A keystone module for a CAT5 network cable

A 3-port keystone wall plate

A keystone module is a standardized snap-in package for mounting a variety of low-voltage electrical jacks or optical connectors into a keystone wall plate, face plate, surface-mount box, or a patch panel.

Keystone modules have a rectangular face of 14.5 mm wide by 16.0 mm high and are held in place with flexible tabs. This allows them to be snapped into a mounting plate with correspondingly-sized rectangular holes, called ports. All keystones, regardless of the type of jack they carry, are interchangeable and replaceable. This provides much flexibility in arranging and mounting many different types of electrical jacks in one plate or panel without requiring customized manufacturing.

Some keystones use a pass-through type connector, where there is a jack on both the front face as well as the rear side. Others only have a jack on the front and employ a different mechanism for...

A cat5e wall jack is a piece of telecommunications equipment used to terminate Ethernet wiring on wall outlets and patch panels with removable jack modules. It is used to interconnect devices by acting as an extension of the cat5e Ethernet cable. By being able to interconnect devices, those devices can then communicate with each other and form a network. The jack is made of plastic with metal contacts, with a depth of approximately 3.7cm, and a height and width of approximately 1.25cm. The cat5e wall jack consists of two major parts, which are the distinct ends: (a) the end for terminating the cat5e Ethernet cable wiring in either EIA/TIA 568A or 568B standard, and (b) the end for connecting the device facing Ethernet cable with an RJ45 8P8C modular connector.

Before you start you need to know and have a few things. First, you need to have a wire cutter or something to trim the wires, and a screwdriver that matches the wall faceplate. Second, you will need to purchase a...

OK. Today I am replacing some telephone jacks. Switching them to white here. These are really low voltage so the voltage is not really a concern. What you do want to do is mimic your colors on your deals.

Telephone lines come in paired wires. At least the newer ones do. The older wires were read and green and yellow and black would be a pair. So that's what I will be mimicking today. The red and green. Hooks up to this one my particular yeah it's green and that's red. Red, green, yellow, and black. The same way that it is so that's nice and easy. I have a lot of mine where it was wired...
