66 Block - Telephone Wiring Block & Accessories


A 66 block (or M1-50) is a type of punchdown block used to connect sets of wires in a telephone system. 66 blocks are designed to terminate 22 through 26 AWG solid copper wire. Discount-Low-Voltage.com carries a complete line of 66 blocks, prewired 66 blocks, and 66 block accessories. In today's video, we take a look at the 66 block and a few of the 66 block accessories we have available. Enjoy









Here is a picture a customer sent us of a recent job he did.



Notice how clean everything looks due to the use of backboards and spools. In my opinion, every 66 block install should be done this way. Take a look at How NOT to install 66 blocks and some crazy data center wiring pictures. Have some pictures of a job you recently did? Or a job site you went to that looked like a mess? Send them to k.atkins@discount-low-voltage.com and we'll feature them in our next blog or add them to the website.
