  • Patent number: 4838816
    Abstract: An electrical terminal comprises a receptacle contact section having cantilever contact members extending from a bottom wall at forward and rear ends of the contact section, the contact members extend toward an upper wall and free ends of the contact members overlap and are spaced from each other so that, upon initial insertion of a matable contact into the contact section, a low insertion force is encountered and the insertion force increases gradually in proportion to the depth of insertion of the matable contact due to engagement between the overlapping free ends of the contact members so that a high contact pressure is obtained at the complete insertion of the matable contact in the receptacle contact section.
