The Telephone/Data Cable Splice and Repair Kit includes the Kinetic? Super IDC specialty tool and red connectors needed for common telephone splice/tap applications as well as for repairing damaged data or voice conductors. The all-in-one tool can cut, strip, and crimp all types of jellybean UR/UY/UB IDC contact butt and tap connectors. The kit includes 25 gel-filled UR Red, 3-wire butt splice connectors.
The tool is designed with a special parallel action, smooth flat plate crimping area that evenly crimps the jellybean in a consistent manner that leaves the connector body undamaged. Traditional linesman or other types of generic pivoting pliers do not offer a parallel action and will damage the plastic shell of the connector, or not seat the wires properly into the IDC sockets.
The tool will work with all industry standard IDC jellybean type connectors.
The tool also includes 22 and 24 AWG stripping holes and a wire cutter for other common telephone installation requirements.
When using the IDC connectors – do NOT strip the individual conductors before inserting them into the connectors. The connectors, once crimped, will pierce the insulating jacket of the conductors providing common conductivity among the conductors.
