Positive Lock Mark I

Lowest insertion force

The Mark I family are the lowest-insertion-force receptacles in their class. To reduce unwanted backout, they offer retention force with a mechanical snap that you can both hear and feel. Mark I receptacles provide a reliable, easy-to-use solution for high-current applications.

The Mark I receptacles carry high current due to the transition area not being cut out to create a locking detent. The detent lever, which is an additional feature, is rolled back from the front of the terminal. The optimal spring location of the dimple enables low insertion force. 

Positive Lock Mark II

Competitively priced

Combining low insertion force with high retention force, the Mark II family provides a cost-effective, reliable solution. Priced to be competitive, the Mark II family offers superior value in many applications.

The Mark II receptacle’s detent lever is created by punching out material from the transition area of the terminal. The rolls on these receptacles feature flared edges, and because the tab does not slide on the bare edge, insertion force is reduced.

Positive Lock Mark III

Facilitates assembly

Mark III family of receptacles enhance insertion force and contact retention. The Mark III receptacle’s detent lever, similar to the Mark II product, has a cutout in the back transition area of the terminal.
