Technical Note: These shielded Cat 6A Jacks are extremely easy and quick to install. We wrote these instructions in many steps so as to give our customers a very detailed assembly instruction. Most users will have no trouble installing this jack in two minutes or less.




1. Skin the cable about 2 inches back. If you are using our E-Z UTP stripper tool on a very thick wire like Cat 6 shielded, you can adjust the cutting depth by putting a rubber band on the handle to reduce the cutting pressure.


2. Gently bend the cable's jacket back and forth to free it and remove that portion of the jacket.


3. Gently bend the foil back over the end of the cable's jacket. The foil may be brittle and crack off completely. If this happens, you can try re-skinning the insulation. If you still can't prevent the foil from cracking off, the alternate method is to use three to four inches of the drain wire to build up the required thickness for the ground clamp to grasp (* see step 5 below)


4. Cut the foil about ¼" back and bend it around the diameter of the jacket. The foil will not cover the entire jacket. That is normal and not a problem.


5. Take the drain wire and wrap it around the foil.

* If you do not have any foil due to it cracking off, then use more drain wire (three to four inches) to circle the end of the cable's jacket.


6. Bend back the four pairs and cut the center spline. It is not necessary to get a completely flush cut as attempting to do so may damage the conductors.


7. Slide the metallic shield over the cable with the open end facing the end of the cable. Slide it several inches back as to make room for the termination of the cable to the jack.


8. Follow the color code that is on the side of the jack. Take note that the Orange and Green pairs are shown in alternate positions for 568-A or 568-B wiring. Choosing "A" or "B" will not be of any consequence so long as you do them all the same. If you are unsure which one to use, we suggest using the "B" method as it is more commonly used.


9. Prepare to terminate the pairs by positioning the end of the skinned jacket very close to the back end of the jack. This is important for two reasons:

a) Less skinned wires exposed equals less crosstalk and better performance, and

b) this will make it possible for the ground clamp to grasp the drain wire and / or foil that is wrapped around the end of the cable (in step 12 below)


10. Position each twisted pair in the slots where they will be terminated. Untwist the cable's pairs in such a way as they will be twisted all the way up to the point of termination.

TECH TIP: Use a thin device such as a utility knife blade to push the wires down into the slots just far enough where they will hold in place long enough for you to terminate them. Use light pressure as not to damage the wire's insulation or the "110" termination slots inside.


11. Double check the wiring sequence and then use a "110" termination tool to terminate the wires. Be sure to:

a) Position the tool's blade to cut the excess wire on the outside end of the jack and

b) Press down somewhat firmly as to push the wire all the way down into each slot making the connection.


12. Once all of the wires are terminated, make the shield connection by slipping the ground strip into the locking groove.


13. Use a pair of pliers to pull the ground strip all the way until it grabs the drain wire (and / or foil). Wrap the remainder of the ground strip around itself.


14. Secure the plastic cap over the terminations.


15. Slide the metallic shield over the jack all the way up until it locks in place. Once the other end of the cable is terminated, test the cable from end to end with a cable tester. Be sure that all eight conductors plus the ground have proper connection.
