         2.13. SWINGLINE LOANS.

         (a) The Swing Line. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth
herein (including without limitation the conditions set forth in Section 5.02
hereof), the Swingline Lender agrees to make loans (each such loan, a "Swingline
Loan") in Dollars, to the Borrower from time to time on any Business Day during
the period from the Closing Date to the Revolving Credit Maturity Date in an
aggregate amount not to exceed Five Million Dollars outstanding at any time;
provided, however, that after giving effect to any Swingline Loan, (i) the
aggregate outstanding amount of all Revolving Credit Loans, Swingline Loans and
Letter of Credit Obligations shall not exceed the Aggregate Revolving Credit
Committed Amounts of all Lenders and (ii) the aggregate outstanding amount of
the Revolving Credit Loans of any Lender other than the Swingline Lender, plus
such Revolving Lender's Pro Rata share of the outstanding amount of all Letter
of Credit Obligations, plus such Lender's Pro Rata share of the outstanding
amount of all Swingline Loans shall not exceed such Lender's Revolving Credit
Committed Amount. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the other terms
and conditions hereof, the Borrower may borrow, prepay and reborrow under this
Section 2.13. To the extent not due and payable earlier, the Swingline Loans
shall be due and payable on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date. Each Swingline
Loan shall bear interest as set forth in Section 2.14. Immediately upon the
making of a Swingline Loan, each Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby
irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Swingline Lender a
risk participation in such Swingline Loan in an amount equal to the product of
such Revolving Lender's Pro Rata share times the amount of such Swingline Loan.
The Swingline Loans shall be evidenced by the Swingline Note.

         (b) Borrowing Procedures. If the Borrower desires that the Swingline
Lender make a Swingline Loan, the Borrower shall give irrevocable notice to the
Swingline Lender, which may be given by telephone. Each such notice must be
received by the Swingline Lender not later than 12:00 noon, Pittsburgh time on
the requested borrowing date, and shall specify (i) the amount to be borrowed,
which may be any amount, and (ii) the requested borrowing date, which shall be a
Business Day. Each such telephonic notice shall be confirmed promptly by
delivery to the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent of a written
confirmation thereof. After receipt by the Swingline Lender of request of a
Swingline Loan, the Swingline Lender shall make the proceeds of such Swingline
Loan available to the Borrower on the borrowing date specified in such notice
available to the Borrower at the Swingline Lender's office by crediting the
account of the Borrower on the books of the Swingline Lender in funds
immediately available at such office.

         (c) Refinancing of Swingline Loans.

                  (i) The Swingline Lender at any time in its sole and absolute
         discretion may request, on behalf of the Borrower (which hereby
         irrevocably authorizes the Swingline Lender to so request on its
         behalf), and the Borrower at any time may request, that a Revolving
         Loan be made in an amount equal to the amount of some or all of the
         Swingline


<PAGE>

         Loans then outstanding. Such request shall be made in accordance with
         the requirements of Section 2.03, without regard to the minimum and
         multiples specified therein for the principal amount of Revolving
         Credit Loans, but subject to the unutilized portion of the Aggregate
         Revolving Credit Committed Amounts and to satisfaction of the
         conditions set forth in Section 5.02. Each Lender shall make an amount
         equal to its Pro Rata share of the amount specified in the applicable
         Standard Notice available to the Agent in funds immediately available
         at the Agent's Office for the account of the Swingline Lender not later
         than 2:00 p.m., Pittsburgh time, on the Business Day specified in such
         notice, whereupon, subject to Section 2.13(c)(ii), each Lender that so
         makes funds available shall be deemed to have made a Revolving Loan
         bearing interest at the Base Rate Option to the Borrower in such
         amount. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received from
         the Lenders to the Swingline Lender.

                  (ii) If for any reason the making of Revolving Loans cannot be
         requested in accordance with Section 2.13(c)(i) or any Swingline Loan
         cannot be refinanced by the making of Revolving Loans, the Standard
         Notice submitted by the Swingline Lender as contemplated by Section
         2.13(c)(i) shall be deemed to be a request by the Swingline Lender that
         each of the Lenders fund its risk participation in the amount of the
         relevant Swingline Loan and each Revolving Lender's payment to the
         Administrative Agent for the account of the Swingline Lender pursuant
         to Section 2.05(c)(i) shall be deemed payment in respect of such risk
         participation in the amount of such Swingline Loan.

                  (iii) If any Lender fails to make available to the Agent for
         the account of the Swingline Lender any amount required to be paid by
         such Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section
         2.13(c) by the time specified in Section 2.13(c)(i), the Swingline
         Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Lender, on demand, such
         amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment
         is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available
         to the Swingline Lender at a rate per annum equal to the applicable
         Federal Funds Rate for three Business Days and thereafter at a rate per
         annum equal to the rate applicable to the relevant Swingline Loan. A
         certificate of the Swingline Lender submitted to any Lender with
         respect to any amounts owing under this clause (iii) shall be
         conclusive absent manifest error.

                  (iv) Each Lender's obligation to make Revolving Credit Loans
         or to purchase and fund risk participations in Swingline Loans pursuant
         to this Section 2.13(c) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall
         not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any set-off,
         counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may
         have against the Swingline Lender, the Borrower or any other Person for
         any reason whatsoever, (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Potential
         Default or Event of Default, or (C) any other occurrence, event or
         condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided,
         however, that each Lender's obligation to make Revolving Loans pursuant
         to this Section 2.13(c) is subject to the conditions set forth in
         Section 5.02. Any such purchase of risk participations by each Lender
         from the Swingline Lender shall not relieve or otherwise


<PAGE>

         impair the obligation of the Borrower to repay Swingline Loans,
         together with interest as provided herein.

         (d) Repayment of Participations.

                  (i) At any time after any Lender has purchased and funded a
         risk participation in a Swingline Loan, if the applicable Swingline
         Lender receives any payment on account of such Swingline Loan, such
         Swingline Lender will distribute to such Lender its ratable share of
         such payment (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments,
         to reflect the period of time during which such Revolving Lender's risk
         participation was outstanding and funded).

                  (ii) If any payment received by the Swingline Lender in
         respect of principal or interest on any Swingline Loan is required to
         be returned by the Swingline Lender, each Lender shall pay to the
         Swingline Lender its Pro Rata share of such amount on demand of the
         Swingline Lender, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to
         the date such amount is returned at a rate per annum equal to the
         applicable Federal Funds Rate.

         (e) Interest for Account of Swingline Lender. The Swingline Lender
shall be responsible for invoicing the Borrower for interest on the Swingline
Loans. Until each Lender funds its Revolving Credit Loan or risk participation
pursuant to this Section 2.05, interest in respect of such Lender's Pro Rata
share of the applicable Swingline Loans shall be solely for the account of the
Swingline Lender.

         2.14. INTEREST ON AND PAYMENT OF SWINGLINE LOANS; OTHER MATTERS.

         (a) Certain Definitions. As used herein, the following terms have the
following meanings:

                  (i) "Applicable Swingline Margin" for any day means
         one-quarter of one percent (0.25%) in excess of the Applicable Margin
         (as defined in Section 2.04(b) hereof) for such day.

                  (ii) "Swingline Interest Period" means, initially, the period
         commencing on June [30], 2003 (the "Start Date") and ending on the
         numerically corresponding date one month later, and thereafter each one
         month period ending on the day of such month that numerically
         corresponds to the Start Date. If a Swingline Interest Period is to end
         in a month for which there is no day which numerically corresponds to
         the Start Date, the Interest Period will end on the last day of such
         month.

                  (iii) "Swingline Interest Payment Date" means, initially, July
         [30], 2003, and thereafter the numerically corresponding date of each
         month. If a month does not contain a day that numerically corresponds
         to the initial Interest Payment Date, the Interest Payment Date shall
         be the last day of such month.

                  (iv) "Swingline LIBOR Rate" means, relative to any Swingline
         Interest Period, the offered rate for delivery in two London Banking
         Days (as defined below) of deposits of


<PAGE>

         U.S. Dollars which the British Bankers' Association fixes as its LIBOR
         rate and which appears on the Telerate Page 3750 as of 11:00 a.m.
         London time on the day on which such Swingline Interest Period
         commences, and for a period approximately equal to such Interest
         Period. If the first day of any Swingline Interest Period is not a day
         which is both a (x) Business Day and (y) a day on which U.S. Dollar
         deposits are transacted in the London interbank market (a "London
         Business Day"), the Swingline LIBOR Rate shall be determined in
         reference to the next preceding day which is both a Business Day and a
         London Banking Day. If for any reason the Swingline LIBOR Rate is
         unavailable and/or the Swingline Lender is unable to determine the
         Swingline LIBOR Rate for any Swingline Interest Period, the Swingline
         LIBOR Rate shall be deemed to be equal to the Base Rate.

         (b) Interest Rates for Swingline Loans. Except as otherwise provided in
this Section 2.14, the Swingline Loans shall bear interest for each day at a
rate per annum equal to the sum of Swingline LIBOR Rate for the Swingline
Interest Period during which such day occurs plus the Applicable Swingline
Margin for such day; provided, however, that if the Swingline LIBOR rate is
equal to the Base Rate as contemplated by the last sentence of Section 2.14(a),
the Applicable Swingline Margin shall be deemed to be zero. Interest on
Swingline Loans shall be payable on each Swingline Interest Payment Date. For
avoidance of doubt, Section 2.09(c)(ii) shall apply to Swingline Loans.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if participations of
the Lenders in any Swingline are funded as contemplated by Section 2.13(c), such
Swingline Loan shall, as of the date the request for such funding is made by the
Swingline Lender, bear interest at the Base Rate Option as provided in Section
2.04 rather than at the rate set forth in the first sentence of this Section
2.14(b).

         (c) Payments and Prepayments of Swingline Loans. The Borrower shall
have the right at any time to prepay Swingline Loans without premium or penalty
by giving notice to the Swingline Lender and the Agent of such intended
prepayment not later than 11:00 a.m. Pittsburgh time on the date of such
proposed prepayment. Section 2.09(b) hereof shall apply to payments of Swingline
Loans. In addition, the Borrower and the Swingline Lender may from time to time
agree to arrangements whereby Swingline Loans are repaid by a "sweep" or similar
mechanism.

         (d) Other Matters with respect to Swingline Loans. References in
Article IX of this Agreement to the Issuing Bank shall be deemed to be
references to each of the Issuing Bank and the Swingline Lender.

         FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the undersigned, BLACK BOX CORPORATION OF
PENNSYLVANIA, a Delaware corporation (the "Borrower"), promises to pay to the
order of CITIZENS BANK OF PENNSYLVANIA (the "Lender") on or before the Revolving
Credit Maturity Date (as defined in the Agreement referred to below), and at
such earlier dates as may be required by such Agreement, the lesser of (i) the
principal sum of Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) or (ii) the aggregate unpaid
principal amount of all Swingline Loans made by the Lender to the Borrower from
time to time pursuant to the Agreement. The Borrower further promises to pay to
the order of the Lender interest on the unpaid principal amount hereof from time
to time outstanding at the rate or rates per annum determined pursuant to
Section 2.14 of, or as otherwise provided in, the Agreement, payable on the
dates set forth in Section 2.14 of, or as otherwise provided in, the Agreement.

         All payments of principal and interest hereunder shall be due and
payable by 12:00 Noon, Pittsburgh time, on the day when due. Such payments shall
be made to the Agent, for the benefit of the Lender, at its Office in Dollars in
immediately available funds without setoff, counterclaim or other deduction of
any nature.

         Except as otherwise provided in the Agreement, if any payment of
principal or interest hereunder shall become due on a day which is not a
Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next following Business Day and
such extension of time shall be included in computing interest in connection
with such payment.

         This Note is the "Swingline Note" as referred to in, and is entitled to
the benefits of the Credit Agreement, dated as of April 4, 2000, as amended, by
and among the Borrower, the Lenders party thereto from time to time, the
Guarantors party thereto from time to time, and Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania,
as Agent (as the same may be further amended, modified or supplemented from time
to time, the "Agreement"), which among other things provides for the
acceleration of the maturity hereof upon the occurrence of certain events and
for prepayments in certain circumstances and upon certain terms and conditions.
Terms defined in the Agreement have the same meanings herein.


<PAGE>

         The Borrower hereby expressly waives presentment, demand, notice,
protest and all other demands and notices in connection with the delivery,
acceptance, performance, default or enforcement of this Note and the Agreement,
and an action for amounts due hereunder or thereunder shall immediately accrue.

         This Note shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance
with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without regard to principles
of conflicts of law.
