Abstract (en)

An auxiliary wire terminal (10) for removable placement in an electrical terminal cable clamp (22), constructed of an electrically conductive material that is shaped at its outward end (18) to mate with a connector on an auxiliary wire. The back section (12) of the auxiliary terminal (10) is positioned behind the terminal clamp (32) and extends at right angles under the clamp (32) and electrical cable (28) so that its flat surface (14) rests on the cable clamp electrical terminal (24) under the cable (28). The auxiliary connector end (16) extends out of the cable clamp cable insertion opening. The auxiliary connector end extending out of the cable insertion opening is bent at an angle approximately 20 DEG relative to the bottom surface of the cable clamp terminal (24) to clear the cable (28). Clamping the cable (28) also clamps the auxiliary wire terminal (10) onto the main terminal (24).
