How to create a cable This lesson gives participants step by step instructions in creating a CAT6 cable, from stripping the outer layers to exposing the inner middle core. It is important to make sure all the cables are the same length by cutting off the end. An RJ45 connector has different channelings you must insert and different wirings coordinate to different channels and it's important to make sure they all meet at the end. Finally, use a crimping tool to crimp down the cable which clicks things in place inside the connector head.
