  • Patent number: 6603918
    Abstract: A fiber-optic cable routing and bend limiting device having a base with a top surface that defines a plane. A bend limiter and a mounting plate extend generally perpendicular to and away from the plane at opposite ends of the base. A separation bar also extends generally perpendicular to and away from the plane and is positioned between the bend limiter and mounting plate. The bend limiter has a generally arcuately-shaped surface and a generally planar surface that enables adjacent placement of two fiber-optic cable routing and bend limiting devices constructed in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. When two devices in accordance with the present invention are positioned adjacent each other with their respective planar surfaces confrontingly opposite each other, their respective arcuate surfaces define a generally continuous cable routing path between the two adjacently positioned devices.

  • Patent number: 6590978
    Abstract: A device for preventing the disengagement of a latch for a customer telephone bridge includes a cap having a base member and a projection extending outwardly from the base member. A mounting bracket is selectively positioned adjacent to a customer telephone bridge. A connector is provided for securing the cap to the mounting bracket. By positioning the mounting bracket adjacent to a customer telephone bridge the projection extending from the cap is inserted into an aperture in a customer telephone bridge for preventing disengagement of the latch of the customer telephone bridge. The projection extending from the cap includes an inclined surface wedged into an aperture in a customer telephone bridge. The mounting bracket is an elongated rod positioned adjacent to a first customer telephone bridge and extending along an array of customer telephone bridges for selectively preventing disengagement of a predetermined number of latches of the array of customer telephone bridges.

  • Patent number: 6552268
    Abstract: An insulation displacement connector (IDC) having a body and a cap pivotably connected thereto. A wire channel is defined through the pivotable cap and has an insertion opening and an exit opening that provide separate ingress and egress openings for the wire channel. An insulated wire may be inserted into the wire channel via the insertion opening, and may exit the wire channel via the exit opening. Similarly, any insulation separated from the wire during use of the IDC is not trapped in the wire channel, but may easily be cleared therefrom via either the insertion or exit opening.

  • Patent number: 6488317
    Abstract: A strain relief includes a main body having a bore therein for passage of a cable, wire, conduit, hose, or similar member therethrough. The main body includes a first section having male threads, and a second section including a plurality of cantilevered deflectable prongs extending therefrom. A plurality of slots are located between the prongs, and the prongs decrease in width extending toward distal ends of the prongs. A flexible elastomeric grommet is located within the bore and extends substantially along an entire length of the main body. The grommet includes a cylindrical sidewall and a plurality of spaced-apart annular ribs extending radially inwardly from the sidewall. A plurality of annular grooves are located between the annular ribs. The annular ribs have inside diameters which progressively increase along a length of the grommet in order to accommodate cables of various diameters therethrough.

  • Patent number: 6463203
    Abstract: A sealed assembly, includes a telecommunications enclosure having an inner rim with an upwardly facing tilted surface. The tilted surface of the enclosure has a tilt angle between about 30 degrees and about 60 degrees, preferably about 45 degrees. At least one, and preferably two, o-rings are provided. An end cap is shaped to fit the enclosure. The end cap has a groove. The groove has at least two sides for holding the o-ring in a position to contact the tilted surface of the rim, so that the o-ring is compressed between at least three surfaces when the end cap is in place on the enclosure. This construction forms a high-pressure seal between the rim and the end cap. The groove may include a curved surface for trapping the o-ring. Alternatively, the groove may include three flat surfaces instead of a flat surface and a curved surface.

  • Patent number: 6428061
    Abstract: A cabinet includes a base having a receptacle. A door is pivotally connected to the base. A fastener is mounted to the door. The fastener has a head and a tip. The fastener has an extended position, in which the tip of the fastener projects from the door towards the receptacle. The tip of the fastener is attachable to the receptacle. A spring biases the fastener towards a retracted position, in which the tip of the fastener does not project from the door. A guide may be mounted to the door, for slidably receiving and aligning the fastener. A pair of cup washers may be included between the head of the fastener and the door. A downwardly facing cup washer contains the spring, and an upwardly facing cup washer provides security by preventing the fastener from being manipulated by a standard socket or wrench.

  • Patent number: 6409179
    Abstract: A cable sealing arrangement is provided for limiting the ingress of fluid into a location about a cable, such as a telephone wire enclosure, which generally includes a fitting, a sealing member, and a nut. The cable sealing arrangement provides a fluid-proof seal about a cable through radial expansion of the sealing member. Also, various slitted sealing members are provided each leaving at least one slit formed there through which allows for forced displacement of portions of the sealing member and insertion of a cable thereto. The slitted sealing members obviate the need for threading a sealing member over the entire length of a cable.
