Sorry - it was my mistake.
I have previously bought a product like the ones you have listed
there. Unfortuantely it didn't work.
I erroniously thought it was the difference between the UK and US
wiring standards. I have since discovered that in the UK, between the
receiver of a telephone and the base unit, or from the wall to the
base unit, we also use an RJ11, albeit perhaps with a different
My problem is that at work we use the INDeX telephone system, with
special INDeX handsets manufactured by people like Lucent and Avaya.
These are standards compliant and look broadly the same regardless of
We all use DT3 handsets at work which are a type of INDeX handset.
My problem is that the curly cords they come with, which get horribly
knotted such that I want to replace them with something retractible,
don't use a standard RJ11 socket. They do use one from the phone's
base unit to the RJ45 floor socket, but they don't between the base
unit and the receiver.
They have something very similar but that is a couple of milimetres
smaller than a typical RJ11.
I don't suppose they make retractible cords for this. I have no idea
what kind of standard it uses or the name of the type of jack used.
Sorry to have misinformed you originally. If you can't answer the
question now, or don't want to, that's fine. There's probably no
answer to give in any case.
So that's what the deal is. Many thanks for the effort,
