Abstract : A fluid tight, detachable underwater electrical connector assembly having a self-locking capability for use in connecting underwater hydrophones. The connector assembly comprises a female plug or receptable housing, at least one electrical conductor, and a 'feed-thru' tube leading from the receptable housing for isolating the electrical conductor from a fluid environment. The receptable housing is clear or substantially transparent thereby allowing visual inspection for leaks. (Author)
