Abstract

This article describes a modification of existing modular jack parts used for telephone line connection. The modification provides the parts with conductors extending and bent at right angles to support external attachment to personal computer housings and electrical attachment to elements within the housing. Existing commercially available modular jacks 1 of the J11 type can be modified as shown in the perspective view of Fig. 1 to extend conductors 2 in length and bend them 90 degrees. A pin is formed out of them to allow for mounting on a printed circuit board 3. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the plug mounted on a printed circuit board, and Fig. 3 is a front view.
