Title: PROGRESSIVE LOCK WASHER ASSEMBLY FOR COAXIAL CABLE CONNECTORS
Abstract:
A cable connector (10) includes a body (11) having a longitudinal axis A, an inner post (15), an outer barrel (16) mounted to the inner post (15), and a fitting (14) mounted to the inner post (15). The inner post (15) includes a front (30), a rear (31), and an outwardly-directed front flange (38) at the front (30). The fitting (14) includes a front (49), a rear (41), and an inwardly-directed rear flange (46) at the rear (41). The fitting (14) is mounted on the inner post (15) so that the front and rear flanges (38) and (46) overlap to define a toroidal volume (50). A wave washer (51) and a lock washer (52) are each carried in the toroidal volume (50). When the fitting (14) is applied to a female post (80), the wave washer (51) and the lock washer (52) are compressed between the front and rear flanges (38) and (46) and exert an axial bias on the front and rear flanges (38) and (46) to prevent axial separation of the fitting (14) and the female post (80).
