Great plugs

Pros: Quantity and price.

Cons: None

As some people have mentioned, they can be a little tricky to assemble, but after one or two it gets easier.

Pros: the product just works

ordering the product was almost hassle-free and it came with what it said is contained in the package.
I wish they will include the picture of the "insert" that goes with the plug

Good Plugs...not sure what all the fuss is about

Pros: Cat6
Have staggered (stacked) wires for correct Cat6 spec
Less expensive than other options

Cons: Can't just slip them on the end of a cut wire

Bought a pack of these plugs to do my first Cat6 runs not using pre-made cables. Was a little hesitant to purchase after all the complaining reviews. Didn't want to buy a new crimp tool to use the pass through type connectors. I haven't terminated many of these yet, but I am 4 for 4 on the connection I have performed (which is a little better than my average results using my same crimp tool and some other Cat5 plugs in the recent past.

These are easy if you follow these steps:
(Optional depending on application: Slip on strain relief boot)
1. Score and split cable jacket about 1.5-2 inches from end
2. Separate wire pairs (I just fold down each pair at this point into an X shape when looking at the wire head on)
3. Cut the core and stripper string
4. Untwist pairs and organize according to desired spec
5. Flatten group as much as possible and trim all wires to an even length (about an inch is plenty)
6. Feed wires through guide insert with the little notch facing up and towards the cable jacket and check proper order
7. Pull insert as close to the end of the cable jacket as possible (I even twist extra wire together to make a tight bundle)
8. Angle the guide "down" a little if you are still holding it with the notch facing up (this makes insertion into the plug easier)
9. Trim all excess wire at the very edge of the guide insert
10. Slide plug onto insert/cable with the clip facing down (I found it necessary to pinch the casing a little to help it feed into the plug and rotate a few degrees it it sticks...not too much or you may alter the alignment of your insert)
11. Push cable into plug until the insert is fully seated in its position (look through the side of the plug to view the position)
12. Use crimp tool to complete connection
13. Lightly tug on plug and cable to ensure tight connection (don't yank on it, after all, I hope your real connections don't get that kind of abuse!)
(Optional: LIGHTLY pull up on retaining clip to get it back to a correct position. My crimp tool, and a lot of others, flattens this clip out and it will not lock into a socket correctly until adjusted back into position. This is not plug specific and my crimp tool does it with all of them)
14. Terminate other end with plug or patch panel
15. Test cable to desired specs
(Optional: Slide strain relief boot into position)

Entire process didn't take me (a novice with basic tools) long to get into the groove and should only take a few minutes per termination with a little practice. Some of the reviews with loose wires, moving wires inside the plug, connections that fail when the wire is wiggled, etc. may have been using Cat5 or stranded cable which these plugs are NOT designed for. Use the correct cable (in my case Monoprice Cat6 23AWG Solid CMR Product 8102) and your results should be good. I will probably be buying these plugs again when we start a major re-cabling project (over 9,000 feet of cable and around 100 runs).

Do not buy this product! Buy the CAT 5e plugs instead

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Extremely frustrating!!! The video attached is for the CAT 5e plugs not the CAT 6.

I do not know how many work hours I have wasted trying to get a correct connection when trying to use these. Once you slide the separate jacket on the wires (which is put on before the wires go in the plug) and then slide it into plug, there is still a big chance that the wires will miss the connectors because THEY CAN STILL MOVE INSIDE THE PLUG! That means even though it may appear to be perfectly aligned, the cables can move at any point before you crimp the wire which could mean a bad wire.

I wasted so much time with these because I did not know any better or that there were other options out there, so I guess shame on me. But still don't make the same mistake that I did. Buy the CAT 5e plugs. They work just as well and the process is exactly what is shown the video above. Maybe one day Monoprice will change the video...

Thank you for your review and my apologies for the inconvenient experience faced with PID 7266. Regarding the video, the installation would be the same for both Cat5e and Cat6. The main difference here is that the plug in the video does not include the inserts. However, if needed, we have a guide here that goes over the steps of using plugs with inserts:

Truly sorry again for any trouble this may have caused and I hope this helps. Should you need any assistance with our products, please feel free to contact our tech support team via live chat, phone, or email.

Hate 'em!

Pros: None

Cons: Difficult to use

It's like trying to tie your shoes with one hand. I'm just happy I didn't get a migraine after trying to use one of these. Maybe I'm old school or just old, but give me a regular ole plug without any new-fangled redesign. I cut my cables the same length every time by the way it fits in my fingers, so the jacket is in the plug without having to use some crutch to do it "correctly". I'm sorry, I'm sure I could re-learn how I terminate cables, but why? I actually ordered these accidentally, because I tried one a few years ago too. Uuugh!
