Clincher Flex Connectors

The Clincher 0.1" (2.54mm) pitch connector family includes single-row pin and receptacle connectors designed for termination to flat flexible circuitry. AFCI’s proven Clincher design has become the standard by which other products are judged. The addition of keying and active latching options to the receptacle offering make Clincher products the smart choice for even more applications. All receptacle connectors use the same customer-preferred and patented Clincher contact and are ideal for applications where shock or vibration are concerns.
