23. INSERTS. The non-resilient material used for all
insulator and designed so that when mating the
inserts shall be a high grade dielectric having electrical
connector, tension is put on seal and greatly reduces

30. Shell Seal. This seal is effected when plug shell
pushes against sealing ring in receptacle when
connectors are mated.
