Abstract An electrical connector for flexible printed board includes a housing with an opening, and a cover rotatable about a pivotal axis for closing or opening the opening. When the cover is closed, a pressure portion disposed along one edge of the cover is clamped between a flexible printed board on a resilient piece of a fork-shaped contact and a fixing piece of the contact while pressing the flexible printed board against the resilient piece. A wire fixed within the cover includes a pair of opposite ends projecting from lateral sides of the cover along the pivotal axis, and an intermediate portion circumventing the pressure portion as spaced a distance from the pivotal axis.
