  • Patent number: 6984143
    Abstract: An electrical plug or socket has locking hooks on the ends of flexible locking arms extending from its housing. The other has locking receivers including open slots and catch rims on its housing. When the plug is connected with the socket, the locking arms extend into the slots and the locking hooks engage the catch rims to form a locked connection. The locking hooks protrude laterally outwardly, and yielding protrusions or lever arms protrude laterally inwardly, from the free ends or along the length of the locking arms. The lever arms and/or the free ends of the locking arms can contact and slide along outwardly sloping ramps of sidewalls of the housing, to exert an outward locking force on the locking arms, and to achieve a disconnecting force that separates the plug from the socket when finger pressure is applied laterally inwardly to the free ends of the locking arms.

  • Patent number: 6974340
    Abstract: An electrical plug connector assembly includes a socket connector and a plug connector. The socket connector includes a housing within which a U-shaped contact spring physically contacts a fixed contact part to establish an electrical connection. The U-shaped contact spring is disposed horizontally within the housing, in such a way that an imagined bending axis of the U-shaped contact spring lies parallel to the plug direction. The horizontal arrangement of the U-shaped contact spring within the housing makes it possible for the socket connector to have a relatively flat structure. A preferred application of such a plug connector unit is within a mobile telephone.

  • Patent number: 6966790
    Abstract: An electrical plug has locking hooks on the ends of flexible arms extending from its housing. An electrical socket has locking receivers on its housing. When the plug is connected with the socket, the locking hooks engage the locking receivers to form a locked connection. A spring-loaded unlocking bail is pivotally arranged on the housing of the socket. Finger pressure applied to the bail against the spring bias pivots the bail so that its bail legs pivot over and press against protrusions of the flexible arms, to inwardly deflect the arms and disengage the locking hooks from the locking receivers, thereby unlocking the arrangement so that the plug can be separated from the socket.

  • Patent number: 6743031
    Abstract: A plug connector has a U-shaped snap-on clip with a web, which incorporates a contact lug. The web is seated in a slot of the casing. A contact is situated at the end of the U-shaped snap-on clip, between its arms. An opening for inserting a contact pin is situated in the top side of the housing. This contact pin spreads the arms of the U-shaped snap-on clip, so that they detach from the contact. This plug connector, which is especially suited for use in a cordless radiotelephone, is distinguished by a small structural size, low production costs, a small number of components, high contact reliability, and an especially low juncture resistance.

  • Patent number: 6350155
    Abstract: A plug connector with a hollow, cylindrical, metallic housing (1), within which is centrically disposed an inside contact pin (8, 9, 10) extending at least approximately over the entire axial length of the housing (1). In order to make contact with the reciprocal plug connector, the inside contact pin (8, 9, 10) is accessible at a first front side of the housing (1). The first front side is open toward the plug side of the plug connector, such that a latch interlock (6, 7) and a contact basket (5), which extends out of the open front side of the housing (1) and which is rotatably mounted about the longitudinal axis of the housing (1), are disposed co-axially with the inside contact pin (8, 9, 10). The contact basket (5) makes permanent electrical contact with the metallic housing.
