The right solution to customize your lengths of Cat5E network cables. These modular plugs are manufactured from high-impact clear polycarbonate to withstand everyday wear and tear, and have 50? gold-plated contacts for error-free data transfer for data applications.
Pros: The connectors handle both solid and stranded. That's about the only pro.
Cons: Horrible design that severely increases custom cable termination time. I have been using another brand of RJ-45 connectors with load bars and these CTG connectors are just plain terrible to use. Wires simply do not feed into the load bar without very perfect alignment and messing with. To top it off the load bar is almost pointless because inside the connector the individual wires still need to feed into additional holes so that the insulation displacement mechanism can still cut into the wire sticking out of the load bar.
Other Thoughts: Unfortunately I can't remember the brand that I purchased before but they simply just require a slight diagonal cut and then you push in to the load bar and the wires just simply find the holes in the load bar and go into place. Afterwards the insulation displacement mechanism just cuts straight down through the top of the load bars into the wires. Very smart idea. It works very well and very fast.
