Cable Retainer

The tendency of cable connector blocks to loosen from their circuit card pins can be overcome by providing an intermediate, molded cable retention plate. The plate is secured to a circuit card and employs raised bosses engageable with corresponding recesses in the cable on connectors.

In the figure, card 1 having pins 2 is fitted with a retention plate 3 held on the card by integral snaps 4 and is formed with openings 5 with walls 6. The walls have raised bosses 7 thereon which engage corresponding recesses 8 in connector blocks 9. Openings in the retention plate and their walls can be made of varying lengths so that multiple connector blocks 9 may be inserted in a row, if desired.
