Abstract

This is a lock snap-on connector device 10, which provides the dual function of a printed-circuit card 11 retention and electrical connector 12 guide. The two detents 10a snap over the recessed portions 13 in the card support 14. This action secures the connector 10 either in the guide or card lock position or both, depending upon the application. The upper surface 10b acts as a seating place for the electrical connector 12, while the bottom slot 10c will fit over the printed circuit card 11. The lock snap-on connector can thus be utilized for a printed-circuit card 11 retention and/or an electrical connector 12 guide, thereby enabling more versatile packaging configurations.
