Rated 1 out of 5 by from Must have a dodgy batch Using cat5 cable also bought from screwfix; I don't know if I've stumbled on a bad batch but these aren't making clean connections at all. Have wasted 7 to get 3 good connections and have also used multiple crimp tools.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OK for CAT5e, USELESS for CAT6 The listing & specs don't specify whether this was CAT6 or CAT5(e). While they might work for CAT6, you'll have a nightmare getting them on the cable (like I did), and you'll almost certainly snap the retaining tab off when you crimp it (like I did, every time) which means the cable will not be securely fitted to the connector. Cheap? Yes. Fit for purpose? Only if that purpose is making up old spec cables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from God plugs I dislike RJ45 connectors, but these ones are the best I have used. Have purchased more for small jobs.

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.

Cable fit

Do the wires push right through the connector then get cut off once the connector has been crimped ?
Asked by: Bluevanman63
No. The wires are cut at approx 10mm and then inserted into the plug before crimping. Looking into the rear of the plug with the brass connectors facing up, colours from left (Pin 1) Or/Wt, Or, Gr/Wt, Bl, Bl/Wt, Gr, Br/Wt Br. Both ends to follow the same sequence. Exception if the cable is to be a crossover, then one end to follow: Gr/Wt, Gr, Or/Wt, Bl, Bl/Wt, Or, Br/Wt, Br

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).
