Hi, my name is Malich and I’m the Training Manager at InterConnect Wiring, where Connections Matter. Today we’ll be looking at clocking a flat connector and string tying hardware.

CLOCKING A FLAT CONNECTOR & STRING TYING HARDWARE
So when clocking a flat connector, what we’re going to be looking at is, after we remove this dust cover, these two beige pieces on the inside right here. These are called the “key ways” and the purpose of these are to act as the notches on a key so that way in the installation process, these will not allow the operator to install it in an incorrect location.
So how we do this is we take these two little pieces and we go look at the part that is this golden shell, and each part has different orientations, but what we’re looking at is the 9001. So we have a 9001, so we’re using this chart, and what we’re after is these last two digits right here, the 11, which line up right here. We have our black inner and a black outer, which corresponds with our inner key way and outer key way. So using these three tools, that’s how we would clock this flat connector.
For our next demonstration, we’ll be looking at bag and tying hardware onto a RefDes. So when doing this, this is typically called out by the customer to bag and tie because this point or RefDes needs to go through a location that this connector would not squeeze or fit through. So, we bag and tie the hardware just as you see right here, using simple string tie.
