Fast, Reliable, & Efficient Termination with Cobra-Lock™
To help installers complete more projects and reduce rework, Hubbell Canada is pleased to announce a Category 6A UTP and premium Category 6 UTP jack with Cobra-Lock™™ termination.
Cobra-Lock™ Termination simplifies and streamlines installation, with no chance for tool misalignment. Wires are held in place under constant compression.
Requiring less know-how than traditional punch-down jacks, newly trained installers can be up and running quickly with no special tools needed. Instead, termination is completed by hand, with lower levels of force required as compared to other options. This provides a quicker, more repeatable termination process that reduces technician variability and the likelihood of human error.
Cobra-Lock™ utilizes a removable wire manager to orient and hold wires in place. The wires are cut flush with industry-standard flush cutters. Then, the wire manager is inserted into the rear of the jack. Cobra-Lock™ jaws are closed by hand and locked in place.
These jacks will co-exist alongside of Hubbell’s well established, high performance, and cost effective XCELERATOR™ punch-down style jacks, providing installers with choice in termination style.
Cobra-Lock™ ensures installers never have to worry about losing or forgetting the tools they need to perform their terminations. Cobra-Lock™ is quick and reliable, enabling contractors to start and complete more projects than with traditional termination techniques.
