* Strip the cable of its protective outside jacket about 3-6 inches from the end. This can be done with the cabling scissors by applying pressure from the scissors to the cable and rotating the scissors around the cable. After you have punctured the cables jacket, you should be able pull the jacket off easily leaving exposed wires.
* Expose the wire a little further. Stripping the cable can cut and damage the wires at the area that we cut the cable so we ...view middle of the document...
* If your cable has the small string. Cut the string after you have enough exposed cable.
* Untwist the wires completely to the jacket. Place the wires into the appropriate color slot on the jack. Make sure to place the wires as tightly as possible in the slots in regards to the jacket. There should be as little exposed and untwisted wire as possible to keep the signal strength as high as possible. Make sure to place the White/Blue in the White/Blue spot and not the solid Blue spot. The White/Color wire is not the same as the solid color.
* Terminate each wire. After all the wires are in the correct spot and double checked to make sure as little amount of exposed wires will be left as possible, use the punch down tool with the 110 blade and terminate each wire individually. The 110 blade will fully cover the wire connector on the jack. Push down until the tool clicks and cuts the end of the wire off. Repeat this step if the wire was not fully cut.
* Use a cable tester to assure that you correctly terminated all the wires. You will need to have terminated both sides of the cable to be able to test. Cable testers function differently depending on make and model so be sure to read the instructions of the tester you are going to use.
