Patent Number: 6,167,183

Title: Low profile communications outlet box

Abstract: A low profile communications outlet box is disclosed which can accommodate fiber optic cables in a compact housing without bending the fiber optic cables past their minimum bend radius. The outlet box has a base and a cover for forming a wiring space therebetween. A pair of winding rings or members are located between the base and cover to prevent the fiber optic cables from being bent beyond their minimum bend radius. The winding rings or members overlap each other to decrease the size of the outlet box. Moreover, the winding rings or members are offset from each other such that the upper winding member lies in a different plane from the lower winding member.
