    Default RJ45 glands

    I'm looking at waterproof RJ45 glands and see a few different types. Looks like it's mostly
    1) shielded vs non-shielded (I'm not too concerned about this, my cables will likely NOT be shielded, unless there's a reason they SHOULD be in this situation?) and
    2) the waterproof connector piece that the ethernet cable passes through is either large and has a split rubber grommet, to allow it to be used over an existing cable (with RJ45 already crimped)
    OR It's a smaller diameter piece where you need to create the ethernet cable with the gland already on. (You pass the ethernet cable through the gland, then crimp on the RJ45 connector)

    Is there a preference among those of you that have used these before?

    If you’re looking for a way to get the cable into an enclosure I just use a 90 degree elbow pointed down the RJ45 connector will pass through. Once the cable is through I stuff a few cotton balls in the hole. Keeps snow out and the cable is easily removable if I need to swap out cables. Been using it for years with no issues.
