Disposable Locking Connectors

Customized one-use, disposable, locking connectors are for use in medical, security, and automotive applications.

The connectors offer customized assembly, latching, and removing forces, conductive paths when necessary, small to large glands, high manufacturing tolerances, and minimal assembly. Inner-spring diameters range from 0.020 to 70 in. The connectors can be reassembled by replacing the destroyed spring.
