An improved connector block comprises a molded main body portion having test pin and connection-effecting pin couplet fields orthogonally disposed therein. In service, as on a telephone central office main distributing frame, the block receives and terminates two wire groups (e.g., subscriber lines and switching equipment conductors), selectively establishing connections therebetween via couplet pin joining plug connectors. Internal conductors connect each cross connection implementing pin couplet to an appearance in the test pin field.

The connector block assembly reliably effects circuit interconnections employing minimal wire wrap junctions; may be readily and relatively inexpensively constructed; and may be flexibly and efficiently installed and utilized.
