Patent Number: 6,254,420

Title: Device for effecting insulation-displacing connection of one or more wires and for cutting the scrap at their free end

Abstract: A connection device is particularly suited for connection of the two strands of a telephone or computer-related line in a sub-distribution terminal block. The device includes an insulating base with a cavity formed therein in which I.D.C. contacts are secured for receiving the strands. Opposite each I.D.C. contact is secured a blade for cutting the scrap of wire. A pusher, comprising a master screw for movement and lateral slots for introduction of the wires, is telescopically associated with this base. The cutting blade is provided so that, after the cut, the free end of the cut wire is disengaged from this blade. The assembly further forms a reservoir of sealing gel, or other like product, which is virtually closed.
