Not sure why people have 5 star reviews for this type. It snaps in but it is very hard to get it out as the snap pin is too short and the boot also blocks even a skinny finger from getting into the gap to un-snap the pin. This is going back. I have many bootless cables and they have held up fine. What is the purpose of the intrusive boot? The snap -pin isnt long anyway to protect it. I prefer the open, zeroboot type.
Needed a longer CAT5 cable to wrap behind and around a closet frame between a router and a wall powerline ethernet adapter. Awesome price and I always know I get the best quality with a Monoprice cable. Thoroughly satisfied customer.
