RapidRun has become synonymous with flexibility and ease of installation in the field. Now RapidRun has made it even easier to install custom length patch cables. RapidRun F/F Couplers provide the connection needed to connect two Flying Leads together without the need for a Runner, allowing the user to easily create custom length patch cables in the field. Simply choose two Flying Leads and the appropriate coupler, then join the Flying Leads together to create a custom cable from 3ft to 20ft in length in just seconds. Installations are made easier by allowing an installer to simply slide one DIN type connector through a congested cable access. Two versions are available; 12 pin for RapidRun HT applications and 15 pin for RapidRun UXGA applications. The couplers merely act as very short Runner cables.


  • Use to connect two Flying Leads together in order to make custom length patch cables
  • Female-to-Female design to connect two Flying Leads
  • Use the 12 pin option for RapidRun HT (blue) applications and the 15 pin option for for RapidRun UXGA (yellow) applications
REVIEW SUMMARY for RapidRun Multimedia 12-pin DIN (Blue) Coupler F/F | C2G 42188
No reviews for this product

Q: What kind of connector is that?

This is a proprietary circular DIN-style connector. This connector is used solely for RapidRun products.

Q: Can I join two Runners together for an extreme long length?

Couplers are available, however extreme lengths should be avoided. Short extension cables are also available. Please note that video source equipment and cable length will play a part in the quality of the video image on the display. Be aware of the limitations of your equipment and the effect of the additional cable on the picture quality of your display.

Q: How is the connector terminated?

The conductors of the cable are soldered securely to the DIN connector. This is standard practice for factory-assembled cables, and results in a high-performance, highly stable connection.

Q: Is this CL2 or CL3 rated?

The Runners use a CL2-rated jacket, which is suitable for installation into walls and ceilings of residential applications. An installer should always check with local building codes regarding cable jackets & installation practices.

Q: How large of a conduit can I put it in?

3/4” conduit, with a 90-degree sweep. Conduit can be field-bent, or come as a factory sweep.

Q: How long of a cable can I have?

Normal signal length recommendations apply. For standard definition analog A/V (composite, S-video, YPbPr) signals, lengths often exceed 200 feet. The longest runners that will be stocked are 150-footers. See the cable length “rules of thumb” in Appendix A

Q: Does it support Hi-Def?

Yes. The analog system supports VGA & YPbPr analog video, both of which support HD resolutions (up to and including 1080p). Length considerations should always be taken into account. The digital system supports all HD resolutions carried by HDMI, including 1080p.

Q: How thick does the wall need to be to hold the wall plate? Do I need a special J-Box?

The Break-Away wall plate takes up the same space as a standard electrical outlet/junction box. It fits into either plastic or metal single-gang box, or into a mud ring/Arlington bracket. A metal box is preferred.

Q: What kind of faceplate do the wall plates use?

Any standard decora style faceplate.

Q: I want a wall plate on one end, and a pigtail on the other end—will this work?

Yes that will work fine. The type of termination can vary—wall plate/wall plate, flying lead/flying lead, flying lead/wall plate.

Q: Can I run the RapidRun alongside AC power?

That is not a good idea no matter what kind of AV cabling is being installed. Best practices indicate that at least low-voltage communication cables should be separated from AC power lines by at least 6 inches of space. If they must intersect, do so at a right angle.

Q: How strong is the pulling eye?

Pulling force should not exceed 30 pounds. The pulling ring is designed to fail at this force, in order to protect the connector terminations. If stronger pulling force is needed, a pulling aid that attaches to the wire itself (such as a Kellum grip) should be used.
