A four-minute video available on YouTube and on the website of cabling-product manufacturer Excel shows the hands-on process of terminating a shielded twisted-pair cable to Excel's tool-less Category 6A jack.

While the jack is dubbed "tool-less," that really means it requires no punchdown/termination tooling. Everyday cable tools such as a cutter for the outer jacket and snips for the foil shielding are used during the termination process.
