RJ45 Port Lock Helps Prevent Accidental Disconnection and Expensive Downtime
Having a patch cable come loose accidentally can mean the loss of a network signal or a security breach that could lead to costly downtime. The N2LOCK-010-YW helps you avoid interruptions in your Gigabit Ethernet network or digital signage system by maintaining a secure link without failure. A locking RJ45 connection is also invaluable when moving equipment within a rack or removing equipment from tight areas, ensuring the cable always stays connected. This package includes 10 yellow RJ45 plug locks.
Easy to Install or Remove in Just a Few Seconds
This RJ45 lock secures a plug to most types of RJ45 jacks in a patch panel, wall plate or switch to prevent unauthorized removal of a patch cord or other compatible network equipment. Just remove the plastic latch on top of the plug using a cutting tool, slide the N2LOCK-010-YW onto the plug, and insert the newly affixed connector into the desired RJ45 jack. You’ll hear a click to confirm the connector has locked into place. To remove the cable, use the Tripp Lite N2LOCK-KEY-RD security key (sold separately).
Color-Coded to Avoid Misidentification That Can Lead to a Costly Dropped Signal
Yellow color-coding allows easy, fast identification in a crowded rack or patch panel and helps prevent the cable from becoming inadvertently removed. The lock’s compact design doesn’t interfere with adjacent RJ45 jacks, even in high-density applications.
