Secure HDMI Cable for Ninja

I just purchased two Atomos Ninja's and a priority has been to find HDMI cables I can have confidence won't easily come loose while filming.

Previously I had searched for the same thing for connecting a monitor to my glidecam rig. At that time (several years ago) the only thing I found was a very stiff HDMI cable that did more harm that good. (I think the idea was that it was so stiff it would stick straight out from the cononector and not droop down where the weight might cause it to come loose).

This time around I tried two possible solutions. One was a short HDMI cable with swivel connectors. I really like how they operate and no doubt the connector would be less likely to come loose.

However the second cable I got is the absolute winner. It is the Pefect path HSMI 700 series with "PerfectLock" connectors. Once you have pushed the HDMI connector on you simply slide up the outside sleeve a bit and it locks the cable in place. After testing it I just ordered a second for my second Ninja unit.
