Title: Connector assembly

Abstract: A connector assembly is provided which includes a connector housing, at least one resilient lever pivotally attached relative to the connector housing, and a slider slidably attached to each lever. The connector housing is slidably engagable with and disengagable from a mating connector assembly in an engaged and disengaged mode, respectively. Each lever engages and disengages the mating connector assembly in such engaged and disengaged mode. The slider is movable to a first position to prevent disengagement of the lever from the mating connector assembly in a locked mode, and to a second position to allow disengaging the lever from the mating connector assembly in an unlocked mode.
