RJ-45 fun

Thursday 12th August 2010

It had been some time (several years) since I have used a crimping tool to stick RJ-45 connectors on the end of cables for ethernet, and I couldn't understand why they worked (i.e. connected) but wouldn't stay in the sockets (didn't click and lock).

The answer is simple but I destroyed quite a few connectors before I realised: don't press too hard.
