Utility supplies: Platinum Tools®, a provider of solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable, will feature EZ-DataLock Locking Strain Reliefs at OSP Expo 2015, held in Denver from September 2-3 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth #102. Now shipping and designed to secure network cables from tampering, the EZ-DataLock Locking Strain Reliefs are also now part of the Platinum Tools’ line of EZ-RJ45® network solutions.

“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, thus, 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, and all standard RJ45 connectors (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’
