It doesn't bare thinking amount the number of RJ45 cables I have been through in the past. I use the RJ45 cables for connecting my laptop to the internet and so often one end of the cable is lying about whilst I am not online. This is the reason why I have been through such a vast number of cables. The problem is that with an ever more competitive market for these cables we find that suppliers have to cut costs any way possible. The result of this is that we end up with the majority of RJ45 cables coming with no protective boots on the ends of the connections. If like me you don't have a constant connection you will find that the connective tabs can easily snap off - especially when your cable gets tangled and you instinctively tug on it. I did find that at one point I would order at least one RJ45 patch cable which is not just an inconvenience, it can be very expensive too! At around £3 this cables To Go product is reasonably priced and long-lasting.

The beauty of the Cables To Go Cat6 Snagless Crossover Patch Cable is that it has a specially designed protective boot over the hard plastic connective tab, so you needn't worry about it snapping off anymore. If you shop wisely then you will find that there are various different designs of protective boot. I find that this particular one is not only very sturdy in comparison to a lot of the rubber boots out there, it is also more reliable in the long term. A lot of the other rubber boots simply slide onto the unprotected male connector and they are not as reliable as this particular design which has been built in to the male connector itself.

It is a simple yet effective solution to a problem that we will all face at some point - if we use RJ45 cables with no protective boots. You might not think that this is a big issue in your life, but for the sake of shopping around you can save yourself a lot of hassle by buying a better design of product. I have not had any problems with the cables To Go patch cables, and although this is a 0.5m cable they do sell them in various lengths and colours also. The cable is strong, covered in a thick plastic layer, and I have never had trouble with split cabling or anything like that. I am confident that this Cables To Go product will match up to any similarly priced RJ45 cables and next time you need to replace your cable due to the tab snapping off, look no further. The Cables To Go 0.5m Cat6 Snagless Crossover Patch Cable is available from Amazon and all other good electrical stockists.
