The punchdown tool is one of the most important tools in a low voltage electrician or IT professionals tool kit.  Over the years I have used many different brands of punchdown tools.  A punchdown tool allows you to terminate a cable into a block.  Basically think of phone and network cable jacks in the wall.  Using a cheap punchdown will result in mediocre connections that will lead to trouble and diagnostic headaches. Professionals take pride in their work and to help you get the best job possible you need a quality tool.
