Abstract (en)

Described is a self-locking electrical plug connector with a cylindrical plug (1), a counterplug (21) which is complementary to (1), a bayonet ring (23) which is rotatable about the housing (22) of the counterplug (21) for locking the plug (1) into the counterplug (21). The bayonet ring (23) is gripped by at least one tension spring (66). Around the bayonet ring (23) is arranged a rotatable collar (24) which on being closed, releases the bayonet ring (23) which is interlocked with the counterplug housing (22), so that the bayonet ring is closed by the power of the tension spring (66). <IMAGE>
