Fiber optic connectors

Image Number 8 for United States Patent #6464408.

A housing of a fiber optic connector such as an MT-RJ connector has a greater surface area and ridges for improved handling and grasping. A door is provided on a fiber optic connector socket to block light leakage from the socket. The door is compact and does not interfere with neighboring devices while closed. The connector has a housing that centers the ferrule and keeps it in a position for precise alignment with the opposing ferrule. A pin retainer is designed to allow insertion and removal of alignment pins in the field without the need for removing the connector from the fiber optic, so that male connectors can be connected to female connectors and vice-versa.
