The termination method of Molex’s Lite-Trap™ connector system is similar to Molex’s Wire Trap connectors, and also to certain competitive "Poke-In" style versions. A stripped wire is inserted into the connector and pushes open a gate-style terminal that "traps" the wire. To unmate, a button-style lever on the housing top is pushed down to allow the wire to be disengaged.

With a profile height of just 2.65mm, Molex’s Lite-Trap connectors offer an ultra-thin profile to prevent shadowing in LED lighting applications.

Molex’s wire-removable Lite-Trap connector offers lower wire insertion force than similar types. It also offers a user-friendly latch that is easy for operators to engage and disengage, even without the use of a tool. These features combine to offer easy field assembly and removal if needed for trained or untrained operators.

Other features of the Lite-Trap connector include a housing design that accepts more insulation-length range than competitive designs. This provides more stable wire seating for electrical contact assurance. The dual-contact wire-trap clamp design provides further mating assurance.
