Punchdown Tool With Both 66 and 110 Blades
Punchdown Tool
With Both
66 and 110 Blades
PT3759DUAL
$70.95

PT3579DUAL If you're going to do your own phone wiring on 66 or 110 blocks, you need a punchdown tool.  There is no other correct way to connect wire on blocks than with a proper punchdown tool.  A punchdown tool is also used to connect wires on 110 IDC jacks and patch panels.

The Paladin 3579 has both 66 and 110 blades with cut (a.k.a. punch and cut) and non-cut (punch only) ends on each blade. The cut end is used to terminate cables, to install cross-connect jumpers direct between two block positions, and to install the first and last positions on "daisy chain" jumpers. The non-cut end is used to install the intermediate positions on "daisy chain" jumpers without cutting so that the wire can route to the next positon. If you will be using both 66 and 110 blocks or 66 blocks and 110 IDC jacks, this is an ideal punchdown tool to purchase.

This tool has HI/LO setting for the impact spring compression. The grip is rubber cushioned - a fact you'll appreciate before you finish punching all the cables and cross-connects on just one 66 or 110 block.

This tool accepts standard twist-lock blades.  Don't be fooled by less expensive tools that use "screw on" or "push-in" blades that are not the industry standard.  Those blades might be difficult to locate when you need a replacement.  The few extra dollars for a tool that accepts standard blades is money well spent.

The blade that is not in use can be stored in the "well" in back of the handle.

Sorry, punchdown tools can't be returned for a refund.  If you don't want to keep a punchdown tool after you finish your installation, consider renting instead of buying a new one.

These tools are the same punchdown tool handle as the 3579 tool above, but with only one blade.

The blades of the PT3572-110 and PT3573-66B have cut and non-cut ends.

The PT3571COMB has a combo blade with both 66 and 110 cut ends.  Note that the 66/110 combo blade can't be used for installing "daisy chain" cross-connect jumpers, which requires a blade with a non-cut (punch only) end.  If you need to install "daisy chain" jumpers, either add a cut/non-cut blade for your block type to your order (see below) or select one of the other punchdown tools with cut/non-cut blades.

One spare blade (not included) can be stored in back of the handle.

Sorry, punchdown tools can't be returned for a refund.  If you don't want to keep a punchdown tool after you finish your installation, consider renting instead of buying a new one

Non-impact Punchdown Tools
These tools are intended for low volume termination of wires on jacks and patch panels.  These are a good choice if you already have an existing block and just need to change the occasionals cross-connect jumper or if you will only be terminating a few jacks.  They have a "comfortable" rubber handle grip handle that fits in the palm of your hand, but I don't really recommend trying to use one of these for terminating an entire block of cables.  The user must provide all of the force required to punch, seat, and cut the wires - more work than you'd think.  If you are terminating an entire block, the spring force provided by an impact tool like those sold above makes the job much easier.  The blade on these tools are fixed in the handle and are cut only (punch and cut).  They are not suitable for installing "daisy chain" jumpers on blocks, which requires a non-cut (punch only) blade.    Sorry, punchdown tools can't be returned for a refund.

MPPDT Head
MPPDT-4-PR

A multi-pair punchdown tool is the preferred method of installing station cables and seating the "c clips" on a 110 block.  If you have a continuing need to install 110 blocks, you should purchase one of these.  Sorry, multi-pair punchdown tools can't be returned for a refund.  If you don't want to purchase one, consider renting one

A multi-pair punchdown tool has a reversible blade to terminate wires on the block with or without cutting the wires.  It can terminate and cuts up to five pairs on a 110 block at the same time with one punch motion! It is also used to seat the 110 "c clip" connecting blocks onto the 110 block base.

Paladin Muti-function Utility Tools
As a phone tech, I think these are the neatest multi-function utility tools on the market.  They are a fold up pocket tool that includes a long nose plier and an assortment of knife and utility blades.  They are built for Paladin by SOG, known as a maker of high quality mutlti-function tools.  The neat thing is that the Paladin tools are designed especially for telephone installation work.  They have non-impact punchdown blades that fold out and lock in place, just like the other blades.  The PT-525 has both 66 and 110 blades, a 1/4" hex drive, and other blades chosen to to make it idealfor both telephone installation work and general utility, plus covers that fold over the open tool sides to make it much more comfortable to use.  The PT-510 has a 110 blade and a nice assortment of general utility blades.  Both tools include a leather holster so you can keep them handy on your belt.  Paladin has a great site that provides a lot more information about these great tools.  For more details, go to http://www.powerplaytools.com/

Cable Prep/
Strip Tool
CAPREP1913
$4.95

Minimum Order is $15.
Please refer to
Minimum Order
before proceeding to check-out.

This tool is handy for making nice neat cuts around the sheath of 4-pair cable like the CAT5E CMX offered here without damaging the insulation of the wires inside.  It also has a 110 punch head that is suitable for limited use terminating wires on IDC jacks and placing jumpers on 110 blocks when a standard punchdown tool is not readily available.

Note: The 110 punch head on this tool does not cut wires when they are punched down.  The "tails" of wires that are too long must be carefully cut with scissors or some other tool to avoid the wire pulling loose from its termination.  This tool is not strong enough for seating clips on a 110 block or for continuous use for terminating a lot of jacks or cross-connect jumpers.  It should not be considered as a replacement for a standard punchdown tool with a 110 blade.

This tool is similar to the CAPREP1913 offered above, but is slightly less robust. This tool is about 3/16" thick, while the CAPREP1913 above is about 1/4" thick.

If you are doing a "one-time" job that will only involve a few jacks/cables, this tool should be fine and will save a few dollars. However, if you are wiring an entire house or plan on using the tool again in the future, you might want to consider spending a few extra dollars for the CAPREP1913 shown above.

All of the comments about the CAPREP1913 regarding appropriate use and applications apply to this tool also.
