RJ45 Connector Pack of 10
They do the job
I used these with CAT 6 solid core cable and a decent quality crimper. Once the wires are cut to the correct length for the connector and they are laid out flat, inserting into the connector is assisted by small guide ridges within the connector. The retainer clip is not the best so if the equipment will move about (ie laptop on your knees) then you may find it falls out of the socket occasionally. The wire crimp is secure when pulled. Overall they are simple and do the job.

Worked for me
I only needed two connectors for an extra cable run.
Both crimped fine and worked.
Average for reliability as only just purchased.

They are absolutely fine.
I have fitted 4 of these without any problems.
I am unsure why other people have had problems.
The cat 5 cable pushes in very easily (making sure all wires are exactly the same length and exactly 12.5mm long).
Once crimped they fit snugly into the router/computer socket. I had a practise with one and tried to pull it out much harder than I would as a test, it did not come out of the computer socket.
I also gave the cat5 cable a hard pull trying to dislodge from the RJ45 once crimped, it did not budge.
I used the screwfix crimp tool (22799) as this had much better reviews than the cheaper one (30318). However, I did not use the wire stripper part of the crimp tool as it was not sensitive enough (and often left bare pieces of wire showing) I used normal wire cutters.
Rated with 4 stars as I have no other RJ45's to compare it to.

Don't fit my connector/router
Bought these to fit on the end of some cables I have laid. I also have a couple of connectors that they should fit. They are about 1/2mm too wide so won't fit.
