Title: Electrical connector

Abstract: An electrical connector comprises a base receiving a number of contacts therein, a cover movably attached to the base, a frame defining a square central chamber for accommodating the base and the cover therein, and a driving mechanism disposed at a selected corner of the frame. The driving mechanism comprises a slider and a driver engaged together. The slider is generally L-shaped and defines a through slot at a corner thereof. The driver comprises a handle and an elliptical cam. The elliptical cam is disposed in the slider via the through slot thereof. When the driver is rotated in a predetermined direction, the cam pushes the slider to move along a diagonal direction of the frame, whereby the cover is moved relative to the base along the diagonal direction.
