In this video you will learn how to install, cable, and punch down a Cat5e Keystone Computer Jack. Keystone Computer Jacks come in a variety of colors and are available in Cat5e as well as Cat6 and Cat6A.

RJ45 Keystones are 8P8C (8 position 8 connection) jacks that can snap
into a faceplate so that an RJ45 mod plug can be plugged into them. They are punched down using a 110 blade on a punch down tool in either the A pattern or the B pattern. Either A or B pattern can be used as long as the pattern on one end of the cable matches the pattern on the opposite end of the cable, though the B pattern is most popular in commercial use.
