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 2.0 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by There are better plugs out there. Over the course of my career I have had opportunity to make all types of communication connections. Although this plug, if assembled properly, may meet or exceed CAT 6 NEXT specs, I would not recommend it for the beginner, especially if time is money. These plugs worked for me however I have used many quicker to assemble, pull through type of connectors that easily passed channel and permanent link tests for CAT 6. Sorry, but I would prefer to see a single piece plug available for the weekend project user, less chance of making a mistake in assembling . September 26, 2016
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 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 Find something else Does not hold the cable very tight. Wires easily pull out of connector September 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As a first timer: Incredibly EASY to use! I was really hesitant to buy these given the mixed reviews all over the 'net, but I needed them in a pinch and this was all that was in stock in town. Long story short: These are great for newbies. Watch the video a few times to walk you through your first few and you'll be breezing through the rest after that. I've never terminated ethernet cable before. From what I can gather having read the majority of reviews on these on different sites, the manufacturer tried to design these to make them a little easier for newbies like me -- with extra pieces designed to walk you through each step. The seasoned network installation folks apparently don't like this because it adds an extra step. For a newbie like me I thought it was great. I used this with solid copper Cat6 cable and it worked fine for me. I had the watch the tutorial video from the manufacturer about three times to get me going. Once I got the hang of things I found these plugs to be a breeze to use . . . I kind of don't get what the big deal is. There are a couple of extra steps involved as compared to some other plugs, but these steps are designed to ensure everything is lined up in order, and to keep the twists in tact for the best performance. All-in-all I am quite happy with these. It's also nice to see the manufacturer popping on to all of the review websites to give feedback. Gotta give kudos to the guy for not losing his cool -- he probably dropped a lot of time and money into designing these to be easy for first timers like me and to see all the reviews tank is kind of a shame. Thanks for a great product! September 26, 2016
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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tedious This works well but it was a little difficult to get all the wires in place with all the pieces of this modular design. September 13, 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
