NOTES

• See Figure B-3. The tang in the chamber engages the slot to lock the terminal in position.

• On the pin side of the connector, tangs are positioned at the bottom of each chamber, so the slot in the pin terminal (on the side opposite the crimp tails) must face downward.

• On the socket side, tangs are at the top of each chamber, so the socket terminal slot (on the same side as the crimp tails) must face upward.

• Up and down can be determined by the position of the release button (used to separate the pin and socket halves). Consider the button to always be on top of the connector.

2. Gently tug on wire end to verify that the terminal is locked in place and will not back out of chamber.

3. Rotate the hinged secondary lock inward until tabs fully Figure B-3. Multilock Connector Cutaway View engage latches on both sides of connector.
