Wiring RJ45 Ethernet Socket to free wire end

I've wired ethernet sockets to Ethernet sockets a few times before and it's simple, just use wiring diagram A at both ends and all is good

However this time I'm wiring Ethernet Socket to a standard RJ45 end as there is no point having a socket under the stairs where they're all going to plug in to a switch anyway

Can anyone advise if I need to crossover in this config (since the plug will 'reverse' as it enters the socket? Or do anything else weird?

No crossover needed, just use A on both ends and you'll be fine!

Thanks!

Just to confirm, that's A running left to right as I look at the Rj45 metal pins (opposite side to the clip)?

Yes - plug like this

Can anyone remind me, on the plates how much do I need to push the wires in? I used my push down tool but the connection doesn't seem to look too tight. Should I give it a few pushes?
