Description

Available in 8 colours, this is a simple nylon cap to protect BNC video connectors from impact and dust. It pushes on and then rotates on the baynet to lock in place. 

​

The radial fins act as an impact protection while also making it easy to rotate the cap on and off.

Details

​

The idea and design originally came after having to replace one of the male BNC connectors on a Steadicam sled's lower housing after a member of the grip department docked it, shall we say, enthusiastically, on the docking stand, 'dinging' the BNC slightly.

​

I always considered the BNC connector a pretty roughly toleranced connector but although the 'out-of-round' produced by the impact was only 0.2mm, there was no way it was ever going to connect with anything again and replacement was the only option. I now use these on all open BNCs as impact and dust protectors.
