An axially mating quick connect-disconnect electrical connector comprising a plug member and a jack member is provided. A split spring ring having a circumferential notch therein is carried by the plug member in a peripheral groove as the connective member and when the two connectors are joined the ring is compressed reducing the diameter of the ring and the periphery of the ring is compressed toward the notch resulting in a dual compression of the ring which is mated in an inner, circumferential groove in the jack and provides the necessary connection forces between the plug and jack members while providing for connection or disconnection of the two connectors using less force than typically needed for such connectors.
