Connector for cat 5e

Recommended Posts

I had pulled cat 5e Into each room when I installed base board heat. Was for possible future use. Now a few years later I need one of the cat 5e cables. Do they have a connector that does NOT use a HAND tool. I only have to put connectors on 1 cat 5e cable.

I've done it with needle nose pliers and a small screwdriver ... but I can't say I'd recommend it. Here's a guy with a video:

 

I've had a crimping tool for years. Seems to me I got it at somewhere like home depot or walmart with 20 or 25 connectors for something less than $15. I just looked quickly at Walmart and they have several crimping tools for $8 to $10. Looks like prices have gone up over time as the kits with a tool and 20 ends are now $31.
