Electrical connection devices and systems for the electrical interconnection of systems and components within an aerospace vehicle, such as a production airplane, are disclosed. A typical quick lock interconnect comprises a manually installed and coupled modular electrical connector. The connector receptacles may be designed to “snap” onto a structural support, such as a stamped and formed or extruded rail, providing an inherent electrical ground path. A typical quick lock production interconnect may be fabricated from thermoplastic materials and plated with a metallic finish to provide for electrical bonding and shielding. The connector device may also include a novel slide latch coupling mechanism that provides a positive visual indication of a fully coupled connector eliminating the need for specialized tools. The structural support may be part of an aircraft fuselage section where the plurality of electrical connector shells each support the one or more electrical conductors coupled between separate fuselage sections.
