HDMI cables aren’t exactly the most resilient connector in the cable world as they are easily knocked loose meaning you will spend many minutes of your life plugging a cable back into your device over and over again.  For some, they don’t really care, but for others, that’s where the locking HDMI cable by PPC comes in.  Built specifically for the home video enthusiast who needs a strong and reliable yet good quality cable, the World’s FIRST Locking HDMI cable by PPC will surely suit your needs.  Come inside for a jam packed gallery as well as my initial impressions.

For the sake of not having to type “PPC Locking HDMI cable” every time I mention the cable as well as not just giving it a general name such as “cable”, I will sometimes refer to the PPC Locking HDMI cable as “The Lock”.  From the moment I pulled the Lock out of its plastic sarcophagus I noticed the relatively attractive appearance and lizard like feel.  It honestly feels like they took scales and wrapped the cables in them, pretty cool!

I know you’re thinking, “Who cares what it looks like, I just want it to give me the best picture possible”.  There’s no doubt that it will deliver stunning images, however the designers took that extra bit of time to make the cable visually attractive as well.  Appearance is a big thing if those cables will be visible at all snaking through your living room.  The “Flex Jacket”, the name for the black mesh like wrapping and underlying cable material allow the locking HDMI cable to bend and twist around whatever obstacles you may have in you home theater set up while still staying resilient and providing the best picture possible.

Installation of the “The Lock” is really a lack thereof.  There isn’t any “installation” required.  You just plug in the cable like you would any other cable and you’re set, ready to enjoy full and pristine 1080p HD goodness!  The Locking HDMI cable does exactly what its name suggest and holds tight to your electronic equipment making accidental fall outs a thing of the past.  Now don’t be worried that if the dog (or you) happen to trip on the cable that it will rip half of your equipment off of the wall.  PPC’s cable is strong, but at the same time designed to break away if pressure is too great as to prevent the more minor “oops” moments from turning into much more serious “I just knocked $3k worth of A/V equipment off of my tower.  How am I going to explain why I took our sons college fund….” moments.  As you can see in the picture below, the cable is easily removed by pushing the little tab so cleverly called “Push”.

The tab operated release not only protects your equipment as a whole from keeping it from being yanked off of where it is you keep it, but it also protects the ports themselves ensuring that nothing gets bent or destroyed.  Those loyal HD enthusiasts who have been using HDMI for several years and have older generations of HDMI spec ports can let loose a big sigh of relief as PPC’s HDMI cable is fully backwards compatible with the older spec’d ports ensuring that HD enthusiasts of young and not so young can take advantage of this fine piece of connector technology.  Below is a video showing the stresses the cable can withstand and ultimately breaking loose when the pressure is too great as to not damage the cable or the TV.

The quality of picture produced by the 100% foil covered and braided shielding inside this cable is simply amazing.  I would post a picture or video of said picture, however I would not be able to fully capture the ocular eye candy that I am seeing.  You will just have to see it for yourself in person as a picture just can’t contain it.

If you are in the market for a high quality HDMI cable that will deliver the best in 1080p picture as well as having the ability to stay put when needed thanks to it’s innovative flex jacket, yet break loose when dad forgets to pick up his feet and trips over the cord, PPC has you covered.  Whatever length you need PPC has a length to suit your needs as the locking HDMI cable comes in 3ft, 6ft, and 10ft lengths and rings in at $48.99, $59.99, and $72.99 respectively.  For a limited time only, you can receive free shipping on HDMI cables ordered directly from connect2PPC.com.  If you would like to purchase PPC’S Locking HDMI cable or simply want more information, stop by PPC’s webiste and pick up your Locking HDMI cable today!
