Punches? Snips? Toners? What to carry to be a pro and get any job DONE!
What’s in a Professional Network Cabling Kits?
We’ve shown you how we do things as Professional Cabling Installers, now we’d like to show you what we carry to make things done quickly and efficiently! In this video, we are featuring what we carry when we are going to do an installation. If you want to see them, continue watching!
First and a must have for every people in the team is the Klein work belt. The work belt must have electrical tapes, snips (I generally carry two pairs just in case I lose one.), it also has a very functional multi tool, it has a drill holder, and a blade. This is $45 Klein work belt and can do any cabling jobs with this!
Next, we’ll show you our kit. This is a kit we got from Stanley. We need something with wheels making it very easy to just roam around back and forth the area. On top we keep out fragile tools. What we got are bunch of short jumpers and basic testers. Then there’s a Fluke tester and a toner. Here’s a secret, we carry with us a $10 toner from amazon because sometimes Fluke bleeds through so bad that it’s better to use the cheap to find the cable fast. That’s what I can suggest to our network cabling professionals, have two toners to save your time. Then there’s a little can of screws, another Klein multi tool screwdrivers, security bit set, tape measure, stud finder, a drywall saw, extra batteries (always wrapped), 2 Fluke punches, and a label maker.
Another cool stuff we bring are a handy drill bit extender, small screwdriver for server work, telescopic tube with magnetic bit holder, rack screws, and the most special tool we have: Klein bushing grommet drill out. Of course, might be a miss to everyone, but always carry a cellphone charger. We also carry a whole set of Paddle bits, which we consider an installer’s best friend. You don’t have to worry if you need to get a hole or if you need to go through wood, just put it in the drill.
Here’s another trick we’d like to show you. I’m showing you a magic eraser. If your guys has scuffed off the wall, put a little water… it will remove any prints or dirt marks.
That is what we have on the top of the kit. Now let me show you inside the middle kit.
We have assortment of screws and pens, another different bits…wood, metal and paddle. If you have these, you can get through any wall plus the drill bit extension. We always try to carry small wire ties for dressing.
Next is the main part of the kit, the fun stuff!
We carry a Fluke Butt set but I go with the small, cheaper and simple butt set and has been with installations and saved the day a lot of times. We also carry $20 Walmart label maker which has done a good job for me, just make sure you use white plastic labels instead of paper labels so it won’t peel right off.
Now here comes my best friend… The drill. Every time you go on site, you need to make sure it’s plugged in and you have batteries backed up. It’s good to invest in a drill. Plus you’ll get to see more screws in this main kit and we also carry trash bags. Making sure to leave a clean site. We also have a mule tape strength for high tension and works better than a pull string. And here’s another mule tape strength with a paddle and it can get down a wall fast. Of course, drywall caddies and multi colored tapes for signals, fish tapes, gloves, RJ crimpers to make custom cables, heavier gauge snipping tool, a mini hammer, and finally a flashlight!
