    I want one!

    One question, how are the cat5 cables locked in? I would like to make a similar "lanbox" on a smaller scale and having the cables secured would be very useful

    Thank you guys for the kind words :D

    DarkReaper:
    The cat5 plugs into the jacks like normal, then the door closes down over the cable itself and holds it into place so it cant be pulled out.

    Are there semicircles in the door edge to let the door close without pinching the cable?

    the pics on that page are of the door on the back. The switches sit behind the window and the cable comes down from there. I cut the notch in the bottom part of the door to catch the cables and hold them into place. The door locks into place after it gets shut so that the cables are held there.
