The Platinum Tools 105016 Snag-Proof EZ CAT5e Strain Relief (Bag of 500) is designed specifically to be crimped with EZ-RJ45 Connectors (sold separately). The primary strain relief of the plug locks the snag-proof strain relief in place so that it does not pull off, creating a single integral assembly. Once crimped, this design allows the plug’s primary strain relief to relax slightly, preventing the cable pairs from being over-compressed. This decrease in stress contributes to achieving peak performance. The tab on the strain relief is designed to extend over the plug’s locking tab, making it snag-proof when administering patch cords. Electrical performance of the termination is optimized by maintaining the bend radius of the cable exiting the rear of the connector as per Category 6 requirements.
- Prolong patch cord life
- Maintain bend radiuses required for standard compliance
- Terminations have a professional finished look; achieve the look of a commercially molded patch cord with a field termination
- No more snags or hang ups that cause tangled messes
- Easier to unlock the connector when unplugging from jack / port
- UL and RoHS compliant
