How to Find the Perfect Cable

Title How to Find the Perfect Cable
Duration 02:24 (mm:ss)

With more than 2,000 cable and connectivity solutions, Tripp Lite offers the most comprehensive selection of in-stock, ready-to-ship inventory on the market.

But with so many products, how do you find the perfect cable for your needs?

At, this job is simple.

To find everything you need, click Cables & Connectivity at the top of any page.

If you already know the type of cable you need, you can choose a category on the left side of this mega-menu, then filter products by type or technology. And you can narrow your choices further by adding additional parameters.

To search by connector type, use the cable finder on the right side of this menu. First, choose the connectors on each end of the cable to see a list of matching model numbers. Next, choose the length, color, and select your model.

To compare and contrast cables in convenient, customizable chart format, use the matrixes listed under the cable finder. The network matrix filters by type and style, and the fiber optic matrix filters by type.

If you have the part number of a competitor’s product and would like to find a comparable Tripp Lite product, click Competitor Cross-Reference, then enter the part number and find the match.

To educate yourself on fiber optic or HDMI cables, use one of the buying guides listed under the cross-reference. These guides provide solid background information and ask important questions that help narrow down your choices.

If you’d like to see what other people have been searching for, scroll through the list of popular search terms at the bottom of this menu.

Remember: if at any point during your search, you have questions or need help, this Live Chat button at the top of your screen will connect you directly to Tripp Lite’s Cable Sales Manager.

Thank you for choosing Tripp Lite for all of your connectivity needs.
