The LockPort USB protects the fragile output on your camera from tough production abuse with a rock solid innovative ultra-thin clamp and a smart “mini to full-size” USB adapter.


The LockPort USB plate is designed to fit easily every head, baseplate, sliding plate, in the market using the original camera screws already there. Ready in 10 seconds!

The LockPort USB safely secures a 90° REAR output “mini to full-size” USB adapter, protecting forever the “expensive to repair” mini USB port on your HDSLR camera.

  1. We bought 5 lockport USB for the 5D mkiii and we have had nothing but problems with them. 
    The “rear adapter’ female port is cheap, doesn’t clamp the USB tight and allows for a great deal of free movement which results in the port getting more and more loose. Within a day of studio use all 5 ceased maintaining a connection with the computer unless on a tripod with no cable/camera movement. Not what it was built for.

    The idea of creating something robust to prevent the port damage was great, but if there’s still a weak link in the chain – i.e. the rear adapter port – then the product is useless.
