Abstract

An electrical connector member includes a cylindrical outer shell (1) which encloses a bonded insulating insert assembly (2) having a plurality of axial passages (7) for electrical contacts. The insert assembly includes a rigid main insert (3), a rigid wafer (4), a rubber grommet (6) and a rubber seal (5). The shell has an internal shoulder (8) which provides a stop for a collar (9) provided on the insert (3). A dish shaped resilient beryllium copper retention ring (11) having a plurality of axially directed slots (12) is placed in an internal annular recess (10) in the shell before the insert assembly is inserted into the shell. When the insert assembly is inserted, the smaller diameter edge (16) of the retention ring slides over the collar (9) until, on full insertion, the edge (16) snaps firmly against the shoulder (14) of the collar. The insert is then firmly supported in the shell by the spring force of the retention ring and requires no encapsulation.
