Strain relief boots can be used when a new patch cable is being made. The boots need to be placed onto the cable before both connector ends are terminated. The boots help to protect the modular plug body, especially the latch tab, from external handling damage. The strain relief feature on the boots helps to maintain the cable bend radius and limits conductor movement inside of the connector that can lead to continuity failures over time.
