I bought 23 AWG CAT6 plugs with the sled and tray and it just seems as though there is physically not enough room for all the wires to fit. I've been at it for a couple hours and I have not crimped a single cable successfully.I can't get them in to fit.
I've done this with CAT5 and 5E countless times. I've never had this issue before.
Is this a thing known to happen? I know product recommendations are not allowed but is there a spec of plug I should be looking for.
For reference, here is a link to the cable I purchased:
PS: If this doesn't belong here, downvote to oblivion. I'll delete it.
