Can patch panels be reused. If they are reused do they degrade the quality of a connection?

Providing the guy who fitted it originally had the right blade in the krone tool, yes! any degradation of the teeth on the back of the panel and dont risk it, in a corporate enviroment, but if its for home then go for it, lay your hands on a cable tester - with a remote unit, that way you can test the connections.

Im running three patch panels at home that are all "rescued" I wouldnt be overly cautious a quick inspection of it will tell you if its usable.

Sure they can be reused.
As for quality degradation - I'd say - perhaps, eventually, but should be a long time out...

I figured for sure I would get slapped for asking this. I figured that once they were used they could not be reused. I will wait 1 hour to see if anyone disagrees with your answer. If no one disagrees the points are yours.

Thanks
