Power Cords Latch High-Current Environments

Protecting against accidental power disconnection, the V-Lock cord retaining system provides an attractive and simple solution for 10A and 16A appliance couplers and power entry modules as per IEC 60320. It latches into the notched inlet or outlet to prevent accidental disconnection. Its yellow catch mechanism is released by simply depressing the lever. No additional hardware is required to install the cord retaining system, saving installation time and material. Additionally, standard inlets, outlets, power entry modules, and a wide range of mating V-lock cordsets are available. Pricing for the standard V-Lock appliance inlets start at about $ 1.49 each/100.
