Is there a boot type cover, or any cover for the cable in side of this jack to help keep dust and...

there is a dust cover that comes with the port, but it would not do much for moisture. If you have that much moisture in your walls then you might have other issues to worry about.

Will it work with category 5 cable

Yes it should without issue but a cat5 one will be cheaper I used these for a new house and the customer had the house wired with cat6 cable we are also using POE (power over ethernet) on all Wi-Fi Access points rather than having power outlets mounted high next to the ceiling in 3 rooms for a Wi-Fi mesh the office downstairs is hardwired for 6 ethernet Jack's

It was very easy to push and trim the wire off. The dust cover ensures that the wires stay in place. I took a picture of the color coded connectors, enlarge the image and labeled each with the actual color of my Cat 6 cable to ensure all connectors match. Thanks for making it so easy!

Very simple to install, only tools needed were wire stripper and cutter.

use Diagram B for Home LAN
Worked fine. Instruction says "Diagram A for residential" and "Diagram B for commercial". I have no idea what it means. I tried A and it failed the check but B worked fine for my home LAN.

Works great, before we just had the wires pass through the floor, kids and pets would mess it up... now I have the cable and ethernet secured and out of the way

I really like these CAT6 connectors. I have all the colors. Several years ago I had the walls in my house open and ran CAT5e everywhere. Now I have a new garage/man cave going up and decided to run CAT6 for internet, TV, security cameras, controllers, etc. I also had to run an underground feed from the internet service/router in the house to the garage. Given I have a bunch of CAT jacks near my router in the house, having a jack in a different color lets me know immediately which one feeds the garage. Having a different color in the garage lets me quickly identify the incoming feed. So for example I can have cameras with blue jacks, the main feed in orange and normal internet connections in white. Colors are good! I find these jacks much improved over the older design. First the T568A/B wiring scheme is printed on the back of the jack which I find easier to read. Second the dust cover is designed so that the cable exits straight out from the back of the jack instead of the top or bottom. This means you don't have to untwist as much wire to complete your punch downs (better signal) and there is less strain on the jack/cable in the wall plate. The jacks come with their own punch down tool which is convenient - especially if your wife has a habit of putting away any tools you might leave lying around. One thing to bear in mind if that CAT6 uses a heavier gauge wire that CAT5, so be sure to use the jack that matches the cable.

Easy to punch down CAT-6 RJ45 jack. Snaps easily into face plate or biscuit box. For someone without tools, it comes with a plastic punch down tool. Color coded terminals for either T568A or T568B wiring schemes. Grey back cover snaps easily in place and secures the cable once dressed in place. Rated at up to 250-MHZ, CAT-6 standard. I had no trouble terminating the cable or snapping the jack into the keystone wall plate.

The Keystone CAT6 Jack appears to be well made. The package comes with a little Punch Down tool to press your wires into the jack’s connectors, a nice touch for a person who doesn’t have their own punch down tool and is doing a small amount of wiring. (Like maybe adding one wall jack) The Jack is a bit high priced, and if you are using 24AWG network cable, then this is NOT the Jack for you. The Home Depot web page does state that this is for 23AWG network cable. The instructions and packaging make no mention of this, but this Jack is designed for 23AWG cable only. Connecting this to 24AWG wire may result in connection failures. (23AWG wire is thicker than 24AWG wire). Know what gauge wire cable you are using before buying this Jack. You can see from the other reviews, that many have written reviews without knowing what gauge wire they are using. The printed instructions are confusing in that they show a wiring diagram for an “A” wiring connection. Most of the time for home computer networks you will use only the “B” wiring connection. The printed instructions refer to the “A” as Residential, and the “B” as Commercial. Because of the high price, confusing printed instructions, and 23AWG wire only, I cannot recommend this Jack for the novice DIY person who may not know what they are doing. This Jack is Made in China.
