Platinum Tools EZ-DataLock strain relief prevents cable disconnects
By Anthony Capkun
February 27, 2013 – Platinum Tools—a provider of solutions for preparing, installing, hand terminating and testing wire and cable—launched the EZ-DataLock strain relief, which is designed to secure network cables from tampering. When locked, the cable will remain so until the ‘key-holder’ unlocks it. It also doubles as a snag-proof strain relief. EZ-DataLock strain reliefs are available in two sizes and work with Platinum’s EZ-RJ45 Cat 5e connectors, all standard RJ45 connectors, and Platinum EZ-RJ45 Cat 6 connectors. The reliefs include OD-Flex technology, which allows for range of cable OD sizes, are made with polycarbonate materials, and are UL, RoHS, CSA and CE compliant.
