The Termination Tool is a special instrument for comfortable tailoring of ethernet jacks. The prism shaped jaw allows efficient connection of all eight wires simultaneously. Frontal appliance and large handles enable stress-free installation over long terms, even in demanding space situations. Thanks to a good balance of shape and material, no additional mechanical fastening elements were required. This is an economical advance and subsequently facilitates recycling. The red and black elements integrate well into the product line and corporate design of the manufacturer.
