Blank Keystone Patch Panel

Unanswered Question
Jan 14th, 2010

We need some new patch panels at my company. I am thinking about going with blank keystone patch panels (ex. http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-BLANKPATCH24-24port-Blank-Keystone/dp/B00066HS44/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1263479274&sr=1-2).

The fact that they are modular and you can re-order your terminations fairly easily seems like a big plus. We have had a lot of additional drops through the years, and my current patch panel port terminations are not very contiguous.

Does anyone use these panels? Do the jacks stay securely inserted?

I have this problem too.

What I would like to know, is if anyone has used a blank patch panel in which you snap in keystone jacks. I like the idea because it makes moving the jacks around rather easy, but I wasn't sure how well the overall design works.
