MOORPARK, Calif., April 21, 2009 - Platinum Tools (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable, is proud to introduce the All -In -One Modular Plug Crimp Tool (P/N: 12503). Now shipping with an MSRP $29.95, the All -In -One is designed for a broad range of telecom and network, security, residential structured wiring, whole house and custom install A/V, and professional and commercial A/V applications. The tool combines a rugged design with the convenience of terminating all popular plug configurations used in voice, data, and A/V installations.


"The All -In -One tool is a necessity for voice, data, and A/V installers," explained Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools, Inc. president and general manager. "This comprehensive, precision tool not only terminates a wide range of plugs and strips a broad range of cables, it replaces up to five other tools. The All -In -One cuts costs and eliminates the annoyance of never having the right tool for the task."

Steel framed with PVC handles and rust resistant black oxide finish, the lightweight (12oz.) All -In -One terminates RJ45, RJ11/12, and RJ22 (handset) plugs to solid or stranded cable from most manufacturers, including: RJ 45 - Cat 3/5/5e/6 (8p8c); keyed and non -keyed; RJ12 - 6p6c; RJ11 - 6p4c/6p2c; and RJ22 (handset) - 4p4c/4p2c.

"Three separate crimp cavities (4, 6, and 8 position) are designed to provide precise, repeatable, and reliable terminations," added Sachs. "The All -In -One's ratcheting mechanism guarantees optimal pressure is applied so the contacts are seated to the correct depth and its vertical action assures all contacts are seated to the same depth providing an FCC compliant termination. In addition, replaceable cutting blades (P/N: 12503BL -C) allow the user to strip round (Cat 3 -6) and flat (silver satin) cables. This is a must have for the discerning installer and technician."
