What does "Right Angle" really mean?

The best way to explain something is by using pictures, as the cliché says, "A picture is worth a thousand words". You probably came across this article while searching on the internet for the perfect USB cable. A right angle USB cable with just the right size. This Right Angle USB Chart will help you determine exactly what you need.

For determining if it's a Right Angle, Left, Up or Down Angle, we use the perspective shown by the pictures below. You'll also see the USB connectors below the picture to show you what exactly we mean when we say it will be angled in a certain direction. That should make it easier to apply to your situation and your need. Let us know if you have any questions. Our toll free number is 877-522-3779
