Abstract

The molded-in push/pull tab (1) will allow simultaneous cable (2) and connector (3) extraction in a linear direction (no canting) from a cable receptacle or header (not shown). The cable is not used as an extraction device, so it will not place a side force or load on the IDC cable strain relief.
