There is tension on the cable. How do I avoid that?

Step 1:

Before we start: There should not be any tension on your cable! If this is the case, please read carefully and follow the instructions below.

Step 2:

There is tension on your cable because the cable stopper was not locked or because you are trying to cover too many rack units. To find out how to use the cable stopper, click here.

Step 3:

First, patch your cable (within the specified range of rack units of your Cassette), then guide the cable to the Patchcatch in the same rack unit as the hardware you have patched to, then guide the cables to the Patchcatch in the same rack unit as your PATCHBOX – and don’t forget to lock the cable stopper at the end. If the switch is right above or below your PATCHBOX, you can skip the Patchcatch due to the short distance covered. As you are using the Patchcatch, you don’t need any other cable managers in your rack.
