Abstract

A removable and reattachable connection to the shield braid of a coaxial wire is provided through the use of a snap-on clip. Connection to the shield of a coaxial wire is usually made by soldering a wire to the shield or making the connection through a crimp-type connector. This type of connection cannot readily be removed or reconnected. This detachable and reattachable arrangement requires a ferrule 10 which is inserted under the ground shield braid 12 of the coax wire 14 in order to assure a firm contact base. Ferrule 10 is tin-plated before insertion so that a good electrical contact is made with overlying braid 12. Spring clip 16 is located in flexible housing arrangement 18 which is fitted directly on wire 20 to be connected to braid 12 of wire 14.

Connection to the shield of a coaxial wire is usually made by soldering a wire to the shield or making the connection through a crimp-type connector. This type of connection cannot readily be removed or reconnected.

Ferrule 10 is tin- plated before insertion so that a good electrical contact is made with overlying braid 12. Spring clip 16 is located in flexible housing arrangement 18 which is fitted directly on wire 20 to be connected to braid 12 of wire 14. Wire 20 and spring clip 16 are arranged to make a good electrical connection between them. Spring clip 16 is tin-plated so that when snapped on to braid 12 a good electrical contact results.
