    Hi,

    Can anyone please let me know the block size that the phone wires are pushed into by an IDC tool for a BT wall socket? I have seen references to sizes such as 66 and 110/88 blocks and just wish to make sure that the IDC tool I have is the right one for the job of relocating a BT wall socket.

    66 is American phone wiring

    110 is American phone and Cat 5 (etc) wiring

    Krone is UK phone and European Cat 5 (etc) wiring

    You need to use the correct tool for the termination which in the UK will be Krone.

    Owain,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I think that I have the right tool as it is a Krone push down tool for IDC connections.
