Abstract

The vertical stability of a tuning fork connector, used in conjunction with tri-lead or coaxial cable connections, is improved by use of ground rail 1. The latter is provided with dimples 2 at locations equidistant with respect to each connector housing 3. A connector housing 3 is chamfered as at 4, drawing A, and is stabilized by abutting the dimpled portion of ground rail 1. An alternate method of stabilizing connector housing 3 is shown in drawing B where ground rail 1 is provided with raised V-portions 5 and housing 3 is beveled as at 6.
