The insulating cover assembly includes an upper cover and a lower cover mated with each other. The upper cover has a first locating portion protruded downward from a portion thereof. The lower cover has a second locating portion protruded upward from a portion thereof. When the insulating cover assembly is rightly assembled with the insulating housing, the locating portions are received in the corresponding locating cavities. When the insulating cover assembly is falsely assembled with the insulating housing, the locating portions are interfered with the insulating housing to prevent the false assembly of the insulating cover assembly and the insulating housing.

    Abstract: A power plug connector for connecting with a wire includes a shell with a receiving cavity being opened through a rear end thereof, a pin assembly fastened in a front of the shell and stretching forward beyond the shell, and a rotating body including a pivoting portion rotatably pivoted in the receiving cavity of the shell. The rotating body defines a perforation penetrating through the pivoting portion. One end of the wire is passed through the perforation of the rotating body and then electrically connected with the pin assembly. The rotating body can rotate in the receiving cavity of the shell so that can avoid the wire twisting and fracturing in use and is further easy to arrange the wire in order. Therefore, it prolongs the use life of the power plug connector.

  • Publication number: 20090175053
    Abstract: A connection terminal 39 includes a clip piece 73 and a fixed piece 71 facing each other in the vertical direction, the interval between a claw 74A and a claw 74B provided on the tips of the respective pieces is slightly smaller than the thickness of a flexible printed board 48. Therefore, when the flexible printed board 48 is inserted into a board insert port 68, the flexible printed board 48 is sandwiched and held by the claws 74A and 74B. The flexible printed board 48 is thus temporarily held in the state in which it is inserted in the connector. A projection 77 is projectedly provided on an end of an operation lever 46, and the flexible printed board 48 is provided with a cutout 79 into which the projection 77 is fitted. As a result, after the operation lever 46 is tilted horizontally to fit the projection 77 into the cutout 79, the flexible printed board 48 will not come out of the board insert port 68.
