For improved cable management, Platinum says its new network jack design prevents unauthorized access, downtime, and tampering.

Platinum Tools, a specialist in products for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, announced that it will feature its patented EZ-DataLock Strain Relief design for locking cables during InfoComm15, to held in Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, from June 17 -19, .

“Safe and secure networks, large or small, in today’s world is top priority,” explains Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools, Inc. president and general manager. “Taking control of the network with our new EZ-DataLock Strain Relief is enabled by locking cables in place.

The EZ-DataLock strain reliefs are available in two sizes and work with Platinum Tools' EZ-RJ45 Cat 5e connectors, and all standard RJ45 (all brands including Platinum Tools) and Platinum Tools EZ-RJ45 Cat 6 connectors.
