Solid Nose Handset Cord UnTwister™


 

Solid Nose Handset Cord UnTwister™

 


If you don't remember to unwind your handset cord once in a while and it turns into a knotted mess, get one of these to do it automatically!

This only works in handsets where the jack isn't recessed into the plastic shell.
 

NOTE:  We've tried similar products from all of the factories in Asia, and this is the only one that actually spins so the cord will stay untwisted, and it doesn't have static right out of the box.
 

It won't work in a handset like this one with a recessed jack:

            

                  The nose just isn't long enough!

 


 

Our Solid Nose Handset Cord UnTwister™ will work with any phone handset without a recessed jack.
 

NOTE:  This is not like the cheap white ones on the market that don't spin (so they're useless!).

Modular Handset Cords are wired so the ends are Reversed


Modular Handset Cords are wired so the ends are REVERSED!

Black is on the LEFT on the top plug, and on the RIGHT on the
bottom plug on the other end of the handset cord



Bell Labs made the decision way back when that the order of the wires in each modular connection should be reversed.

That means that the order of the pins in the mod jack in the phone is in the reverse order of the mod jack on the handset. I don't know why?

Flat Telephone Handset Coiled Cord often has a seam running down just one side of the cord to help with the orientation of the plugs as they're installed. Sometimes the individual wires in the flat cord aren't colored at all, or there's just one colored wire.

Modular Handset Cords are wired so the ends are Reversed





When held with the clips down, you can see that Black is on the right on
one end of the cord, and Red on the other.








In special applications the plugs may be put on so black or red is on the same side at each end. That's referred to as a Straight Through (Straight-Thru) cord (not reversed).

In the old days when all the phones had carbon transmitters the polarity of the handset didn't matter. Today, 99% of the phones have electret transmitters which contain a transistor so they're polarity sensitive. If you somehow get a straight-thru handset cord on a phone with an electret transmitter that needs a regular reversed handset cord, there will be 'no-transmit.'

7 FOOT STRAIGHT MODULAR HANDSET CORD

7 Foot Straight Handset Cord7 Foot Straight Handset Cord

7 Foot Straight Handset Cord (not coiled).

Specially made with handset sized (smaller) modular plugs, to plug into the smaller handset sized jack. This is technically called a 4P4C plug, with the jack sometimes referred to as an RJ-9 or RJ-22.

Put the spare pair from a station cable on our Handset Biscuit Jack, and send the audio to a central Voice Logger from our Handset Recording Adapter to that jack on the wall, using this Straight Handset Cord.

This cord is wired Standard (Reversed).

Using a cord with the smaller plugs prevents the phone from being plugged into the special jack for the Voice Logger, by mistake.

The TRUTH about Modular Telephone Cords...

         You Won't Believe it!

Modular Line Cords are wired so the ends are Reversed


Modular Line Cords are wired so the ends are REVERSED!

Black is on the RIGHT on the top plug, and on the LEFT on the
bottom plug on the other end of the cord



Bell Labs made the decision way back when that the order of the wires in each modular connection should be reversed.

That means that the order of the pins in the mod jack on the wall is in the reverse order of the mod jack on the back of the telephone.

Why? I have no idea but the guys at Bell Labs were the smartest guys around so they must have had a reason at the time.

Flat Telephone Line Cord often has a seam running down just one side of the cord to help with the orientation of the plugs as they're installed. Sometimes the individual wires in the flat cord aren't colored at all, or there's just one colored wire.

Modular Line Cords are wired so the ends are Reversed





When held with the clips down, you can see that Yellow is on the right on
one end of the cord, and Black on the other.








In special applications the plugs may be put on so black or yellow is on the same side at each end. That's referred to as a Straight Through (Straight-Thru) cord (not reversed).

But Wait...

When Bell Labs came out with the 8 Conductor Modular Mounting Cords for the Horizon PBX (and later the Merlin) they decided to make the line cords Straight Through, not Reversed.

That's carried through to today's Modular Ethernet Networking Cords:

Ethernet Data Cords are wired so the ends are Straight Through



The wires are lined up the same from left to right on both ends of an Ethernet Cable.




Ethernet Data Cords are wired so the ends are Straight Through



Brown/White is on the same side on the Mod Plugs on each end of the cord.

World's Best Modular 6-8 Pin Crimp Tool - Ratcheting

 

Ratcheting Crimp Tool Doesn't Release Until Crimp is Complete

 

Does 6 Pin (RJ-11 Type 2-4-6) & 8 Pin (RJ-45 Type) Mod Plugs

 

 

We've tried all the others and this is the only one we can depend on!

Heavy duty metal construction with comfortable hand grips.

The secret is the floating crimper pins which are designed to ALWAYS stay parallel  to the pins in the plug! Most crimpers start crimping on an angle at one side of the plug - causing the pins to sometimes get cocked.

We put a lot of modular plugs on all kinds of solid wire and flat custom cables in our production department.

We are so confident in these crimp tools that we've made our own Heavy Duty Crimpers using these tools to reduce hand strain for our production workers (we use three of them in our shop).

We remove the hand grips and drill and tap one of the handles on the tool to mount it to the custom arbor press.

We replace the actual Crimp Tool, which is the same one we stock and you can buy here, about once a year. They do eventually just plain wear out!

(Sorry, we don't sell these Heavy Duty Crimpers)

I used to use an expensive AMP crimper that uses expensive replaceable dies which ONLY work with AMP brand plugs (which are hard to find). If someone crimped a regular mod plug (not AMP brand) in the tool, the pins on the soft pot metal die would get bent over and the die would be destroyed.

After throwing away my AMP crimp tool with the replaceable dies I've never had a problem with mod plugs! This is the most dependable crimper you can buy, and does 6 position plugs (2,4 or 6 pins) and  8 position plugs (does not do handset plugs - see our Handset Crimper below).

Suitable for flat silver satin cord and solid wire cable. Includes cutter and stripper for flat wire.

Strips Correct Amount of Jacket from Round Wire for an RJ45 8 Pin Type Plug!

Use a Scissors Not Dikes to Cut the Cable so the wires have a nice flat end that you can see through the clear connector to make sure they are all the way in.

You'll probably need to cut it flat with scissors after arranging the wires in order, before you insert the wires into the plug.

I find it easier to strip quite a bit of jacket off, arrange the wires, then cut it flat to the correct length with scissors before inserting the wires in the plug.

Modular Plugs for Flat and Round Wire

On most plugs for Solid Wire, the bottom half of the rectangle where you insert the cable is rounded - like a half moon (not all manufacturers do this, but the ones we carry do). Never use a modular plug with a rectangular entrance on solid wire, since it's only make for stranded or tinsel wire.

 


Solid Wire Plugs
are made to work on the round solid copper wires that are used insides the walls, and they also work on Stranded/Flat Wire.

It's often faster to crimp a modular plug plug onto the end of the cable that's going to plug into the equipment, rather than put up a jack and use a flat cord to connect to the equipment.

Stranded Wire Plugs are used on flat handset and base cords, which have tinsel or stranded wire. Tinsel wire is a bunch of copper clad ribbons, which is quite flexible compared to stranded or solid copper wire.

Stranded Wire Plugs won't work on solid wire because the points on the pins just put dimples into the tops of the solid copper wire. The pins work their way up and give you an intermittent connection almost immediately. They don't cut into the sides of the wire like plugs made for solid wire do.

Solid Wire Plugs dig into the sizes of copper wire, making a gas tight connection. A gas tight connection means that air can't get between the wire and the metal used for the IDC (Insulation Displacement Connection) terminal, causing oxidation and an eventual intermittent connection.

You will really be sorry if you use flat type stranded plugs on solid copper wire!

They cause hard to find intermittent problems that will cost you more in service calls than you made on the job in the first place... to say nothing of the really upset customer.

If you put the wrong plugs on the cable, the only fix is to go back and crimp the correct plugs on the cable!
