Warwick , RI — ETCO Incorporated has introduced a patent pending disconnectable splice design that prevents accidental disconnection by pulling on the spliced wire. A unisex style, self-locking disconnect securely mates to itself and features a large surface contact area.

The ETCO Flat-Snap Splice is a serviceable connection that can rapidly mate and un-mate without force or performance degradation. Its unisex design simplifies assembly, inventory, and repairs. Available in 0.012 to 0.020” thick brass, the connection can be modified to special OEM requirements as a posi-loc terminal and supplied as an insulated connector. —Edited Renee Robbins, editorial director, renee.robbins@reedbusiness.com, Control Engineering Weekly News ( Register here and scroll down to select your choice of eNewsletters free.)
