Ideal 85-379 CAT5e RJ-45 and Strain Relief Boots - 15/Pack

Strain relief boots can be used when a new patch cable is being made. The boots need to be placed onto the cable before both connector ends are terminated. The boots help to protect the modular plug body, especially the latch tab, from external handling damage. The strain relief feature on the boots helps to maintain the cable bend radius and limits conductor movement inside of the connector that can lead to continuity failures over time.

 

Prevents broken connector tabs and snagging while extending connector life

Minimizes cable bends that can reduce data speed and result in data loss

Dampens cable movement and vibrations that can result in premature connector failure

Sized for Cat 5e and smaller diameter Cat 6 twisted pair cables

Fits industry standard RJ-45 8P8C connectors

5.5mm diameter cable opening

 

Instructions

 

1. Slide boot on the end of an unterminated Cat 5e/6 cable. At least one end of the cable needs to be unterminated.

2. Install and terminateRJ-45 connector per connector instructions.

3. Slide the boot over the back of connector so connector tab is partially covered by the hood dome of the boot.

4. Boots are reusable if cable is disassembled.
