Amphenol FCI Clincher Connector (3 Position, Male)

These Clincher connectors from Amphenol FCI can be used to terminate Flat Flexible Cables (FFCs) to an easy-to-use standard header. Simply insert the end of the cable into the connector and press it closed. The teeth inside the connector will "clinch" around the conductors and break them out to three male 0.1" spaced pin headers!

Though the Clincher connector can be used with FFCs, we also like to use them with our FlexiForce sensors and other flex/force sensors found in the Recommended Products section below.

Note: Please be aware that we will not be able to accept returns on this connector if it has been closed. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

hard to close and make fit

It is very hard to close, when it does it bulges and threatens to pop open. It isnt clear how to connect the softpot wires but its convenient when you figure it out.

A bit sketchy?

I bought one of these to connect to a SoftPot. Clearly I wasn't doing something right because the 'teeth' would never quite bite into the flex cable, and after a while one of the teeth snapped, making that pin useless. Pro tip: buy more than one of these at a time.
