An electrical connector comprises an elongated insulator block having a plurality of transverse channels extending around the front, upper and lower sides thereof and at least partially around a rear side thereof. A plurality of electrically conductive resilient contacts are disposed in the channels. Each contact has a generally C-shaped profile and a generally U-shaped projection in an intermediate portion thereof. Each contact is partially bifurcated on opposite sides of the intermediate portion along a longitudinal dimension of the contact, thereby defining upper and lower pairs of contact arms. The channels are contoured to substantially the shape of the contacts, including a generally U-shaped indentation slightly larger in dimension than the U-shaped projection to permit each contact to float in its respective channel.
