General Description

These RJ45 Keystone Jacks provide an excellent method of bringingnetwork connections into any room. They fit into any standard keystone jack wall plate. Installation is easy and requires no special tools. For those not familiar with "toolless" jacks, the mechanism on the rear of the jack hinges up to allow wires to be inserted, then hinges back down to firmly seat the wires into their connections. A plastic "key" is included to lock themechanism in place once all wires have been seated. Wire color codes are included on the jack to assist in following the standard wiring scheme (T568B is common in the USA).

These jacks are white in color.

The jacks are labeled for both T568A and T568B wiringschemes. In the USA, T568B is very common. If you use T568B, the wire colors are connected to the pins as shown below:

RJ45 Pin Wire Color Stripe Signal
1 White Orange TX+
2 Orange White TX-
3 White Green RX+
4 Blue White unused
5 White Blue unused
6 Green White RX-
7 White Brown unused
8 Brown White unused

The wires with corresponding colors (e.g. white with orange stripe and orange with white stripe) are twisted in the network cabling and should remain twisted as much as possible when terminating the cable at a jack.To facilitate this, the jack brings the connections out with the paired wires adjacent to each other.

Installation Instructions

  1. Strip back the outer jacket on the CAT5(e) cable (around 3/4" to 1" is typical) and separate the four wire pairs.
  2. Open the plastic clamp on the keystone jack and insert one pair according to the colors shown on the jack (568B colors in the USA). Which pair you do first does not matter, although it generally works best to work from one end to the other. Insert the wires at approximately a 45° angle, trying to insert as close to the plastic clamp hinge as possible.
  3. Close the plastic clamp (this forces the wires down into the insulation displacement prongs) to connect that pair of wires.
  4. For each remaining pair, reopen the plastic clamp, insert, and close. Do not try to clamp all wires at once.
  5. When all wires are clamped in, insert the key lock behind the plastic clamp to secure it closed.
