Tethering connector

I tether 5dm4 to my laptop via USB port in camera but the connector at the camera side often comes loose. Then I loose the link. Is there some kind of clamp or bracket that will hold the cable and/or connector in place while I use the camera?

There should be a cable clamp included with new cameras.  Check out the “In The Box” link.

You are so right. Haven't looked in the box since I bought it. Works great! Thanks

Thank you. Sorry that I deleted my reply, so for those keeping up with this thread, I simply said that my 5D4 came with the protector and was actually attached to the provided cable and that it was still in the box and may have been overlooked if you already had a cable. That was my case also. I have 10' and 30' cables for various situations, so the OEM with protector was never taken out of its plastic bag.

I'm glad you found it!
