Abstract

Low-force, low-resistance pin-to-pin connections are achieved by this connector utilizing duplicate helical springs. The springs are interconnected by screwing one spring into the other. As at A, helical springs 1 and 2 are identical except for the columnar bending. The springs, when screwed together, are as at B to provide connector 3 with a columnar bend of a different form than that provided in the individual springs. When pin 4 is inserted in connector 3; its resistance to alignment exerts pressure on alternate sides of the pin as at C. Thus, good contact between connector 3 and pin 4 is ensured.
