Wondering, who's keystone jacks and Mod ends you're using these days. We have been using wire path, but after multiple issues we are making a change. We used to use Leviton and never had an issue.
Id also like to find a one piece mod end for cat6.

The only issue we’ve encountered is trying to match some of the Claro colors

For the data keystones, I only trust Leviton. The Cat6+ extreme is a solid certified product.
I don't trust the other (lowest price from China) products for this, no matter how much they 'say' their product is just as good. Anyone with 1/2 sense should know they themselves don't really know for sure. And even if someone did test a batch of those jacks properly ($10K Fluke DSX8000) and concluded they did what they said, there is no guarantee the next batch from their Chinese supplier will do the same.

For everything else, it is not as critical. Although I have never found the Wirepath keystones to actually be correct size. They don't exactly fit the keystone standard without much struggle. If you are using all Wirepath, then you wouldn't notice. But sense they don't make every keystone you need and performance on the Cat# ones is questionable, it is a problem.

I like the OnQ WP3456WH for high density speaker connections on decora plates, when needed.

Transitioning to Belden RevConnect, would dig around to find a distributor that can get you a hands on demo.

Thanks guys. Starting next week, its Belden RevConnect, and wire for every install. I'm done with cheap parts on our high end installs.

In broadcast we have been using Panduit. They are very high quality. I'll look into Belden too, since that is the only wire our industry would use.

No offense at all, but regardless of actual quality, Leviton is sold at Home Depot. No way we would install product you can buy at HD.

Wow that reconnect is very nice. Will definitely be looking into that. We will probably be using that for STP exclusively.

That's the low end Leviton at the big box stores. Extreme is only available at your distributors. Have had zero issues with them.

Our local HD ditched Leviton a couple years ago in favor of “CE”- total crap.
