Abstract

A pair of flat multiconductor cables 1 and 2 are terminated in connect 3 which is adapted to plug into receptacle 4. A retainer clip 5 has a tab 6 which clips over the shoulder portion 7 of connector 3. The clip 5 is installed on connector 3 by placing connector 3 between the ears 8 and 9 and sliding 3 and 5 together. At the same time the clip is pushed into engagement with the connector until tab 6 drops into the recess at the end of shoulder 7.
