RJ31x convert to RJ48x Jack The difference between an RJ48x Jack and an RJ31x Jack.

RJ31x convert to RJ48x Jack The difference between an RJ48x Jack and an RJ31x Jack.

(OP)
I just jump pin 8 to 2 on my RJ31x Jacks, when I run out of RJ48x jacks and I have extra RJ31x Jacks with me, since RJ48x jacks short 1 and 4 and 2 and 5, and RJ31x Jacks Short 1 and 4 and 5 and 8, by running a jumper wire to post 2 and then to post 8 you have essentially converted it to a RJ48x Jack for shorting purposes, and now 2 and 5 will short when you remove your patch cable on your RJ31x Jack. Anyone see a flaw in that concept?

Here is a discussion on it from a while back looks like some say yes and others say no.
thread575-1626007: RJ48x vs RJ31x

If it was me I would remove the jumper from pin 8 though.
