Title: Electrical connector with improved housing structure

Abstract: An electrical connector comprises a dielectric housing and a number of contacts received in the housing. The housing defines three aligned apertures and a partition is provided between two proximate aperture. The housing defines four recesses equiangularly disposed in a periphery of each aperture and two selected recesses thereof are respectively recessed in two partitions beside the aperture. Therefor each contact is received in a corresponding aperture and abuts against parts of the periphery of the aperture that are not recessed therein while being spaced from the partition. Thus, stress exerted on the partitions is limited thereby preventing the partitions from being crushed by the contacts.
