Stopper for Data Connector

Disclosed is a stopper for preventing data connectors from being disengaged by an unexpected force.

Referring to Fig. 1, the stopper has four beams 1 and two ribs 2. The data connectors 3 and 4 engage each other, as shown in Fig. 1. The connector 3 has a rib 5, and the connector 4 has an extended portion 6 and a rib 7. The same ribs and extended portion are provided on the bottom sides of the connectors 3 and 4. When the stopper is engaged with the data connectors 3 and 4, as shown in Fig. 2, the beams 1 engage with the ribs 5 and 7, and the ribs 2 engage with the backsides of the extended portion 6, whereby the stopper prevents the unexpected disengagement of the data connectors 3 and 4.
