Re: flush mounting


A connector device, for use in a communication system, that receives an electrical communication plug is mounted on a surface such as a wall. The device includes a cover plate having at least one opening and a periphery on a rear side that is mounted flush with screws against the wall. At least one receptacle is attached adjacently to the rear side of the cover plate and has an insulated housing with a communication plug receiving end. The plug receiving end is aligned with the opening and is substantially in the same plane as the cover plate for receiving the plug. A rear end of the receptacle extends into a cavity in the wall. The plug receiving end includes a plurality of spaced apart conductive spring-type contacts, each conductive spring-type contact conductively contacts a corresponding electrical conductor within the plug when the plug is inserted into the plug receiving end. A plurality of wires extend from the rear end of the receptacle and are conductively connected to the spring-type contacts. A terminal board is positioned on the rear side of the cover plate and has a plurality of conductive terminals on a base which are conductively connected to the wires extending from the rearward end of the receptacle and to a plurality of wires conductively connected to the communication system. The terminal board has a plurality of supports projecting towards the cover plate spatially supporting the base from the rear side of the cover plate.
