The Extron Retractor is a patented cable retraction and management system designed to work with Cable Cubby®, Cable Cubby Series/2, and TouchLink Cable Cubby cable access enclosures. The Retractors are available in versions to support most AV and data signal types, including HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, Network, PC Audio, and USB. The cables extend up to three feet (90 cm) and are held securely in place at the desired length. The Extron Retractor XL is also available for applications where cable extension of five feet (152 cm) is appropriate.

Extron offers two special-purpose Retractor versions. The Retractor DC is a convenient means of extending DC power to laptops from the power supply located beneath the table; laptop power supply not included. It is compatible with many Dell, HP, and Compaq PCs. See DC Laptop Compatibility Guide for details. The Retractor VGA SM provides remote input connection and selection for Extron VSW 2VGA A, and SW VGA Ars.

The Retractor is engineered with a robust mechanism designed to withstand frequent use in schools, libraries, conference rooms, and other high-utilization environments. Each Retractor module includes a pre-loaded, continuous cable for a single signal type, ensuring consistent, reliable performance regardless of cable extension length. A six-foot (1.8 m) pigtail is provided on the input side of the Retractor module for ease of installation and connection to under-table electronics or floor boxes.

Retractors can be mounted vertically for ease of installation next to a table leg or desktop support. For horizontal mounting applications under a table top or other flat surface, an optional mounting bracket is available. Each horizontal bracket holds up to three Retractors.

Cable Cubby, Cable Cubby Series/2, and TouchLink Cable Cubby enclosures support from two to eight Retractor modules, depending on the size of the enclosure. Optional mounting brackets may be required. Please see chart below for details:
