Screwless electrical contact terminal for electrical accessories
An electrical contact terminal for electrical accessories.
Patent application no. - 3165/MUM/2010

This invention relates to the method of connecting wires to electrical accessories.

The accessories have terminals with spring comprising of a base connector fixed to the body and a connector that moves along vertical axis of base connector. The connectors have perpendicular holes to insert wire. A spring is between two connectors to push connectors away from each other.

The moving connector is pressed so the perpendicular holes on both connectors are aligned and form a co-axial hole. Wire is inserted in the hole and connector is released. The spring pushes moving connector apart and wire is clamped between holes.

The moving connector has an insulating cap on top to allow the using terminal in live circuit.

This terminal needs less time to connect and also reduces possibility of loose connection of wires
