hd EZ lock, LLC created the original HDMI Cable Universal Locking Adapter, the patented hd EZ lock.
HDMI cables were designed with a friction connection that can be easily plugged into the HDMI port. The HDMI specification does not include any way to secure HDMI cables in place, and many HDMI cables are much larger and heavier than the design called for.
This has caused frustration for many HDMI users because these larger cables can cause issues with the HDMI connection:
- the weight of a heavy HDMI cable can place enough pressure on a delicate HDMI input, causing internal damage resulting in expensive repairs
- heavy HDMI cables can cause intermittent connection issues, resulting in intermittent signal loss (lost video or audio, picture and sound cuts out intermittently)
- heavy HDMI cables can work themselves loose and come completely disconnected.
After working in the consumer electronics industry for 15 years and seeing these issues come up again and again, Tony Eppright, founder of hd EZ lock, LLC invented hd EZ lock, the worlds first Universal HDMI Locking Adapter.
hd EZ lock works with most HDMI Cables and components on the market for home and commercial use, locking the HDMI cable in place and eliminating stress on the HDMI input. The result is you can install your HDMI cable, lock it in place with hd EZ lock and forget about it knowing that these issues are gone.
hd EZ lock is a winner of the 2009 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase Award, has been featured in magazines such as Stereophile, Home Theater Magazine, Engadget, CE Pro, What HiFi Sound and Vision, Gizmodo, Electronic House and more.
