In certain instances it is important to accurately determine the angular orientation of a diode detector on a printed wiring board. The positioner presented in Figures 1 to 3 provides positive orientation by keying on a TO-44 base tab and then snapping into a printed wiring board. This provides the required positioning of the dual diode chips or similar articles. Figure I shows a top view of the positioner. Figure 2 shows a front view with a component in place and shown in phantom. Figure 3 shows a front view of the fastener looking directly into the slot which accepts the base tab of the chosen component.
