No Mike... your thinking like an installer!! I don't have bulk cat6 cable. I don't want a punch down!! I have one complete cat6 cable with ends already on it manufactured by LEGRAND and purchased from LOWES. I am 6 inch's short of my connection. to my smart TV, so I bought another 3' cat6 LEGRAND cable from LOWES complete with ends already on it. Lowes doesn't carry anything to connect the ends together, by just plugging into the two ends of ????.... What can you suggest, I buy?? and no I can't rerun the original cat6 cable to gain the 6 inches...
