Abstract

In reprographic machines or other types of office equipment, it is commonly known to utilize wiring harnesses for the connection of electrical components. More particularly, certain connections on these harnesses may be made to connectors on a printed wiring board assembly or other component having tab or pin-like connectors (taps). From a safetykervice perspective, it is necessary to assure that all connectors be completely covered by the appropriate connector in order to avoid the potential for accidental shock during operation or service of such machines.
