Where can I find a female RJ45 connector that can be crimped to another cable rather than being soldered to a PCB or installed in a wall or plastic enclosure?

Something like this: http://www.pcpartscollection.com/rjcrmatofeca.html

While we're at it, I'd love to find female RJ11 and RJ12 connectors with the same property.

@msutherl I wouldn't exactly call what you found in the local electronics store a crimp connector. Technically that would be a punch down connection. This wouldn't have the same strain resistance that true crimped on connector would have.

One solution is a female-to-female coupler:

Found this at my local electronics store. RJ45 female on one side, crimps on the other. Now, online?
