V-Lock Power Cords are used with APC AP8000 series PDUs to lock the C14 or C20 Plug into the PDUs C13 or C19 outlet receptacle. This creates a secure connection between the power cord and the PDU, ensuring they do not become accidentally disconnected, which may have serious consequences when powering electrical appliances. The V-Lock also has a locking connector, allowing it to securely lock into the device (typically a server or networking device). We have a variety of amperages, colors, and plug configurations to help you find the correct cable for your project or IT Installation.
