How do you go about choosing the right connector for your cable? There are a few subtle differences in appearance and function between the solid and the stranded connectors that are easy to miss.
Solid: Longer, staggered connectors straddle the conductor Only work with a solid Cat5e cable
Stranded: Pointed, shallow connectors pierce jacket and connect to strands Only work with a stranded Cat5e cable Need to make contact with each strand
