process without compromising on the quality of their network connections.

Product Details

Simply45® is the industry-leading brand for RJ45 modular plug innovation and performance solutions. Our Universal Crimp Tool for Shielded External Ground Standard WE/SS (8P8C) RJ45 Modular Plugs – S45-C250. This is the recommended crimp tool for all Shielded with External Ground Standard RJ45 Modular Plugs. The S45-C250 is a breakthrough in professional RJ45 termination. The S45-250 is excellent for crimping Standard shielded external ground RJ45 modular plugs for 10G Shielded LAN cables.

Note: Unshielded and Internal Ground Shielded RJ45 modular plugs require a different crimp tool.  For Pass-Through Unshielded and Pass-Through Internal Ground RJ45 modular plugs, please use our part S45-C100 crimp tool. For Standard WE/SS 8P8C Unshielded and Internal Ground Shielded RJ45 modular plugs, please use our S45-C200 RJ45 Crimp Tool.

Simply45® Universal Standard WE/SS (8P8C) RJ45 Crimp Tool – S45-C250 Features:

Universal Crimp Tool for All Standard WE/SS 8P8C Shielded with External Ground RJ45 Modular Plugs. We designed our Simply45® S45-C250 Crimp Tool to work not only with Simply45® brand Standard WE/SS Type Shielded with External Ground RJ45 modular plugs but also with all industry-compliant Standard WE/SS type shielded with external ground RJ45 modular plugs. So, no matter what brand of compliant WE/SS type shielded with external ground RJ45 modular plugs you use, the Simply45® S45-C250 Crimp Tool is the right tool for you. Excellent for crimping shielded external ground RJ45 modular plugs for 10G Shielded LAN cables.  Includes a crimping socket for the External Ground Arm.

Ratcheted for Full Compression Cycle. A ratcheted crimp tool requires the installer to complete the full crimping cycle. While some RJ45 brands are eliminating this feature with their crimp tools, Simply45® knows that a ratcheted crimp tool is critical to ensuring that the RJ45 pins are properly seated onto the wire conductors.  A ratcheted crimp tool prevents incomplete plug termination.

Synchronized Handles = More Force with Less Hand Effort. The Simply45® Standard RJ45 Crimp Tool for Shielded External Ground RJ45 – S45-C250 uses synchronized handles that compress together during the crimping cycle. This synchronization delivers consistent and even force directly to the plug socket.  The result is a smoother, faster, and easier crimping process. The Simply45® S45-C250 Crimp Tool provides more leverage than any other RJ45 crimp tool. The tool handles open up to 4.25” (108mm).  This leverage delivers more force with less hand effort during the crimping cycle. Other RJ45 crimp tools may work ok when you are crimping Cat5e, but when you start crimping Cat6 or Cat6a LAN cables, it usually takes both hands to squeeze strongly to complete the crimp cycle. This is because most other RJ45 crimp tools use only ONE handle to generate the crimping force. The Simply45® S45-C250 Crimp Tool design utilizes BOTH handles working in tandem to deliver the crimping force with much less effort. Crimping Cat6 cables with one hand is easy to do. This lowers hand fatigue especially when you have many terminations to complete in a day.

Steel Reinforced for Greater Stability. We wrapped the Simply45® S45-C250 Crimp Tool with reinforced steel to ensure tool stability during the crimping cycle.  When we analyzed other RJ45 crimp tools on the market we found that tools using various inserts introduced a lot of instability during the crimping cycle. Over time this instability causes incomplete RJ45 pin setting onto the wire conductors. Crimp tool stability results in a smoother crimping cycle, better pin sets, and greater durability over time. You can compare this to too many chefs in the kitchen. They can tell immediately if they have a good carving knife. They can truly feel the difference in the weight, the feel, the balance, the stability… compared to a cheaply made knife from China. That carving knife works smoothly with less effort. In our industry, the professional installer is the chef and RJ45 terminations are done in his kitchen. That is why professional installers should only use the best professional tools for the best professional results.

Multi-Function. The Simply45® S45-C250 Crimp Tool includes a crimping socket for the external ground arm.  No need for a separate tool. We also recommend our Adjustable LAN Cable Stripper (parts: S45-S01BL & S45-S01YL) that professionally strips ALL shielded and unshielded LAN cables from Cat7a to Cat5e.

Wire Alignment Pattern Where You Need ItSimply45® laser engraves the wire alignment patterns Type A/B right under the crimping socket. We also list the pattern to match how the RJ45 modular plug is inserted into the tool. This makes it easy to provide one last check to be sure the wires are properly aligned inside the plug before crimping.   This was a feature recommended by professional installers as a final check before crimping the RJ45 modular plug. Eliminates the error of putting the wire alignment upside down into the plug.

Ergonomic Grip. Simply45® designed the S45-C250 with an ergonomic grip that reduces hand fatigue and slippage.

Lifetime Warranty. We are so certain that you will be pleased with the performance of our Simply45® S45-250 Crimp Tool that we now offer a Lifetime Limited Warranty.  For more details on our Lifetime Limited Warranty, please click here
