Abstract An improved insulation displacement terminal is formed by punching it from a metal blank. The terminal is folded upon itself to form distinct first and second body portions, each of which ends in an upright line-contacting element. The folded over portion of the terminal defines a first contact beam while a second contact beam extends from alongside the terminal and posses underneath the first contact beam to form a terminal-receiving passage therein for an opposing connector terminal.
