Title: Electrical contact

Abstract: An electrical contact includes an electrical contact portion which has a square tubular shape, and into which a mating contact is insertable. The electrical contact portion includes a bottom wall (6), a pair of opposite side walls (7, 8) extending upright from the bottom wall (6), a top wall (9) extending from one of the opposite side walls (7) and disposed in opposed relation to the bottom wall (6), and a reinforcing wall (12) formed integrally with the other one of the opposite side walls (8) and partially covering the top wall (9). A pair of lower and upper resilient contact pieces (18, 17) are formed integrally with the top wall (9) of the electrical contact portion, and located in the electrical contact portion. The lower resilient contact piece (18) extends from the top wall (9), and the upper resilient contact piece (17) opposes to the lower resilient contact piece. Distal end portions (18b, 17b) of the pair of lower and upper resilient contact pieces (18, 17) are extended in different directions away from each other. Holes (21, 22) for receiving the distal end portions (18b, 17b) of the pair of lower and upper resilient contact pieces (18, 17), are respectively formed through at least two of the walls (6, 9) of the electrical contact portion.
