RJ-45

RJ-45:
Used to connect cable to Routers, Switch and many other instruments used for networking etc.

Step to Crimp RJ-45.

Cut and Strip the cable

Insert the cable below the handle of the crimping tool (where you see a blade like structure ), then you press it hard to chop the cable, then Peel out the topmost layer of the cable therefore the wires would be seen exposed (remove the top most plastic cover ).

Untwist the cable

Untwist and straighten the set of smaller wires twisted together. the wires inside the cable. so they’re easier to rearrange wires and chop of plastic wire at the core of the cable so it’s arranged properly.

After

Arrange the wires

Arrange the wires into the proper order. Carefully put the wires in the appropriate color order so they will be properly crimped. These are the colour arrangement : "Orange and White, Orange, Green and White, Blue, Blue and White, Green, Brown and White, Brown".

Cut the wires equally

Hold the wires together with your thumb and index to hold them very firmly . Then, use the cutting blade of the crimping tool to chop them into an equally.

Note: The wires must be in an equal height and length to be crimped into the RJ-45 connector properly. If you did not cut them in an equally, move downward the wires and cut them again.

The RJ-45 connector inserted into a Router

Note: try removing the cable (to that without force) if it doesn't come out congrats you have successfully crimped a cable . If it comes out insert and crimp again.
