Optional brass "washers" lock onto the socket or terminal tail during the manufacturing process and contact the solder paste screened onto annular rings on the pc-board. When reflowed, the solder wets the lead and plated through-hole, leaving the balance of the tail solder-free for reliable mating with another socket.

As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
