How to remove Leviton Quickport from Faceplate

Is there a good/correct way to remove a Quickport from the Faceplate?  Specifically for a Cat5e.  I have reconfigured some wiring and need to remove a few and goto a smaller plate.  It seems that they fit in there so tight that it is about impossible to remove it without the little flex tab on top breaking or trashing the faceplate?!  Am I missing an easy technique here? Thanks very much for any help you can be in this matter!

There's no easy technique if the faceplate for your plug covers the flex tab on the connector to much to remove it. However if you have a paper clip or something else relatively small you might be able to push the flex tab down enough to remove the cable without breaking it.

I wouldn't worry about any kind of shock hazard as the voltage on any of those lines is barely enough that you would feel it if you pushed it to your tongue while energized.

I've connected both ends of a Cat5e cable using the GigaMax 5e snap-in connectors. At each end, I used the T568B wiring standard. Then, I connected my computer to one end of my cable assembly via a 3 ft...


It doesn't matter whether you use the 568A or 568B wiring as long as you use the same at both ends. (If you use A at one end and B at the other you wind up with a crossover cable, handy for some applications but not what you need.) The easiest way to check a cable is with a cable tester, and then all you need to do is look at LEDs to see any problems. You can also use an ohmmeter to check that each wire goes the right place, but it's more work.

When using insulation displacement connectors, be sure you're using a punch-down tool to seat the wires in the appropriate slots. You can use the plastic tool often supplied with these connectors, or you can get a better quality spring-loaded one at reasonable cost. Don't rely on the plastic "stuffer cap" since it sometimes doesn't push the wire down fully into the metal contacts. I often find a wire that looks seated, but isn't, is what is causing the trouble. Also, especially if the lighting's not good, it's easy to mix up wires. Punching to the 568A code at one end and B at the other is not a hard mistake to make.

I have wired (2) cat5e connectors using 568B and still seem to be getting collisions and no connectivity. I have re-wired these several times making sure I am the same on both sides. Any ideas?


I would make sure you have the wires pushed all of the way to the end so that it's reaching the metal connector at the tip. Often times there is a wire or two not reaching the very tip and therefor is not fully connected.

How do i terminate a panuit data jack 568A configuration


I haven't used Panduit specifically, but on almost every jack (leviton, on Q, ortronics) it actually shows the color codes on the side or bottom of the jack. They are usually marked for both A and B, so make sure you go by the color code marked A. Strip your cat 5, use an impact tool to punch the colored wires into the corresponding slots on the jack.

Cat5e Single Socket RJ45 Ethernet Network Face Plate


My preference is to use the T-568b if there is not already a standard where you are doing the installation at. The A and B are just different standards to terminate an ethernet cable.
TIA/EIA-568-A, T-568B RJ45 Wiring Standards

To answer your question..If you want a straight through connection you would use T-568B (or T-568A) at both ends of the cable.

Cat5e jack by leviton has eight slots, but my cat5 cable only has 4 wires in it. I punched the wires down on the back four connectors. As long as I do the same on my ends, this should work right? Please...


Cat5 has eight wires, anything less is for telephone. Your cabe is for telephone if it has 4 wires. Either return the cable and get 8-wire cat5 or go to another store for your cat5 wire.

Wiring cat 5 jack


If you're doing both ends, it doesn't matter. I tend to use "B" because if the other end is a patch panel, it natively (ie all wires in order) comes as a "B" panel. Less thinking on my part :-)

Dont know how to hook up cat5e cable to a leviton cat5e jack


Those two jacks are telephone jacks (RJ-11) not ethernet (RJ-45). The jack marked telephone is for a phone, and the jack with a rectangle symbol is for the telephone line into the wall.

You need to buy an ethernet PCI card - without one you can not use a cat5e line (which has an RJ45 connection).

Using patch panel fields and patch cables versus running cat5e and field crimping a modular RJ45 end


I would tell you what I think of your IT folks, but I don't want you to rate this response as IA :-)

Yeah, they have a point. Wiring point-to-point does cut down the chances for failure....provided they used the proper plugs and don't plan on moving them around. It gives them job security because you have to label each cable and when the tags fall off, only they know where the cables go. Plus, a structured cabling system give you, well, STRUCTURE. You're not at the mercy of the guy who "crimped" some imported 8-pin plug on a piece of wire. Wait were those solid or stranded wire plugs? It may run 10 Base T, but it is unlikely that it will run 1000 Base T.

A proper infrastructure contains a patch panel properly labeled and jacks at the computer end, with patch cords of various lengths to the computer and switch. We're a Leviton house, so the link is to their web site.

Just my opinion.
