I have a problem with disconnecting DisplayPort cables. Almost all other connection cables are normal, but with dp it is another story. Some dp cables has latches - a locking mechanism. It does not allow you to just pull the cable to unconnect it. You need to press the mechanical button that will release latches.
This was probably designed for "reliability", but that really brings nothing more than problems! This button is hard to press sometimes, and is inconvenient even when you can do it. And there are situations when you just physically cannot press it, leaving you in locked down position.
In my case, I cannot disconnect dp cable before I remove the DVI cable, see picture:
I disassembled my cable, and unfortunately, I doubt I could successfully remove that mechanism and then assemble the cable again.
I know there are cables without latches and I can purchase such to replace mine. But still there are situations when you cannot just replace cable. In my case, the DisplayPort to hdmi adapter also has such latches, and I suffer from this same problem.
So the question is: does such adapter exist that can take a male displayport connector with latches, and output the male displayport but without latches? In other words, can I remove latches by placing adapter and not by modifying the cable itself?
