  • Good 6P4C connectors

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Cheap, yet very fine 6P4C RJ14 connctors for crimping when cabling telephone-type installations, e.g. phone, DSL, and even some chargers.

    Fits nicely in sockets (female connector), making good contact.

    Cons:

    Not really

    OtherThoughts:

    These connectors are for use with stranded wire. 24AWG wire fits nicely. You'll need a Cable Crimping Tool for mounting the connectors.

    I needed some 6P6C as well, and I tried to modify one of these by moving two contact points from another connector. While moving the contact points is fairly easy, the connector walls blocks wires from entering the outer contact point canals so it is not possible to use these as 6P6C connectors.

    The upside of this is that it makes mounting these as 6P4C very easy - wires easily slide into the 4 available contact canals.

    If you're careful, it can be used as a 6P2C connector.

    Bottomline:

    Buy these if you need 6P4C connectors for making or repairing stranded wire cables. If you can wait for delivery, of course:)
