  • Matte black finish
  • Fits table surfaces 0.25-3.00in (6-76mm) thick


To access cables, simply press on the edge of the lid and the opposite end will tilt up for easy removal. After the presentation, the cable ends are returned into the Cable-Nook for safe and neat storage. Cables are fed through the Cable-Nook to the table, enabling connection to the presentation system. The weight of the cables helps to feed the slack back through the unit. The cable ends are kept from falling by a special adjustable retaining ring. The CNK280 is an empty enclosure with a sleek circular lid. The product remains flush with the table when not in use.

The CNK280 is designed to be used with retractable AV cable bundles. Below are the most common AV interconnections we pre-configure in one bundle. A special retaining ring and Velcro™ tie, assure easy cable pull out. The retractable AV cable bundle is also designed for maximum flexibility and long life. No more looking for VGA or network cables separately. Everything is available from one bundle.

Why do Altinex products cost so much?

Why do Altinex products cost so much?

Unlike mass consumer electronics that are produced in large numbers to satisfy a universal demand, Altinex products are designed for a specialized niche market, so they're manufactured in relatively small quantities. Since their design, engineering and production costs can't be divided among millions of units, small-batch Altinex products have a slightly higher cost per unit. In addition, Altinex spares no expense in developing the sturdiest metal fabrication designs possible, and uses the highest-quality materials available, including the pneumatic actuators found in their tabletop power/data interconnect boxes.

Why don't we offer competitors' cheaper imitations? It's easy - Altinex is a leading patent-holder for desk and tabletop connectivity products, so we're only offering the real deal. All this is done so that you can be confident that you're getting the finest solutions available - reliable connectivity products that you can proudly present in your conference facility or classroom.
