Contacts are normally closed to eliminate dependence on plastic to sustain contact.
Socket handle can be configured with closed contacts (on) when in the UP or DOWN position, and can be mounted on either the right or left side.
Sockets can be soldered into PCBs or plugged into any socket. Socket fits into Aries or any competitive test socket receptacle.
