Easy Lock

Easy Lock is an SC type fiber adapter with the addition of a flexible retaining element on top of its surface edge. With this solution, unwanted disconnection of the standard SC connector is not possible, unless a tool or a particular release maneuver is applied.
This new adapter is mainly intended when optical fibers are handled by end users, but can be used also in situations where security problems are important (MDF in the central offices, closed-connect cabinets, termination boxes,…), as it guarantees full compatibility with IEC 61754-4 SC connectors.

How to use Easy Lock

1The connection is made in the same way as with traditional SC adapters: the flexible retaining clip is automatically raised when the SC connector is inserted

2When fully inserted, the SC connector is a locked in place by the flexible clip, thus preventing any accidental disconnection

3The disconnection can be carried out by raising the flexible clip, using an external tool, and at the same time pulling back the body of the SC connector
