Image Number 8 for United States Patent #7520773.
A flap seating indicator for loadbreak and deadbreak connectors that include a substantially round ring-shaped body and a plurality of flaps located around the circumference of the body and extending from one of the side edges. Each of the plurality of flaps has a first section that attaches to the body and is pivotably connected to a second section that has an indicating surface. The seating indicator is attached to an inner surface of an elbow cuff lip on an elbow connector. When a bushing insert is properly inserted into the elbow connector, the second section of each of the plurality of flaps pivots so that the indicating surfaces of the flaps face the elbow connector.
