Platinum Tools® Launches RJ45 Boots

Protect and Organize Your Connectors and Panels

CAMARILLO, Calif., Oct. 29, 2013 - Platinum Tools(R) (, the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce the launch of RJ45 Boots. Now shipping, the RJ45 Boots are designed to work on all standard RJ45 and EZ-RJ45® connectors.

"With the ever increasing use of longer and additional wires and cables in commercial, residential, and security installations, the chances for broken or damaged connectors, as well as tangled and snagged connectors, also increases," explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. "Our new RJ45 Boots prevent tangle messes, eliminate broken release/locking tabs, help maintain radius bend, relieve cable stress, cover the external ground on most shielded connectors, and are color-coded, as well."

The RJ45 ABS Plastic Boots are available in black, white, red, orange, blue, gray, green, yellow, and purple. Boot sizes include 5.5mm / 0.217 inch (typically for Cat5e), 6.0mm / 0.236 inch (typically for small Cat6), 6.5mm / 0.260 inch (typically for medium Cat6), and 7.0mm / 0.275 inch (typically for large Cat6).
