Now Shipping, Patented Design Prevents Both Inadvertent and Malicious Cable Disconnects, Providing 24/7 Data Network Protection and Security

NEWBURY PARK, Calif., July 21, 2015 - Platinum Tools(R) (, the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable, is proud to announce the EZ-DataLock Locking Strain Reliefs are now part of the Platinum Tools' line of EZ-RJ45® network solutions. EZ-DataLock Locking Strain Reliefs are now shipping.

"Safe and secure networks, large or small, in today's world are top priority, and our EZ-DataLock Strain Reliefs allow the IT/Network manager to lock network cables and take additional control of the network," said John Phillips, Platinum Tools product manager. "EZ-DataLock should be used as a locking strain relief for cables that are not to be disconnected. When locked, they will remain so until the ‘KeyHolder' unlocks it. Our EZ-DataLock Snag-proof Strain Reliefs are available in two sizes and work with Platinum Tools EZ-RJ45® Cat5e and Cat6 connectors, and all standard RJ45 (all brands including Platinum Tools)."

EZ-RJ45®, "The World's Easiest Twisted Pair Termination System", simplifies twisted pair terminations by allowing the wires to be inserted through the connector and out the front, to easily verify the proper wiring order. Platinum Tools' EZ-RJ45 solutions feature connectors, accessories, and tools for unparalleled performance and reliability, including:
• EZ-RJ45® Cat5e/6: solid or stranded and shielded connectors
• EZ-RJPRO HD Crimp Tool: uses the EZRJ45® patented ‘crimp & trim'
• EZ-RJPRO Termination Pod: everything for consistent, repeatable terminations
