Abstract

A receptacle 10 includes a housing 11 of dielectric material having openings 12 for receiving and containing Yshaped electrical contact elements 13. The latter have tubular barrel portions 14 and 15 for accepting tapered terminals crimped or otherwise secured to the ends of electrical lead wires, not shown. The portions 14 and 15 are connected at their lower ends to a shank portion 16 so as to be on opposite sides of the longitudinal centerline of the shank portion. The portion 16 extends through the opening 12 to project from the base of the housing 11 so as to permit attachment of other electrical lead wires, not shown, in a suitable manner such as by wire wrapping.

The latter have tubular barrel portions 14 and 15 for accepting tapered terminals crimped or otherwise secured to the ends of electrical lead wires, not shown. The portions 14 and 15 are connected at their lower ends to a shank portion 16 so as to be on opposite sides of the longitudinal centerline of the shank portion. The portion 16 extends through the opening 12 to project from the base of the housing 11 so as to permit attachment of other electrical lead wires, not shown, in a suitable manner such as by wire wrapping.

The contact elements 13 are held in position relative to the housing 11 by a press fit between the barrels 14 and 15 and the openings 12 and by lances 17 and 18 formed from the barrels 14 and 15, respectively, which effect a grip upon the housing 11.
