Abstract

Connector assembly 10 has a connector portion 11 adapted to plug onto tongue 25 of printed circuit board 20. Connector assembly 10 has a tendency to disengage from tongue 25 because it is cantilevered therefrom. Wire form retainer 30 functions to support connector assembly 10 in a vertical direction and thereby prevent its disengagement from tongue 25.
