The connectors are specifically designed to meet high vibration requirements above and beyond the specification requirements of MIL-C-26500. The plug connector features a unique non decoupling device which offers a ratchet mechanism designed to engage as the threaded connectors approach a bottomed condition. Connector coupling assembly continues to ratchet for approximately 120 degrees until the mated connectors reach a complete metal-to-metal bottomed condition. The ratchet device maintainsthe connectors in a fully coupled condition, thus eliminating the need for safety wiring.
