I want to know what is the correct name for the connector below as I have bought face plates but they didn't have these connectors with them so I want to purchase them.

I can't find out where to get them as I don't know what they are called or what to search for.

Cat5 connector

Thanks. How do I snap this module into the face plate? – PriestVallon Aug 23 '12 at 15:18
Push it in from the rear. – RedGrittyBrick Aug 23 '12 at 15:20
And is it possible to snap it back out again after? – PriestVallon Aug 23 '12 at 15:22
Removal depends on specific make and model of faceplate, but generally yes. There's a latch you can lever upwards. – RedGrittyBrick Aug 23 '12 at 15:24

That part is called a rj45 wall jack
