We are huge fans of manufacturers that are forward thinking with their product development; the EXO Crimp Frame is a great example of that. As technology advances, wire and connectors are going to continue to evolve. Platinum Tools EXO Crimp Frame is engineered to allow users to swap out dies as needed and avoid having to purchase an entirely new tool. The EXO Crimp Frame has dies available for EZ-RJ45 (not included) as well as the newer exEZ-RJ45 connectors (included).

This EXO Crimp Frame comes equipped with Platinum Tools EXO-EX die which is designed specifically for the exEZ-RJ45 connector. If you are not familiar with the ezEX-RJ45 connectors, they were engineered specifically for terminating larger diameter twisted-pair cables with conductor sizes up to .048in. The exEZ-RJ45 allows for the larger wire by cleverly staggering each conductor. As with all EZ connectors, the wiring can be quickly verified by the wires protruding prior to crimping. It is important to note the exEZ-RJ45 connectors can only be crimped with this EXO crimper and EXO-EX Die.

One really cool feature that stuck out to our team is the "click" you hear once the connector is in the crimper. That "click" means it's the right connector for the die and it's ready to crimp. Another great addition is the push button lock mechanism that makes the tool easy to put back into your tool bag. When it's in it's locked position, the Die is firmly secured in the frame and will not let loose and fall out.

The EXO-EX Die (part number: PLA-100071C) included with this Crimper is not backward compatible with current EZ-RJ45 connectors. This Die must only be used with ezEX44 and ezEX48 connectors. See below for compatible connector part numbers.

    5 of 5 As advertised great product December 17, 2019
    Reviewer: jim petrocelli from Norwood, NJ United States  
    These crimpers do exactly what they are advertised . The larger 23awg shielded cable wouldn’t fit in any of my existing cat 6 ends and once you purchase the correct ends you need the correct tool to crimp them. This frame allows for both with an interchangeable die system and reversible for left or right hand comfort. Well thought out

    5 of 5 Good tool November 12, 2019
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Southfield, MI United States  
    I'm the general foreman for a crew of 8 technicians at a very busy and large telecom company.  I started ordering these crimpers for my techs and have had great success with them.  everyone seems to like them and really like the fact that you can leave the pairs long and not have to worry about getting enough in the end to crimp.  Overall this has been a big success for us.
