A connector permits one printed circuit card to be stacked on another to allow the use of feed-through technology and to provide for strain relief. The connector 21 is generally rectangular in shape and includes a flat surface 21a to facili stacking. The lower portion of member 21 has a tab 21b which extends through an opening 22a in a printed circuit board 22 to lock connector 21 to board 22.
