Overview
Don‘t let it‘s size fool you. The NEW FT-45 is a simple, compact and highly effective modular plug crimp tool for installers and techs that terminate RJ-45 connectors regularly. Instead of another traditional oversized, heavy, crimp tool style loaded with features that are rarely used or that just don‘t work well, we took this tool in a new direction. It‘s built for today and tomorrow, not the past.
This tool was designed to work seamlessly with the IDEAL Feed-Thru Modular plugs, and is compatible with other feed-thru style connectors. A major benefit of Feed-Thru plugs is that they allow the individual conductors to "feed-thru" the end-face of the connector allowing the user to verify the wires are in the correct order prior to crimping the connector.
During crimping, the FT-45 cleanly shears the excess conductors and leaves a smooth, flat finish to the end face of the IDEAL Feed-Thru connector. No protrusions or small lengths of conductor remain beyond the plastic face of the connector. This minimizes accidental shorting of conductors or inadvertent contact in plug jacks.
Fitted with a single universal crimp cavity for RJ-45 / 8-position connectors that can be used with Feed-Thru, standard, or shielded connectors for CAT5e or CAT6. No need to carry multiple tools for terminating RJ-45's.
A custom, heavy duty cutting blade that stays sharp, has minimal flex and will last for over 2,000 cuts before it needs replacing. Replacement blades are available (30-4951).
A patent pending mechanical design that requires only 1/3 to 1/2 the hand force of traditional tools to crimp the connector - no ratchet mechanism is needed and one handed crimping is possible.
The tool is compact, 5 1/2“ in length and weighs just over 1/2lb, about half the size and weight of bulkier traditional tools so it easily fits in your pocket and lightens the tool bag load.

More than 100 years ago, Ideal Tools got their start making tools with the vision of making tools that were more valuable than their sale price. Ideal has continued to make tools with this mindset and as a result, their tools were used in some big projects, namely the first expeditions to the South Pole and even the moon. Even with great achievements like these under their belts, Ideal has stayed true to their values as a family-owned business and have gone to great lengths to ensure their tools are made in the USA and that no corners are cut. Ideal Tools are used by electricians and other tradesmen thus ensuring that quality tools finish the job.
