Robust Designed Thermal Conduction Module Pin Connection

      Addition of a stop to the Harcon connector reduces the
possibility of the Thermal Conduction Module (TCM) pin's traveling
beyond the connector tuning forks.

      In the Figure, pin 1 is mated to the tuning forks 2 of the
connector by moving laterally between the two arms.  If the pin is
driven too far it can lodge behind the connector creating unstable
connection or opens.  Addition of the stop 3 prevents the pin from
passing beyond the connector and improves the reliability of the
connection.
