    Default Ez rj45 or Pass through rj45 .. what I wish I knew in the beginning .

    It is important to note that it is best to get rj45 modules that match you cable .
    cat 5 , 5e for cat 5, 5e modules
    cat 6 -cat6 modules

    I had wanted to get the ez rj45 tool from Platinum tools but I found a better solution that has much better reviews

    I absolutely hate the ez-rj45. We have some at work. If I do use the connectors because there is nothing else on hand I will use my standard crimpers and trim the ends with a utility knife. The ez-rj45 crimp tool is garbage as far as I am concerned. I have had issues with those connectors too, if the ends are not trimmed completely flush sometimes they will not engage a jack completely.

    I much prefer the 2 piece rj45 connectors now. Those are the cats meow as far as I am concerned.

    In the end, whatever works for you is good.
    Thanks,
    Brian, your friendly site Admin.

    This tool and the modules work like a dream .
    It does not get any easier than this .

    Please note : This is the pass through and not the ez rj45 from Platinum !

    I've been using the Platinum EZ RJ45 for years with no trouble.

    personally I don't like any of the connectors that allow the wire to push thru the connector. I like the standard connectors with the solid front. I use a crimper like this:
    https://www.greenlee.com/products/CR...oduct_id=17708

    It provides even pressure on all of the pins and gives a better termination than any of those that press on an angle like pliers do. It also has the trimmer in the handle so you only need the one tool.
