Abstract

A female electrical connector and method of using same includes a body having a bore therethrough for receiving electrical plug and a helical groove formed in the bore. A canted coil spring is disposed in the helical groove and protrudes therefrom for providing both electrical connection to the plug and retention of the plug within the bore and a connecting lug embedded into the body, surrounding the bore and interconnected with the spring includes a wire segment extending exterior to the body.
