Abstract : The patent relates to a pressure apparatus to simultaneously check a multi-contact electrical connector to discover if any of the contacts are improperly installed from a mechanical viewpoint. The apparatus applies an air pressure force on a plurality of pistons which in turn applies this force on the individual contacts being tested. If the contacts are improperly installed the contacts will be forced out of their proper position.
