NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Sept. 9, 2015 - Platinum Tools(R) (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce it will feature the EZ-DataLock™ Strain Relief during CEDIA Expo 2015, held in Dallas from Oct. 15-17 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, booth # 6606. Designed to secure network cables from tampering, the EZ-DataLock is now shipping.


"Safe and secure networks, large or small, in today's world is top priority," explained Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools, Inc. president and general manager. "Our new EZ-DataLock Strain Relief has been designed to protect and secure a data network 24/7 by locking cables in place that are not to be disconnected. When locked, the cable will remain so until the ‘Key-Holder' unlocks it. It also doubles as a snag-proof strain relief."

Added Sachs, "The Platinum Tools EZ-DataLock Strain Relief's patented design prevents cable disconnects, malicious disconnects, unauthorized access, downtime, and tampering in numerous applications, such as in data, commercial and professional, military, medical centers, monitoring devices, financial, transit, government, and manufacturing centers and institutions."

EZ-DataLock Strain Reliefs are available in two sizes and work with Platinum Tools EZ-RJ45® Cat5e connectors, and all standard RJ45 (all brands including Platinum Tools) and Platinum Tools EZ-RJ45 Cat6 connectors.
