Snap-On Connectors

Connectors featuring a "Snap-on" coupling mechanism are easily connected with a straight push and unmated with a straight pull. They are well suited for connections in limited spaces or dense environment.

Radiall offers a broad range of standard and proprietary Snap-on series. The most popular Snap-on interfaces being, SMB and MCX. A main benefit of Snap-on connectors, is they allow 360-degree rotation, making it easy to connect and orientate a right angle plug to a receptacle. However, Snap-on connectors can be accidentally unmated by pulling on the cable or connector, which can be seen as a weakness.

Snap-on interfaces are sometimes also proposed as "Slide-on" types. To connect, simply push the male and female connectors together and mating is maintained by spring-finger friction. Slide-on versions are useful when connectors must be mated and unmated frequently, this is the case for test and evaluation.
