Project Description

Overview

Several customers expressed interest in waterproof connectors that would not require a “twist-to-lock” action by installers. What they wanted was quick and easy install to make a failure less likely because an installer was in a hurry and forgot to tighten a threaded connector.

Challenges

  • Typical IP67 connectors rely on threaded mating parts to create pressure on a gasket and seal.

Services Performed

  • SGconn designed and built the “Quick Lock” connector line in standard and medium sizes.

Results

  • The new “Quick Lock” uses a spring loaded locking collar that only requires pushing the halves together until a positive “Click” signals the installer mating is complete.
  • Although offering added value in performance, SGconn’s simple design remains cost effective and competitive. Several customers have already chosen Quick Lock over incumbent supplier products.
