Tempered female connectors 10 are joined to more flexible extensions 12 to facilitate making connections to the connectors 10. The connectors are held in position by selvedged male members 14 while they are welded to the leads 12 which are also joined together by selvedge. A plastic body 16 is molded over the combination. The connectors can now be inserted into through holes 18, and the extensions 12 bent to form a pad 20. The pad 20 may then be connected to the board pad 21 by a jumper 22 or may be direct wire bonded to one of the twisted pair wires of a net wire system.
