Abstract

This cable retention device holds cable assembly 10 within housing 11 so as to prevent disconnection or wear of contacts 18 relative to pins 17 due to vibration. Housing 11 is fixed on mounting panel 12 by screws 13 and 14, with insulating spacer 15 being positioned directly on panel 12. Card 16, with upstanding contact pins 17, is positioned between spacer 15 and housing 11. Assembly 10 has a plurality of openings on its lower face and contains pin gripping electric connectors 18 for plugging onto pins 17. Cable 19 extends out of assembly 10 and has a plurality of wires 20 connected with connectors 18. Spring clips 21 and 22 are hingedly mounted on housing 11 and are movable to overlie shoulders 23 and 24 on assembly 10 to hold such assembly with spring pressure on card 16.
