Locking power cords are an ideal solution for securing the power supply to important electrical equipment, such as servers and computers. Locking connectors reduce the probability of accidentally disconnecting cords and causing power to be cut from vital components.
Locking data center power cords are an essential part of any data center safety plan. You certainly don't want anyone accessing important information stored on your data network.

Locking power cords are a great option for securing the power supply to important electrical equipment such as servers and computers. You can keep your devices secure and stable with help from Cables.com.
