Product details

Telephone Plug Kit

A telephone plug kit for fixing modular BT style connectors to flat telephone type cable. The kit contains two modular plugs and a tool die to enable the plugs to be crimped on firmly.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product simply doesn't work. With no instructions provided, I spoke to a helpful technical department and followed their advice to the letter. However, my initial assessment that this product wouldn't do the job proved to be right. There are no separate channels for the wires so it is all a mickey mouse. Unsurprisingly neither plug worked. My advice to any prospective purchasers is save your money, time and humour.. don't buy this product. My advice to Maplin would be to withdraw products that are not fit for purpose and to stock NTE 2005 faceplates instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful - Complete waste of Money I too found the cable line up for the plugs was a guessing game as the guides inside don't separate the cables well plus the tool that comes with them is completely useless it doesn't push the pins down enough. I manually pushed the pins down with a knife and got 2 out of 4 contacts working but surprise surprise they were in the wrong order. Waste of time spend the extra money and buy the clear ones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Does not work blind guess when you line the cables, used both included in the kit without success. Waste of money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother There has to be an easier way of rewiring these plugs. Yes, i wasted both plugs in my attempt.

I need to replace a broken BT telephone plug. Would BD41U product allow me to do so. If so, how? Please explain how the metal die type item included with two plugs within this kit is used? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
yes it will be suitable the die fits over the plug and the teeth make contact with the gold terminals on the plug,you then push down on the two with a pair of pliers.

These are the BT style plugs, If your device has the input for a one of these then it will be ok.

Do the wires have to be bared first, or does the crimping tool cut through the insulation ?
Asked by: Anonymous
