Wired Home WHIRE-KJ 3.5mm 2-Conductor / Mono Keystone Jack
Wired Home WHIRE-KJ 3.5mm 2-Conductor / Mono Keystone Jack is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from No IR; Only two wireThere is no documentation with the item or available at the web site. I found that, while the jack is a three wire TRS capable jack with insertion interrupt switches, the jack is soldered into a circuit board in such a way as to permit only a two wire TS configuration.There is no sign of an IR emitter in either the jack (which has a clear cover) or in the only other parts, the wire connectors. Those two wire connectors have what appears to be push to clamp wire closures but pushing on the apparent clamping mechanism only breaks apart the wire clamp. Instead, it is a catching mechanism similar to the back wire on newer outlets. It is suitable only for solid wire and does not work well with stranded or tinned stranded wire.I was able to adapt the item by removing the wire terminal clamps and soldering the two wires of my cable to the circuit board for a monophonic mini-3.5 MM jack.None of this was apparent from the product description.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great solution for terminating IR cables on platesI have used a bunch of these to provide connections for IR flashers on keystone wallplates behind TV's. They fit in the Leviton plates just fine, and they are 2-conductor, so they mate properly with Xantech and other flashers, which often don't work if connected with stereo 3c jacks.One caveat- it's a bit tricky getting Cat5 cable properly seated in these push-on terminals- make sure you "pull-test" both leads to make sure the spring has a good grip on the wires!

Wired Home WHIRE-KJ 3.5mm 2-Conductor / Mono Keystone Jack

Is this jack equivalent to a 3/32" jack, or is it a standard 1/8" (3.5mm) size?
