Abstract

The connector shown is adapted to connect a pin 15, which is mounted in a board 12, to a terminal 19. The connector includes a spring 10, a housing 11 and a cam 16. The spring 10 has two holes 10A which are out of alignnent when the spring is in the free state. In the compressed state the contact holes are aligned, making it possible to slip the connector over the pin 19.
