Contact Retention Test Tools

 

The quality assurance test most often overlooked is retention (proper seating of contacts). This important test can be performed simply and in a matter of seconds with the DMC retention testing tools.

 

These tools are for checking the retention of pins and sockets in electrical connectors. The pin and socket tester tips are made of aluminum and all tips are replaceable.
