Accell is a cable and A/V switching company that bombards us with every new thing that the company puts out - and they put out a lot of products. This week, the company got our attention with a new type of HDMI cable designed to prevent the cables from falling out - a common issue with HDMI, particularly with heavier gauge cables. We've looked at locking HDMI cables before - and they really make sense. The new cable is called the AVGrip Pro Locking High Speed HDMI Cable. It's available in nearly any length imaginable - provided your imagination stops at 3 feet. While it's particularly suited for rack mount installations, the 3-foot limitation leaves us wanting more... more options.
Accell’s new AVGrip Pro Locking High Speed HDMI Cable is ATC certified, unlike many locking-HDMI solutions that use different form factors and other methods which aren't approved by HDMI Licensing. And Accell's cables are typically pretty decent, featuring 100% foil shields and a high-density metal braid to reject em (electromagnetic) and RF (radio frequency) interference. And the jackets are slick too - literally. Dubbed "UltraFlex" they provide protection and are also easy to pull. Of course, since they only cmoe in 3-foot lengths, you won't be pulling them too far. Accell also sells these in 1-foot lengths, making them perfect for interconnecting gear in equipment racks - for which these cables are specifically designed (Accell makes longer HDMI cables in other form factors for those of us who need distance.)
Accell’s AVGrip Pro Locking High Speed HDMI Cable has an MSRP of $14.99 each and will also be available in a value package of six cables for $79.99.

..., the 1-foot limitation leaves us wanting more... more length options.
Yes, but the write up states 3 ft. Which is it, 1 or 3?
Or, was that suppesed to be 1 meter
I can't imagine a 1 foot HDMI cable being of much use so I'll assume it's 3 foot.
