Card to Card Connector

The connector is a double-sided receptacle into which two printed circuit cable cards are plugged to make quick disconnect interconnections in a cable distribution system.

Cards 11 and 13 each have a plurality of parallel contact tabs along their surfaces at one end. The connector comprises a one-piece molding 15 having a row of through cavities 17 corresponding to the number of tabs on the cable cards.

In each of the cavities is a snap-in spring 19 which is generally S-shaped and has a uniform width. When assembling the spring into the molding, the spring engages two shoulders 21 on opposite sides of the molding and snaps into place.
