Title: Adapter retention mechanisms

Abstract

An adapter retention mechanism including an adapter body having a first end and a second end, the first and second ends accepting first and second sets of ganged ferrules in use; a first pair of closure members pivotably connected to the first end of the adapter body, the first pair of closure members comprising first and second locking mechanisms, the first pair of closure members being configured to engage the first set of ganged ferrules; and a second pair of closure members pivotably connected to the second end of the adapter body, the second pair of closure members comprising third and fourth locking mechanisms, the second pair of closure members being configured to engage the second set of ganged ferrules.
