Brand NEW and UNIQUE AUTO-LOCK™ System for IEC

May 03, 2013 - "New Product Release"

For years, Networking and Medical Professionals have strived to find solutions for cable retention.  Advanced Information Technology has always required connectivity and advocated new methods of preventing unintentional disconnection.  Quail Electronics is pleased to introduce a new and exciting solution to power electrical connection: the IEC AUTO-LOCK™!

The Auto-Lock™ is an internal retention mechanism that actually hooks to the pins of power supply inlets and resists any axial force unless the Auto-Lock™ mechanism is released!  Tremendous amounts of force cannot get the electrical connector to budge, but as soon as the IEC Auto-Lock™ mechanism is manually deactivated, the connector slips easily out of the inlet.

With a unique patented locking mechanism on the connector side, fastening and unlocking your cord is just one pull away. After inserting the connector end into your device, it is safely secure. Try to pull on the cord and you won't be able to disconnect it. When you want to remove the cord, simply pull simultaneously on the red sliding tabs and voila!

Have you ever disconnected a power cord by accident? Do you wish there were a simple solution to locking a cable into place without having to deals with specific inlets or tons of hardware? Do you have sensitive electronics that require uninterruptible electrical continuity?  Does your business rely on information systems that must not be unplugged?  Look no further, the Auto-Lock™ solves all those problems. Let Quail Electronics provide you with the most innovative power cord solution of the 21st century. The Auto-Lock™ is simply the best solution for IEC Locking.
