Title: Hinged connection system

Abstract: An electrical connection system for making patch cord connections that usesa hinged plug and jack mating system which results in low insertion forcesand enhanced side to side stability for the patch cord connectors. Thissystem allows the jack and most of the mated plug to be positioned behindthe label and have the cordage exit the jack towards the back plane andinto the troughs that are between adjacent rows of connectors, instead ofout from the connector field. This keeps the label area clear of visualobstructions like cordage and connectors.
