New/old construction low voltage brackets

Now I'm finding RJ11 keystone jacks on the internet. I think Home Depot only had RJ45 when I checked. Anyway, I want a separate label for each keystone hole and I can't get that with more than two holes per plate. And Wikipedia says "Keystone wall plates are used in commercial and industrial buildings..." so I'm worried it could cause problems in an apartment if it needs to be replaced. I addressed this here. I'm trying to be tenant friendly.

Anyway, thanks for beginning to try to help.

I'd have to get an extra wide jack, whatever it's called, and put the phone plug in the center. That could be confusing, especially to a future tenant, and residential telephone repair people may not do keystone.
Not sure why you are making this so hard on yourself for.

Well, now I see they make the plate I originally wanted. Leviton 42080-4IP. And they have RJ11 Keystone jacks, so I may be changing my plans and going with a two gang low voltage bracket. I couldn't find these things before. I'm still a little worried about telephone repair people being able to fix keystone jacks. I'll look into that.

I'm making this hard on myself for the sake of future tenants. I wish the builders of this building did the same in the 1960s and installed coax jacks in the bedrooms.

Just a heads up, most people just have a cell phone now a days...
