- Punch-down tool
The D814 is a versatile punchdown/termination tool with changeable blades (sold separately) that enables 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 D814 tool handle can be fitted with several interchangeable custom blades (sold 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.
