ProMediaGear A10 Cable Port Snag Protector Overview
The ProMediaGear A10 Cable Port Snag Protector prevents your camera cables from getting pinched. It protects the cables from getting removed accidentally too.
This port protector attaches to L-Brackets and other ProMediaGear accessories via two thumbscrews. Once attached, the cables are set in place preventing unnecessary movement. It also weighs 20 grams only and is made of CNC aluminum.
Why use the A10 Cable Port Protector?
The main reason why you need a cable protector is to prevent cables from detaching while in use. For an instance, you are in a huge shoot and the cable gets accidentally removed while recording. A cable protector prevents that from happening.
Also, cables wiggling might damage the ports of your camera. In that case, replacing the cable ports might cause you hundreds of dollars for repairs.
Good protection. You KNOW your cable is securely attached.
Thank you Joseph for writing a review! Yes, it's a great addition to protect your camera cables.

Such a great idea to simplify securing cables to the camera's port. At least in the R5, the ports are connected directly to the motherboard so any port damage from a snagged cable means an expensive repair. Even with an engineering background I could barely figure out how to use the cable protector Canon supplies with the EOS R5. That, plus the Canon device is plastic where PMG's is nicely finished metal with long metal screws to secure it to the L-Bracket. Simple bit of kit, but perfect for what it does and potentially saving you from down time and a big repair bill.
This is a very useful product. I use mine to secure an electronic cable release on my Nikon F5 film camera. There is less chance of a cable getting snagged and pulling it - damaging the connector and pins!
Like all PMG products, this item is very well thought out and built perfectly. I needed something to keep my cable during a tethered shoot secure and not run the risk of the cable falling out or damaging the port so I contacted my favorite person at PMG, Tom, and he took care of me as he always has in the past. ProMediaGear makes top notch products built to last.
Perfect for holding tether cables on to your L bracket. Works great on all tether tools cables. Probably the best solution Iâ€™ve found for holding tether cables. Long screws as well so youâ€™ll not lose them when shooting without using the item
