Abstract (en)

A shielded electrical connector (10, 10A) includes a dielectric housing (12) having a front mating end (24) for interfacing with a complementary mating connector. A plurality of terminals (18) are mounted on the housing and include contact portions (18a) for engaging appropriate terminals of the mating connector. First and second shields (14,16,16A) of sheet metal material substantially surround the housing. The first shield (14) includes at least one clamping arm (36) projecting therefrom. The second shield (16,16A) includes a hole (40) for receiving the clamping arm (36) of the first shield. The clamping arm (36) is inserted through the hole (40) and is bent into engagement with the second shield (16,16A) to hold the shields together about the housing (12). <IMAGE>
