Class Information
Number: 439/823
Name: Electrical connectors > Metallic connector or contact having movable or resilient securing part > Spring actuated or resilient securing part > Separate spring means moves rigid nonresilent clamping part into securing condition > Socket or pin connector having small radially biased clamping or detenting element
Description: Electrical connector either comprising a male connector adapted to be pushed linearly along its longitudinal axis into the elongated hollow interior of a mating female connector, or comprising the said female connector; and wherein the spring member carried by the male or female connector resiliently urges a rigid clamping or retaining part radially of the longitudinal axis of the connector, so as to either exert a radial clamping pressure on the lateral surface of the mating connector or to resiliently snap-latch into a shouldered recess located in the lateral surface of the mating connector.
