This shielded Cat5e RJ45 modular connector is designed to terminate stranded Cat5e network cable. The connector contains two metal "teeth" that hold the wire in place giving a reliable connection. Easy to terminate, these connectors are useful for creating custom-length patch cables from bulk cable. The pinout for these connectors can be either TIA/EIA 568 or 568B.

They are not.
This connector is actually Cat5e only.
The barbs in the connector, which pierces the individual cable conductors, are in a straight line.
The barbs should be staggered for Cat6 use (Cat6 barb ends are at different heights; every other barb is higher.)
For Cat6, there also is a 2nd plastic piece that helps route the conductors to the correct staggered barbs.
This will be important, only if the equipment you are connecting, are rated for Cat6.
You probably won't meet spec, if these connectors are used..
If you are running a Cat5 or 5e network, then this should not be an issue.
Also, it does reference in the description: 'RJ45 Stranded Modular Connectors'.
This means that you should be using this connector for Cat5e cable that has stranded wire conductors.
Which usually means patch cords only. (solid wire conductors require a different style barb)
Normally, solid wire conductors are used for in-wall use only. (which means jacks).
The connectors make it really easier to attach cable. If you splice the wire and hold it in your hand these connectors will slip right over the wire and keep them in place. It made me really confident in running the cable through my house. I have had no connection issues yet!
I used these with Cable Matters® In-Wall Rated (CM) Cat6 Ethernet Cable and they technically crimp on fine and will pass data fine. But in no port, from my router to the RJ45 test kit, to my PC motherboard or even a wall jack, will they 'snap' securely in place. So if you move something, or a pet walks over/under a cable, you can (and usually do) lose connection. There's alot of play with these connectors when plugged into any port, and you can pull one out without pushing on the tab.
They're extremely cheap but I you get what you pay for. They aren't broken or defective, they are just poorly made and will have you checking whether your cable is still plugged into the port whenever you close connection. Typically with RJ45 cables, they clip securely in place so you don't need to wiggle cables. But that isn't the case with these C&E Crimp Connectors.
I'm not saying these are perfect, and they don't seem to be fully Cat6 spec, but they can and do work for Cat6 (or Cat5e) Gigabit Ethernet. I wouldn't trust them on a 10GBASE-T network, but if you've already shelled out the cash for 10GBASE-T equipment, you're probably not going to buy these anyway.
A quick note, when making these connectors, you will need the crimping tool I listed below (very inexpensive), and once you strip the outer shell of your CAT 6 cable, the wires inside go into this piece. They are in a specific order, that info comes with the items or is available all over the internet. Strip off approx 2" of outer shell, untwist the wires, line them up closely together, cut approx 1/2" off to make each of the 8 wires the same length, and insert them into this connector. Once you look to see that every wire made the trip (the connectors built to funnel the wires down to the holes) crimp it tight and it is ready for testing and use. There is NO need to strip each of the 8 wires insode the cable outer jacket, which is a real blessing when making dozens of these, with the very delicate wires.
This CAT 6 (cable https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CH42O1A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) may not be the "Top of the line" cable on the street as some have stated, and I am not sure if it is copper throughout or not, but it IS insulated, and it IS easy to work with, and I only wasted about 2 feet of the reel trying to learn how to do everything delicately and correctly.. What I AM sure of, is this is easy to work with when utilizing the male and female connectors (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IO3HEN6) and (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BS92DCA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) available here on Amazon, along with inexpensive wall mounts/covers, (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0072JVU8S/ref=od_aui_detailpages01?ie=UTF8&psc=1), and the crimping tool (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0055EXMII/ref=od_aui_detailpages01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) Do yourself a favor and purchase the cable tester as well and test your cables every time you complete one, you won't be sorry (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000P1OA1O/ref=od_aui_detailpages01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and it will keep you from pulling out your hair trying to figure out which line you ran through the three walls is failing. Might as well buy some blank covers if you will only use one wall connection at a time, or just purchase single covers. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006IKH0EA/ref=od_aui_detailpages02?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I bought the doubles because I want the availability to expand later as the world becomes more and more electronically oriented.
I completed almost the entire house (3317 sq ft two story home) with one box of 250', but I am purchasing another reel and will run another line to my video security system which will allow me to view live video feed online, and another line out to my hot rod garage for services there. Might even hook up one in each bedroom so the kids can plug their laptops in for greater speed while in there.
I am using two inexpensive switches (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001EVGIYG/ref=od_aui_detailpages01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) available here on Amazon as well, so really only two MAIN Cat 6 lines (one to each switch located on each floor of our two story), and then lines out to everything else from the switch This allows maximum flexibility throughout the home, while reducing the amount of cable needed to get to everything.
Now the bottom line. Our new phone and internet provider offers fiber optic lines straight to the modem. They offer 80 GBPS hard wire guaranteed, and 20+ mbps Wifi. We are getting 84+ Gbps utilizing the parts and wires I have listed above. SO, if solid copper is a desire for you, or any other more expensive upgrade to what I listed, then go for it. For us folks who are on a fixed budget, but still wanting to have quality high speed internet with the availability to expand later, then this is the way to go. You will be one happy camper as my family is once they can stream Netflx, videos, music, and all the other junk they love to watch on line so much, with ZERO interference, tiling or lagging.
IMPORTANT NOTE--- If you going to use CAT 6 cable, then use CAT 6 EVERYTHING. Make your own cables from the switches to your equipment, from the wall to the switches, and switches to the modem (and don't forget the modem to the wall). If you use CAT 5 your signal is going to suffer, and your future expansion capability will be reduced as well.
Last note, I am a retired Sailor. I had ZERO experience prior to installing this stuff on any form of wiring a LAN system, making and routing the wires, or making the actual connections for the male and female fittings. I learned VERY quickly, take your time, utilize your tools, and keep the wires in the right order when making your plugs. The crimping tool allows you to strip out the outer shell covering, to get to the wires inside that WILL NOT NEED to be individually stripped utilizing the items I have listed.
Good luck out there, and if you have any questions for pointers, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will tell you what I know.
God Bless America!!
