When the “back-side” connector end-face is contaminated, it is difficult to have access to remove the connector for cleaning


In nearly all installation situations - in a patch-bay on an equipment rack, in a termination junction box, on the face-plate of electronic equipment - access to one of the connectors of any mated pair is very limited. If this “back-side” connector end-face is contaminated, it is very difficult (and sometimes impossible) to have access to remove the connector for cleaning.


This makes it even more important to ensure that these connectors, when installed, are in a clean and pristine a state as possible.
