Title: RJ-45 jack module with simultaneous plug release

Abstract: A device is provided for receiving RJ-45 plugs in corresponding jacks. Each RJ-45 plug has a lever arm movable from a locked position, locking the plug to a corresponding jack, to a released position permitting the plug to be removed from the corresponding jack. The device includes a body having a plurality of jacks therein. Each jack is constructed and arranged to receive at least a portion of a RJ-45 plug therein. A plug releasing mechanism is mounted with respect to the body and is constructed and arranged such that when at least two plugs are disposed in the locked position in corresponding jacks, movement of the plug releasing mechanism to an actuating position engages the lever arm of each of the plugs, moving the lever arms to the released position generally simultaneously.
