Abstract A floating terminal connector for use with a circuit substrate having a plurality of elongated conductors. A pin retention structure is axially aligned with through holes on a connector body. A terminal pin passes through the through hole and pin retention structure. An annular projection on the terminal provides a stop to the float travel of the terminal pin in one direction. A head on the terminal pin stops float travel of the terminal pin in the opposite direction.
