PROVIDE POSITIVE LOCKING CLIP FOR AMP DUAC P/L CONNECTOR SYSTEM

   The AMP Duac P/L connector system is available with an extended length latch arm. When this extended latch arm is used in a confined area, the installation/removal of adjacent components can partially activate this latch, which can result in an unlatched condition. Also, normal shipping and handling activities can create this unlatched condition due to the vibration of the latch and associated cables. Our locking clip shown in the figure attaches to the connector body,and contains a ramp that is positioned under the extended latch, between the latch and the connector body, which prevents an unlatched condition.The locking clip is retained in place by the loop around the connector body. To unlatch the connector, you must pull back on the locking clip and then activate the latch. The locking clip is retained to the cable body, by an additional loop, so that the locking clip is not lost or misplaced.
