Rated 5 out of 5 by from all worked fine. I found this very easy to fit, even with solid twisted pair cable that had a mind of it's own. I have used other brands, and would says these are very good. All worked first time with no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good connectors These seem to be good quality connectors and reasonably well made for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job These connectors were purchased for my first foray into making my own Ethernet cables and, thankfully, they worked well. I've used them with CAT6 cable. The thickness of the cable/outer insulation is probably on the limit of what the connector can accommodate, but it did fit. CAT5 or 5E would be absolutely fine. The guides inside the connector made getting the 8 wires into the right place simple, and they crimped without issue. As previous reviewers have noted, the retaining clips are a bit weak. The cables I've made won't be disturbed, so it's not an issue, but I could imagine it could be problematic if you were moving it frequently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it is supposed too I bought these after a previous pack of plugs from a different supplier let me down big time. The whole lot had to be remade off as they didn't fit the modules. Screwfix saved the day they were easy to make off and fitted perfectly.

Cable fit

Do the wires push right through the connector then get cut off once the connector has been crimped ?
Asked by: Bluevanman63
Hello Bluevanman63 The wires should push to the end of the connector, but not out the other side. Wires should be trimmed to the appropriate length before insertion into the connector. Thanks for using Q&A, KC

Connection to Cable

How do these connectors connect to the cable ? Is a tool required ?? Thnx
Asked by: Menher
Hi, The answer from screwfix is incorrect. the tool you need is an RJ45 CUTTER / CRIMPER (22799) Not an impact insertion tool.

Conductor Type

Can I use solid conductors with this connector
Asked by: johnjohn44
I managed to get some solid core cat6 into the connector but it was a tight squeeze. Unfortunately I wasn't able to test the resulting lead as the connectors themselves wouldn't fit my cable tester nor any of the RJ45 sockets in my house!

Do these suit CAT5e or CAT6, or both?

I want to know whether these RJ45 plugs are suitable for CAT6? thanks.
Asked by: StokeyBloke
I have used these with CAT6 without a problem, but it was a bit of a tight fit! They are definitely fine for CAT5e (the ones I bought specifically mentioned CAT5e on the packet).
