    Note that the width of the RJ45 keystones is such that two cannot be used side-by-side in the same wall-plate.

    Comes with lever for ease of installation and retaining clip for secure connection.

    Tooless Vs. Tool
    Tooless jacks appear to be a perfect solution to the novice, the cautious or the frugal. However, they tend to be more difficult to line up and surprisingly tough to squeeze shut (despite the included lever). If you don't mind a very small learning curve regarding the punch down tool, you will find a cleaner, easier, and faster solution with tool jacks.

    Works perfectly fine, but mind the width
    I am tempted to rate this down a bit, but I hesitate as the problems I faced were of my own doing...

    I bought several of these keystone jacks, in various colors, to help organize my office and move my networking/servers into the closet. The units themselves work perfectly. They seem to be made of quality parts, and unlike other wall jacks I have worked with, are constructed quite well.

    The problem I had (or have, as the case may be) is that they are too wide to fit in the wall plates that have more than 3 ports, like the Leviton Decora 4-hole or 8-hole wall plates. They snap in just fine, but the body of the jack is so wide the neighboring jack does not clear it. Its mere centimeters off, mind you, but non-the-less these will not work.

    For the rest of the house, at most I was putting in 3 or less connections in each, and these work perfectly fine for the 1, 2, and 3-hole plates, since the jack holes are spaced vertically as apposed to next to each other.

    So, as long as you don't have the need to marry these into the same wall plate with 2 other jacks, you are in business.

    Watch the video first!
    I was also concerned about the mixed reviews so I googled for keyless jack installation and came across a youtube video that clearly shows how this jack should be wired! Once you understand the trick then wiring the jack is quick and easy.

    Summing up to help others:

    * Open the lid of the jack all the way.

    * Remove about 1-2 inches of the outer jacket of the cable.

    * Push all the pairs through the hole in the lid from outside inwards.

    * Carefully separate each pair and push each wire into the plastic slot on the lid, there are plastic guides so that each wire is straight. The color code for each wire is printed on the outside the guide so you know which wire goes in which slot.

    * once you have all eight wires secured in the lid, then snap the body of the jack down on the lid until it clicks.

    Hope this helps!



    PROS: Once you see how it is intended to be used, installation is a snap.

    CONS: No installation instructions!

    Not worth it.
    Yes, the are tool less, but

    1) The don't come with even basic instructions.
    2) If you have large hands, good luck with these.
    3) It failed to properly cut the insulation on my wires, which means that I had to redo them.
    4) when you open it back up, it pulls all the connections apart again.
    5) They are incomparable with punchdown tools, so even if you want to use one to make sure it's seated, you can't.
    6) One of them broke when I tried to close it.
    7) After about 15-20 minutes messing around with one of these, my friend who runs network cables for a living went to his car, got his TOOLED one & punchdown and had it working in less than a minute.

    Look at the PDF!
    These work great. There is a PDF showing the proper way to use these. It's linked in the description field.
    It indicates that you should place the wires in the lid, and then close it.
    This is important. The PDF has full-color pictures. Check it out!

    PROS: Good design
    Good fit in 2x modular jack

    CONS: No cons.

    junk - avoid at all costs
    I've read the instructions, followed them to the letter, and not a single connector has worked. My cable tester typically shows that 4 or more wires have no connectivity at all. Very disappointed.

    I have never had a single problem with any punch down connector, and I've wired thousands.

    PROS: None

    CONS: simply doesn't work

    Easy install, more or less
    I bought these to use existing CAT5E phone lines in my home for a wired network. Installation was easy once I went back and reviewed the instructions on the product page. I changed out 6 phone jacks with these keystones and had no problems with any of them.

    PROS: Simple installation, no tools required. Worked first try.

    CONS: It can be a little difficult to route each of the wires into their slots. If you have large hands, it might be difficult.

    Large, beware!
    Ok, well these jacks I have to say are the easiest I have EVER used as far as getting the wires in there securely and quickly.

    They have 1 major flaw though, and that is that the back side of the keystone jacks are about 2mm too wide on each side. In single gang applications where the keystone holes are the standard width apart, it is not an issue, HOWEVER. On a "decorator style" 4 or 6 quick port single gang wall plate, you CANNOT fit two network ports side by side.

    Difficult to get these to make contact
    I bought four of these for a cable run in my home with Cat5e bulk cable, and I had a very difficult time getting them to make good contact. With the wires in place, I could get the connector closed and snapped, but I couldn't get ethernet devices to connect over the cable runs. I tried squeezing the connectors closed with pliers to no avail. I eventually opened the connectors partially and forced each wire down into the contact teeth with a small screwdriver and snapped the door closed. After that, they all worked, but I spent at least an hour troubleshooting and fiddling with four connectors.

    In the future, I'm going to stick to the tried-and-true 110-series punchdown connectors and spend $20 for a decent tool.

    PROS: Inexpensive

    CONS: Difficult to crimp

    CONS: Tooless
