Below is a picture of the on-wall OTO (optic surface box, optic termination box) when it was once opened.
From here, a new, probably multi-core Pigtail FO be pulled in. This ends at the central www access with router, switch etc., in the basement.
One wire is plugged into the existing cable and leads to the splice box, but the other wire is only terminated at the splice box in the basement.
The other end of the second wire is loose and can be extended from there by means of a fibre optic patch cable to minimise IT gear in the flat, wherever it is located. If possible, as much as possible takes place flush-mounted.

What I am now looking for is a receptacle on which the existing wires can be wrapped around and the crimps can be held. The couplings should be in the middle and turned for 45 °. So, I hope, there is enough space for a gentle bend of the patch cable in the desired direction.

It seems there is nothing at the market. I only find equipment what is partly helpful:

Anyone, who has an idea, I can only think of 3D printing. Has anyone thought of anything like that?
There are fibre-optic Keystone modules with a plug-in socket, e.g. from or roline (, or screwable from e.g.
A receptacle for splice protection is also not that complicated.
I have already searched for 3D-prints but only this comes some near.
Is anyone here interested in the project?

p.s. the analogue cable will be history soon.
