VLOG: How to Clock a Connector on an F-16 Wiring Harness


Hi, my name is Malich Quijas. I’m the Training Manager at InterConnect Wiring. where Connections Matter. Today we’ll be looking at how to clock a connector on an F-16 harness.

Clocking a Connector


Now we’ll quickly demonstrate to you how to clock a connector, and here is a basic setup of what we’ll be using today. We have a mating connector, protractor, a connector, and a backshell. We also have a degree to which we’ll be clocking this connector too (180°). You want to line up your master keyway. Just like that it fits in. I know the master keyway is with this black dot. Now what I need to do is make sure that this bar is 180° opposite of that black dot. For now I’ll just be hand-tightening it but I’ll show you later the tool we use.


As you can see, this is perfectly lined up from the master keyway to the backshell at 180°. I hand-tightened this for the video, but typically what an assembler would use is a strap wrench to ensure that it’s properly tightened.


Thank you for watching. We are InterConnect Wiring, where Connections Matter. Please visit our website for future VLOGS and updates.
