A fairly major design flaw exists with this product. The connections are IDC - however, there is no support under the circuit board where the IDC connections are. So if you use your punchdown tool to connect the wires then after a couple of connections the corner of the circuit board breaks off rendering the socket useless. Other sockets I've used have a supporting bit of plastic under the IDC connector to take the strain of the punchdown tool.
If you've already bought one of these sockets then I recommend you push one of the supplied screws under the IDC block while you make the connections which will hopefully stop the corner of the board breaking off!
