3. Lay conductors into the punch down slots in the specified wiring sequence. Cable jacket removal should be minimized to the extent possible. Conductor untwist should be within 1/2" (12.7mm) of termination. For best performance when terminating cable on connecting hardware, the cable pair twists should be maintained as close as possible to the point of termination.

Punch down the conductors using a punch down tool on HIGH setting. ALIGN TOOL WITH BLOCK.
Prior to dressing cable, snap retention caps on as shown above. For DP12688TP ONLY: After termination is complete, install on 89D bracket.
