CONEC SnapLock Hoods and
D-SUB Connectors

CONEC SnapLock is the ideal solution for anyone looking for a D-SUB quick-locking system with fast locking and unlocking without additional tools, which also enables locking with an audible and tangible "click", even at poorly visible device interfaces.
The CONEC SnapLock locking system consists of D-SUB connectors and D-SUB hoods allowing quick and safe locking without any additional screwing. A spring-loaded clip integrated in the hood locks in place with the locking bolt mounted to the mating connector and ensures a quick and safe connection. The locking bolt for the connector is available in two variants.
One variant is firmly integrated in the connector, for example with a standard thread insert.
Connector Technology
The advantage is that the locking bolts cannot get lost and do not have to be installed in a second work step. The connectors may be used in the circuit board directly after mounting.
The other variant is a kit for subsequent mounting on connectors for rear panel mounting or as upgrade kit for existing systems, to be used with the CONEC SnapLock hood.
Locking of the locking mechanism is indicated by an audible and tangible click. Due to the high retaining force, safe locking of the connector is provided for many different applications.
The plastic hoods are available in sizes 1 to 5, metallised or black. The material is flame-resistant in accordance with UL 94 V0. In addition to the hoods, we offer appropriate D-SUB connectors (9 to 50 pos.) with integrated locking bolt. The locking bolt is tightly mounted to the connector shell and thus cannot get lost. Further on there is an option to make a hood-to-hood connection . This is done via a connection bolt kit. With a small plastic plate, the connection can be secured from one side against detaching (with one locking plate per side).
Another supplement is the upgrade kit for existing D-SUB systems with threaded insert UNC 4-40. The kit includes two locking bolts with washers. These are screwed in the threaded insert and ensure safe use of the CONEC SnapLock hood. ds
