Method to Improve Slide Latch Post Assemblies on Molded Cables

        An improved method for attaching a slide latch post to a "D"
sub-miniature connector is disclosed.  A connector with a swaged
(riveted) clinch nut is used to retain the slide latch post.

        Using a connector with riveted clinch nuts allows the slide
latch post screws to be screwed into the connector without washers
and nuts on the back side.  The clinch nut has a thread forming nylon
insert to retain the post screw (see the figure).
