Answer: 
Stephanie the change was made a little over a year ago. We made the change because of feedback from end-users having difficulty getting the old design to pass certification testing. This new design helps them consistently make a Cat 6 connection that will pass certification testing. Thanks for the question Ron at Ron.kipper@idealindustries.com

The change was made sometime between the middle of 2015 and the beginning of 2016 from what I have seen from buying these in local HD stores. The diameter of the holes in the wire guide have gotten smaller and the tapered middle section is also gone and now squared off (another bad decision).
I hope someone from Ideal reads all the negative reviews and at the least changes the sled back to the open Read More

I hope someone from Ideal reads all the negative reviews and at the least changes the sled back to the open design. If you not capable of properly trimming the individual conductors to the proper length, you have no business crimping RJ45 connectors or even thinking about making your own patch cables. This design change goes completely backwards as far as ease of use and reliability. I am certain many share my opinion and this will be reflected in lower sales numbers for this product. Ideal you have lost a ton of repeat business from me, I am now going to a competitor. Read Less

Answer: 
They didn't. I had a pack like that, the sleds were over-molded. I had to trim the ends of the sleds with a utility knife.
I have had mixed results with these, and for the price I will buy elsewhere.

Answer: 
The change was made last year. You will find a video attached to the product that will step you through how to terminate the new style. The reason for the change was end users where not trimming the conductors flush with the liner and when inserting it into the plug the excess conductors would not allow the liner to fully seat within the body of the plug and not making good connections. The new style Read More

The new style fixes the problem and we consistently get better results. The reason we make them three parts is it takes a lot of end user error out of the equation. Thanks for the question.

Rated 1.9 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible product Out of all the plugs I used I had half of them that did not work. They connected at 10 megs or 100 megs and not 1 gig. This indicated there was a connection problem with wire. After looking at the defective plugs the problem is that when the wires are crimped. I made sure to fully crimp the wires to make contact but you can see where the crimp did not seat exactly on top of the wire indicating that the ends were not exactly straight after being pushed into the plug. If you compare the old design the wires thread all the way through the sled which allows you to make sure they are seated properly. This new design causes you to cut between a 1/4 of a inch to 1/2 and then push the connector onto the sled piece. Since the wires are supposed to keep the twist for cross this makes it very difficult to keep your wire straight. It costs $1.50 a plug to make a successful wire and after waste you have already spent $3.00 to $5.00 just on plugs. Do not waste your time on these. It will cost you a lot of wasted time and money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New 3 piece plug design Oh good grief. What is the problem? For those who have had difficulty with the new design, have you watched the suggested video? The first plug I attached, I watched and followed the video demonstration. The second plug I attached without the video. The cable passed the test. Does the new design require more time? Yes, there are three pieces to assemble rather than just one. Is it impossible to assemble a working cable using the new design? No, it just takes a little practice. August 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Please Watch the Video Folks please watch the video before trying to install these connectors! Cat 6 cable is significantly better at reducing noise and interference and a key part of the system is the connection itself. Cat 6 cable certification testers are used to test a cable installation, they are very expensive and most folks will not do that level of testing but these plugs are designed to be able to pass. Hence the 3 pieces and why it is more difficult than a traditional 1 piece design. If you are using the cable for basic Ethernet services in most cases a one piece connector can be used but will not pass certification testing. Hope that helps Ron at ron.kipper@idealindustries.com June 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by New design and it's terrible - Don't waste your time. I purchased a 25-pack Dec 2015 at my local HD store and found the design of the plug's internal liner has changed and it's much more difficult to assemble now. The internal liner that acts like a wire loom is no longer drilled all the way through so you can't pull the 8 wires through the slider and trim them to length AFTER you've got them nice and straight and verified they're still in the correct order. Now, you're working with only 1/4" of the wire plus two, tiny plastic pcs. Good luck getting them lined up and assembled into a connector. I can't count how many times the slider flicked off the end of the wires and I had to go find it. Too bad EZRJ-45 Cat6 connectors are no longer available at my local store. December 14, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst product ever If there was an award for making a simple task as difficult as possible, this would win. There are MUCH better products for the same money. Just get some ez-rj45 connectors and a tool. TRUST me...you'll be a lot happier. The pieces used to make these connections are horrible. Why does there need to be 3 separate pieces? This doesn't even make Cat 3 specs. I can't say the word 'HORRIBLE' enough to describe this mess. VERY dissatisfied. Typical chinese junk.....taiwan actually, but there's not much difference. June 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy Picked up a 15 pack and tried 6 times to get these to make a good connection to no avail. Now this is no my first rodeo and I had all the proper tools so there is no excuse for them not to work. I am an aircraft mechanic by trade so I have worked with wires, connectors, and crimping tools of all kinds for over 20 years. I finally went to another store and picked up a different brand and style of connector. And now I am up and running. May 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Should have read the reviews Terrible design! why does Home depot even sell these when the 1 piece type connectors are so much better. I crimped 16+ wires with just 2 good connections. I bought the 1 piece type connectors and was 8 for 8 - all work fine in a short time May 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works but not "ideal" On the one hand, I was able to build a working cable so it gets 3 stars. On the other hand, the 3-piece design did not seem particularly helpful and the instructions didn't help, mostly because the illustrations had a low resolution black and white photograph, so I couldn't tell how the different pairs were supposed to feed through the "sled." The 3 piece design seems complicated without feeling like it really helps get the wires lined up. I'll probably try a different brand next time. June 29, 2015
