Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9717741A1] A device (20) for coupling first and second electrical connectors (40, 70) comprises a dielectric member having a plurality of openings (32) extending therethrough, a first portion (34) of the openings (32) being adapted to grip corresponding exposed body portions (68) of terminals (60) secured in a first connector (40), and a second portion (36) of the openings (32) being adapted to grip corresponding exposed body portions (98) of terminals (90) secured in a second connector (70). Upon placing the first and second connectors (40, 70) adjacent each other and positioning the openings (32) in gripping relationship with respective body portions (68, 98) of the terminals (60, 90) of the first and second connectors (40, 60), the device (20) mechanically secures together the first and second connectors (40, 70) adjacent each other.
