Secure Mount Series

Background

Existing board socket and pin connectors are mounted into a large expensive piece of insulating board, usually fiberglass or melamine, and requires a precision mounting hole. Small knurls on the shaft of the connectors are pressed into the mounting hole to prevent rotation. Over-tightening of the connector can easily strip the knurls out of the mounting hole, rendering the connector inoperable. Additionally, the design of the rear of the existing connector does not allow for direct attachment of a standard electrical lug and can not carry amp loads offered by the Secure Mount receptacle.
