Do you know if you can crimp and trim any passthrough connectors with this? Monoprice has their EZ Passthroughs priced $25+... but I can get a 100 pack on Amazon for $14.

What's actual normal price on this?
No way this is $91 regularly, even platinum tools isn't that bad lol
You can get these at 20$ to 50$ from Amazon depending on model but they all do they same. I got one expensive one and a cheap one from home depot & they are identical.

Just buy the cheapest one. I've used these before and they are mostly all the same. These things have standards that must be adhered to so they all work more or less the same.

Does this work for regular rj45 (non-passthrough)?
Why would you do that? Pass through is amazing.

This is probably the wrong place to ask but figured it would be a good start.
I don't have any ethernet cables currently run in my house. I wanted to run a couple lines from the living room where my modem and router are through the walls to a couple other places.
Would this and some cat 6 cable be my best bet? Along with some wall jacks on both sides. Longest run will be about 10'.
I was thinking about getting coupler style jacks on each wall and just buying long pre-terminated cables but don't know if that's a good idea.
Also consider: Ethernet over Power line Adapters for a simple way to accomplish your goals here.

The only negative is the cost of the adapters ($50+ for min req 2/pk), but you can make any power outlet an Ethernet port quickly.

Plug the first adapter into your power outlet near router and connect them via Ethernet cable.

Then go plug another adapter into an outlet closest to your end point device needing wired Ethernet access and you'll now have wired Ethernet between the endpoint and router.

Performance varies based on your power lines. You can always return them so it's worth a shot.

I am simply sharing an option to explore. Good luck!

Tried a quick Google and didn't immediately see anything. How are "passthrough" RJ45 connectors different than normal ones? Can this tool crimp any standard RJ45 connector?

I've made hundreds of ethernet cables at work and somehow have never heard of this passthrough terminology. TIA.

Not exactly the same tool, Mono's doesnt look like it is a ratchet. But the one you listed is $13.26 at Home Depot. But yeah, there seems to be at least 7 different company names on this tool.

Looks like a ratchet to me. Look inside the handle, you'll see the clicker.

I paid $45 for this one from Lowes https://low.es/2O9WMtr. $14 is a steal.

Pass through connectors have open holes at the top which allow you to push the wire THROUGH the connector so you can inspect the order. Then you use crimpers like these to cut off the wires when crimping the connector.

I just looked up a video. I was in the same boat as you. Technically, once you unshield the wiring, you can place the cable through a pass through rj45 connector and the wiring will go out the other end.(ex; cat6)

With the crimper, you can crimp the connector and cut the wires in one pull.

If you are planning on running through the wall and putting up a wall plate, you may not even need this crimper, it depends on what you get for wall plates.Some of them you will use a "keystone" so the bare wires get pushed down into the keystone (kind of hard to explain, you'd be best looking it up if you're unfamiliar). Some plates do have you plug in a terminated cable into the back and just act as a coupler. If you need a normal terminated cable, I absolutely recommend having EZ Ends and an EZ Crimper. Instead of having to make sure you get exactly the right amount of wire stripped and unraveled and put in the right order, you can give yourself plenty of extra and the wires "pass through" the end of the connector, and the EZ Crimper not only crimps the connector in place but also cuts off the excess stripped wire. Saves a lot of time and hassle, especially if you haven't done a lot of ethernet ends in the past. They aren't "difficult" but they can be frustrating and time consuming.

The only real difference I've noticed between any of these crimpers is the quality of the blade to cut the wires, and unless it's a total junk crimper those blades should be replacable (unscrew, remove blade, put in replacement, rescrew it in place). You can order "nicer" blades down the line if needed. These EZ Crimpers used to cost a fortune (the $96 original price isn't super far off where they used to be)...but they've come down a lot in recent years where $25-35 isn't impossible to find. At $14 I'm gonna pick one up though, that's cheap!

EDIT: Took too long writing this out....OOS when I go to add to cart. Frown

good price for a pass-thru crimper.
fancier alternatives are 30$ [homedepot.com]-45$ [homedepot.com] Kleins in HD (20% off available) or $30 Amazon [amazon.com]
