Pin Extender

A pin is provided in its sidewall with an access cutout to its socket center, the cutout being located below the rim of the extender to maintain rim continuity.

A cutout 1 in the sidewall 2 of pin extender 3 is located below the rim 4. Cutout 1 provides access to the central socket 5, which receives an electrical terminal pi (not shown), e.g., the pin of a power transistor or the like. The cutout 1 allows inspection and cleanout of the socket 5 and solder application and bonding there through of the aforementioned terminal pin. The contiguous ring of rim 4 maintains the mechanical integrity of the extender 3 and facilitates the assembling and soldering associated with the aforementioned pin thereto in the socket 5.
