Right, this is overkill for most hobby applications, but it will hold up longer than just tape. It does seal the ends of the cable jacket which is a good thing, moisture can easily wick a long way into the cable. You can also do the plastic tube thing without the grease, but where's the fun in that?

"simply plug a patch cord into either end and screw together."

"Cut the connectors off the two patch cords. Thread the 2x cat 5 through the nuts and rubber seals and install new RJ45's. Plug into each end of the connector and screw together"

FTFY

I believe so, 1 wire of the same colour from each cable, then squeeze, no need for removing plastic either...

Exactly  :D Try to use a big pair of pliers or a vice so that you get a straight squeeze and the colored bit doesn't go in at an angle.
