Title: Electrical connector assembly with readily removable pick up cap

Abstract: An electrical connector assembly (1) includes an electrical connector (2) and a pick up cap (3) mounted onto the connector. The connector (2) includes an insulative housing (20) and a multiplicity of terminals (21) received therein. The pick up cap includes a base portion (30), and first and second extending portions (31, 32) extending from opposite ends of the base portion respectively. A first and second clasp (312, 321) respectively depends from a corresponding cantilever end of the first and second extending portions. The first clasps outwardly form a pair of symmetric protrusions (3120) at distal ends thereof respectively. A latching arm (322) interconnects distal ends of the second clasps. The housing defines latching portions (2005) and a latching protrusion (2013) corresponding to the protrusions and the latching arm, respectively.
