What is EZ Passthrough in the product description? So, the one on Homedepot and Amazon does not have EZ Passthrough or they just haven't described that way?
I was wondering the same and did some brief googling

I think it allows you to run the wires straight through the connector, out the front, then this tool will both crimp and clip the wires off flush at the front of the connector at once. I'm guessing this allows you to easily ensure you have the wires all the way in/through for a good connection, and also means they're lined up at equal length for a durable cable. Seems a little easier to get the job done well. Certainly not critical unless you're doing this a ton though. Maybe someone who knows more has additional details?

Sold Out. For those that don't know what this does. It does things a lot faster and easier. See video below.

OOS is a bit bittersweet. I had a Monoprice cart I hadn't yet pulled the trigger on and didn't need to add anything else to it, but this would have been s great add.

Why would you do that? Pass through is amazing.
I already have 100s of regular RJ45s. Don't want to just toss them. It's not that big of a deal once you have the technique down. I barely did my first cables and after about 10 terminations it was smooth sailing.

That is exactly what it does. The wires pass throug the entire connector and when you crimp it , the tool also cuts off the excess. It's super easy, but the connectors are somewhat more expensive from what I've seen. I am not a bulk purchaser though.

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.
This would be good. It will be hard to run pre-terminated cables. You should still get coupler style jacks so you don't have to punch them down. Just put heads on the cables.

So I just did this two weeks ago. I used the jacks below, but there are other brands that may be better quality.

It was so so easy. Took me about 5 minutes a jack. I bought 100 foot of Cat 6a wire and after cutting I put these on the ends. No special tools required. I had no experience with this before.
Category 6 Jack - White

Nice, thanks for the option. Looks simple.

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!
Dang, that may be simplest way to go about it. Time vs Money conundrum. Haha.
Thanks.

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
Thanks for the info. Sorry you missed it. Frown

No conundrum - time is money esp if doing this for a livelihood!

Some part of a project almost always jams u up hnexpectedly so where u can save time u do it, to combat and compensate for the unknown onstacle(s) to come.

For home use/hobby sure the slo n go way is prob fine and preferred, esp if saves u money on tools and materials

I did a head to head comparison between this and the Klein tools one and the usability of the Klein Version was substantially better for me. Albeit at twice the cost.
