Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reneaust RJ45 Cat6 Male Connector
Hey guys, this is a Cat6 connector. It is designed that way with a purpose. The Cat6 cable is designed to have less interference than a Cat 5e cable. It accomplish this through tighter twisting of the wire pairs, 22 gauge conductors instead of 24 gauge conductors in Cat5e cable, and insulating center core of a Cat6 cable. The 3-piece design is to maintain as much insulation between the conductors. Look for instructions on YouTube.

Category 5E and Category 6 mods can be a pain. It takes practice.
Also, stranded cable is a lot more flexible and can be a bit difficult. I suggest solid network cable over stranded if you are having issues getting the cables to seat properly.

Wire ends won't reach gold contacts. Worthless, frustrating, chinsy, carnival prize quality "product".

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FarmerJon Total garbage
3 piece design for an Ethernet jack, seriously? I'm not sure why the other reviewer got so many thumbs down...this product is total garbage. The instructions are garbage, the three piece design is garbage. On my cat 5e jacks you slide the wires in and crimp. On this thing first you slide the twisted pairs through a jacket, then you un-twist and feed them through a sleeve, then you trim, then you slide the sleeve into the jack..but it's virtually impossible to get the sleeve in far enough that the wires get to the contacts. I am returning this product, please save yourself the head ache and do not but.

I've crimped thousands of ethernet cables and grabbed these as they were out of normal RJ45's. What complete and utter garbage! I had to leave the customers site and go to another big box store and get real connectors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Groovy1 Unhelpful assembly documentation makes for a tedious task. Keep shopping!
The manufacturer has NO IDEA how poor their documentation is. Here is a challenge: Figure out, in one minute or less, which way the "liner" is inserted into the body of the connector. Hint: You have to manually/visually match up the shape of the tiny plastic piece to the not-so-obvious internal geometries of the connector body. Really! There is absolutely no help provided by the manufacturer. The product might work for you after a huge amount of fiddling or trial and error, but that just shouldn't be! What little documentation there is has so little detail, both visually and printed, that it makes the job take much longer than you would expect. Ideal needs to rethink their concept and try to catch up with the rest of the industry. They need to design their connector...and thoroughly consumer test (was there ever any?) BEFORE they turn the product loose on the DIY community.

The 3-piece design of this plug makes it really easy to arrange the twisted pairs before crimping. This is by far the best RJ45 plug.
