Structured Wiring Product of the Year: Quest Technology Cat6 LocJack Keystone Security Jacks Locking Keystone Security Jacks Securing Voice and Data Protection Quest Technology now offers a new patented technology for the securing of both data and voice using standard patch cables and our award winning LocJack keystone security jacks. This innovative technology is available in RJ45 (Cat5E & Cat6) and RJ12 (Cat3) versions and requires nothing more than a LocJack keystone security jack and its proprietary security key. This keystone jack is designed with a high-density slim-style profile for use in all standard and high-density keystone style wall plates, surface mount boxes and patch panels. The locking and port-blocker features are built into each individual jack providing a secure fastening of the patch cord from accidentally or intentionally being removed or inserted by unauthorized personnel. For home installations, it is ideal for use in securing wiring of security cameras; for securing cables to the outlet so children do not accidently remove the cables; and for avoiding inadvertent connections into the wrong outlets. LocJack does not require special cables and is the most effective way to secure network cables fast. All that is required for installation and removal of the patch cable to the keystone security jack is the two-sided LocJack Security Key.
