Amphenol Socapex's self-closing caps offer real ease of use and optimal protection.

They screw directly onto receptacles and are available in two types of material, composite for PT/451 connectors and aluminium for the 38999 range. A vast choice of plating finishes, including nickel, black zinc nickel, and cadmium, is available to guarantee increased protection against corrosion, impacts, and vibrations. In addition, the metal cap for the 38999 range is protected to IP67.
