Philex RJ45 CAT5E Jack Punch Down Outlet 90Â° White
A bit Fiddly
Have bought various types of these jack plugs this one was fiddly to use prefer the type that just push down then cap pushed on.

Not the best solution
Difficult to use, had to struggle several times to get the IDC connections made using the small lever supplied. Much easier to revert more traditional module and tried and tested IDC insertion tool. would not recommend this style of cat5 module

Easy, tool-less fitting
I used these following recommend to install a few home network points.
The connector is easy to fit and doesn't require any special tools. Simply strip the cable outer sheath and align the individual conductors to their respective positions and close the fitting to self-crimp all conductors. A small 'lever' is supplied which allows an extra-firm compression of the connector.
The fitting is well marked to allow easy termination for either T568A or B standard.
In contrary to other review, the fitting does have facility to fit cable tie (tie is even included in pack).
Good value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to use these again.

Very easy to use and colour coded guide making sure you've got the wires in the same order at either end!
One thing worth mentioning - this comes with some clips that punch down the wires automatically when you put it together.
So dont do what I did which was to spend an afternoon trying to find a punchdown tool (Screwfix dont sell them) only to get home and realise I didnt need one in the first place!
