The coaxial design allows for complete 360° connection, which eliminates alignment problems during installation. The coil spring contact provides for a highly reliable connection, says the vendor, and reduces the chance of contact destruction if the connector is accidentally disconnected while under load. A pivot lever locking mechanism, located on the connector’s exterior, provides a fast and secure fit as well as holding power. Once the levers are fastened, they can only be disengaged with a standard screwdriver, preventing accidental disconnections.
