Quick Mounting Light Receptacle

The light receptacle is designed for easy insertion from either the front or back of a mounting panel, such light receptacle being so insertable, if desired, with the bulb connected to the socket. The light bulbs are employed as indicating lights on a computer panel.

The socket has an insulating casing (C) of nylon, plastic, or the like that houses a bayonet-type light bulb receiving segment (B). This includes electrical conductors which connect with electrical terminals (T) protruding through the insulating casing. The casing
(C) is tapered and its upper section is slotted (S) to permit one to press the slotted sectors of the casing together. When the entire socket and bulb assembly is inserted into an opening (0) in a mounting panel, the slotted sectors urge the groove (G) against the periphery of opening (0). A lug (L) acts as a locating pin during insertion onto the panel.
