Connector Clip to Prevent Detaching of the Connector from PCMCIA Card

      Disclosed is a clip which holds a connector for PCMCIA
(Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) card
securely.

      The connector is sometimes easily detached from the card
unexpectedly, even though the connector has a latch mechanism.

      Because of the gap between the connector and card, the latched
connector is very easily twisted and unlatched when the cable is
pulled.

      By attaching the clip to the connector, the gap is minimized
with its thickness, and it will prevent the connector from being
detached easily.  The Figure shows the isometric view of the clip and
its mounted condition.

      The clip is effective for any kind of connector by adjusting
the clip's thickness and hole shape.
