Understanding and Utilizing RJ11

In this video we talk about the RJ (Registered Jack) 11 jack and its uses. RJ11 stands for registered jack and was originally designed by phone companies in the 70’s and is used for analog voice lines. It is a single pair jack, a jack with 2 wires. It is typical to find RJ11s with 6 positions, which are the metallic pins on the underside of a phone jack. To make a RJ11 a mod plug, crimper, and cable is needed. Slide one pair, two wires, into the mod plug so that they line up with the two center pins which are the first position. Place the mod plug with the cable in it into a crimper and close it down on the mod plug. This will cause the pins that were previously slightly raised to crimp down on the wire, cutting through the wire housing and creating a connection.
