Abstract : The present invention relates to electrical connectors, and more particularly to a connector-to-connector adaptor. Accordingly, the present invention provides a connector-to-connector adaptor which permits the adaptation from one connector interface to another connector interface without modification of electrical equipment interfaces. An adaptor shell has a plurality of contact shafts which replace the respective contacts of the dissimilar connectors to be joined. The adaptor shell is joined to one connector and the contact shafts are inserted first into the openings of one connector and then the other connector. Finally the adaptor shell is joined to the other connector. A pin is integrally connected to one end of the contact shaft and a socket contact with retention means is integrally connected to the other end.
