Terminating CAT6 Cable with The Platinum Tools EZ-RJ PRO-HD

A friend was complaining recently about how working with CAT6 cable is a little more cumbersome than CAT5E has been. Part of that reason is due to the addtion of a cross web in the middle to help keep the pairs where they should be.

And if it's quality cable, the conductors themselves will be of a thicker gauge and might be more difficult to insert into the connector. I put together a video showing two different connector styles that can be used, the EZ-RJ45 and the traditional RJ-45.
