The versatile punchdown/termination tool uses changeable blades (sold separately) that enable installers to make reliable connections on a variety of wire termination blocks. A simple push on the handle accomplishes punchdown termination in one simple operation. An adjustable impact setting allows you to terminate wire with less effort than other impact tools.
The tool handle can be fitted with several interchangeable custom blades (shown below) to cover many termination types: 110 IDC, 66-clip, Krone, BIX (Northern Telecom BIX system), and an awl (woodscrew starter punch). Krone and BIX blades feature scissor-action trimming. A spare blade can be kept in a storage chamber in the handle. Special application blades used with the impact tool can terminate 22, 24 or 26 gauge wire and are made of durable stainless steel.
