I bought a flat cat6 cable a while back, It promptly got chopped into 2 and now I'm left with a 2 half cables. I bought another cable, which is now in use. I do however have 50 meters of cable. I also have a crimper and know how to use it.

What I do not have is any RJ45 connectors or boots. I would like to order a few (50 or 100) and then make use of my chopped up cable.

What I would like to do is get some boots that are made for the flat cable rather than have poorly-fitting square peg (cable) in a round hole scenario.

Any recommendations about where I could order/buy flat-cable RJ45 / boots would be welcome. I live in BC, Canada. (Online ordering with delivery would be prefereable)

Just some quick googeling, and I found https://www.amazon.com/Cat-Ethernet-Cable-White-Flat/dp/B018BCJKE0/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=flat+ethernet+cable&qid=1622627191&s=electronics&sr=1-1-spons&psc=1&smid=A17K4O9J62HKE5&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzNTE3MzE4QzNONFRKJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwOTQzMzc2M1BWS0ZHQzZKNlRCWCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMzYwODU2M0RTREhKV003SDBPTCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= (sorry for the long link...) It's flat, It's CAT6, and it looks like it is what you need

  • Hey there, thanks for the effort, but I'm not sure if you read the question properly, or if I did not ask it will enough. Either way, I'm not looking for the cable. I'm looking for the end bits (the RJ-45 connectors that go with the flat cable... And the boots that go with the connectors.)

  • I think the end bits are standard built into the cable or it's the ethernet card in your computer...

  • Yes, when you buy a flat cable like the one you linked, they come as a all-in-one unit. Please re-read my question. In the first sentence, it explains why I want the connectors and boots. You get them for round cables (amazon.ca/VCELINK-Shielded-Modular-Ethernet-Connector/dp/…), I want them for the flat cables.
