Kramer introduces K-Lock connector

Kramer is to release its K-Lock connector, a pull-resistant connector that provides up to 15lbs (6.8kg) of retaining force.

The unit is equipped with small springs on the surface of the connector that hold the cable tightly in place.

The company developed the product to combat the tendency of lower gauge (thicker) cables to weigh down the cable connector and pull it out of the socket. The company says the slightest tension can result in signal loss, and when it comes to longer distances, the chances for signal loss are even higher.
