RJ45 Clip Broken on SM/AP/BH

What are other people doing with their SM’s etc when the RJ45 connection has a broken clip and will not hold the ethernet connection for that device.


We solder new one.

resoldering possible and working?

I’ve only had this happen on a few pieces of equipment - all we did was tape up the cable where it enters the weatherproofing cover, and cable tie it above and below. Seems to work okay as long as you have some strain relief on the cable.

Has anyone found the RJ-45 jack part.
I can figure out how to do the rework, but need a source for the part.

Try mouser.com. You should be able to find about anything there.


I made the two I have into bench test units.

I have find 1 new BH with ethernet solder out…
