Abstract

Fig. 1 illustrates an arrangement for mounting an electrical device such as a motor 10 in a fixed relationship with a support plate 11 whereby the movement of the motor 10 during the mounting to the support plate 11 automatically makes the electrical connection between a connector 15 on the motor and a power source connector 16 disposed in a fixed relationship relative to the support plate 11. Support plate 11 is provided with a pair of 'L' shaped grippers 13 which coact with the flanges 14 on the base of the motor 10. Rotation of motor 10 about an axis 20 through the angle 21 locks the motor 10 to the plate 11 and joins the connectors 15 and 16 in one motion.
