Do these work with Cat6 cables?

Asked by: Jason
"Work"? Yes. Full speed Gigabit? Possibly not. I'd suggest getting ones that say Cat6 on the packaging.

What is the easiest way to insert the wires in the proper order?

Asked by: joe
Leave about 2 inches of the twisted pairs sticking out of the sheathing and then untwist them, placing them into the sequence you want. Then cut them to about ¾ an inch and insert them into the plug holding the plug with the tab facing down. Remove the wires from the plug checking the color sequence again and trim them down to about 3/8 an inch with the guillotine cutter on the crimper and then insert them for the final crimp. In other words there is no easy way but this works for me 99% of the time. The sequence is: Org/wht, Org, Grn/Wht, Blu, Blu/wht, Grn, Brn/wht, Brn for 568 B wiring. Swap the orange pairs with the green pairs for the A sequence.

I installed close to 100 of these and have not had one failure due to manufacturing defect etc. I would recommend anyone who is making their own cables to use these.
