​Need of a Network Installation Toolkit

​Being spent almost 30 years in field as a network technician i think that a good installation kit makes your life a hell much easier. In fact i was once told by my senior that "A network kit works like a rope to you when you are sinking in a everglade or river". Acting on his advice i always invested few bucks on my networks kits and i must say that they always paid me back, I suggest to my juniors that for earning a good bread and butter you must spend on quality tools.

​These network kits are not only recommended for a professional technician but also equally good and must have for home common usage for your little home based LAN. 

Another reason for buying the kit is that it is more cost effective as compared to buying each of the tools individually. We have made sure that we list here only those network kits that outclassed other in our performance tests and that are the best buy for our readers.

​How we chosen the kits for you

​Our review team at NetworkTesters© constituted of three network technicians who evaluated the kits by practically performing tasks of crimping and stripping. Other than that we rated and handpicked the kits based on overall quality and usability of the equipment as well.

​The kits we have chosen are not only for computer network technicians but equally good for telephone lines test, alarm cables, computer cables, intercom lines and speaker wires functions testing.
