(54)ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR WITH LATCHES AND TERMINAL POSITION ASSURANCE PROJECTIONS PROVIDED ON HINGED COVER


(57) An electrical connector (10) having electrical terminals (14) and a housing (12) is disclosed. The housing (12) has a terminal-receiving portion (30) with terminal-receiving cavities (38) for receiving the electrical terminals (14) therein. At least one latch-receiving slot (50) is positioned between adjacent terminal-receiving cavities (38). A cover portion (32) is provided for covering the terminal-receiving cavities (38) and the terminals (14). The cover portion (38) has latches (76, 78) which cooperate with the at least one latch-receiving slot (50) when the cover portion (32) is moved to a closed position. A hinge portion (34) connects the terminal-receiving portion (30) to the cover portion (38). The hinge (34) is deformable to allow the cover portion (38) to move between an open position in which the terminals (14) can be inserted and removed from the terminal-receiving cavities (38) of the terminal-receiving portion (30) and the closed position.
