Title: Process of manufacturing a removably interlockable assembly

Abstract: A process for making a removably interlockable connector assembly that includes a first connector having a head on a mesa and a second connector having an opening that receives the head on the first connector. The head on the mesa of the first connector and the material defining the opening in the second connector are flexible and sized, so that the head on the mesa of the first connector and the material defining the opening in the second connector flex as the head on the mesa of the first connector is inserted into the opening in the second connector. The head on the mesa of the first connector is formed by selectively etching portions of a first pad layer through openings in an etch resistant layer.
