Abstract

This electrical connector mounts on a computer board pin and receives three spade terminals which are thus connected to the pin. The unitary connector includes body channel 3 which fits on the pin and resilient strip ribbon 1 extending laterally from channel 3. The first ribbon loop 7 contacts the pin. Spade terminals are inserted between the loops. Side fingers 9 along ribbon 5 guide the spade terminals and bear an insulating coating.
