Connector Protection

Clear Protective Tube

The default protection option for all STAGGERED tail options is a clear protective tube.

Here the connectors are housed within a removable and reusable clear plastic tube to offer maximum protection when not in use. The tube is held in place by a threaded nut and offers good pulling retention.  If you have more than 4 connectors, you may wish to consider the SOCK option for ease of use – please see information box to the right for further information.

Padded Protective Sock

The zipped padded sock option has a wider internal diameter so can accommodate STRAIGHT (equal length) connector tails. When you select ‘Breakout – STRAIGHT’, the sock is automatically added.  Note, this is a more expensive option than the tubes.

The sock is quick and easy to use. Once unzipped it can be slid back to reveal the connectors but stays attached to the cable, therefore it does not get mislaid.  It also works well when you have multiple STAGGERED connectors, which can be fiddly to get back into the tube after use.  If you select ‘Breakout – STAGGERED’, then you can add the Padded Protective Sock to your basket as an additional item and we will build your cable assembly with this, instead of a clear protective tube.
