When we moved into our home, we had the builder include data and power in certain locations so we could wall mount a TV and not have any wires showing. Unfortunately the way they went about installing the data outlets was a head scratcher. Originally (see first picture) we had to connect a CAT 5e cable from the blue jack to the brown jack which was roughly 18" above the floor. Then we had to connect another CAT 5e cable from the brown jack that is up high so it could be plugged into the TV.
I went to Home Depot and purchased the tool and a CAT 5e in-line coupling. Then I took the lower blue jack and brown jack out of the wall, used this tool to put an RJ45 on each of them then connected them with the in-line coupling. After that, I tucked them away behind the wall. Now the upper jack behind the TV was live and no wires are sticking out anywhere.
This was my first time doing anything with data wire but watching YouTube videos and the instructions that comes with the tool made it very straight forward.
This tool does not do everything it states to do. Yes it strips outer jacket of ethernet cable, and crimps ends. However it does not cut off the excess wire coming out of the pass through connectors. I did some research after I was having this issue, and it appears that the tool does in fact trim some excess wires but believe it or not it does not do that for the actual Klein pass thru ends that they sell in home depot stores. Yes you read that right the Klein tool doesn't work with the klein ends. I'm usually and advocate for Klein tools and love every other Klein tool I ever have had, but this item miss the target by a mile. Wish I would've went with a different option because without the trim function on this tool it basically makes it worthless to me.
