    Can anyone tell me what this connector is called, along with the part it would plug into that is soldered to a PCB? I'd like to get some, but have not succeeded in finding any with the searches I have been doing. They should be the locking type. Thanks!

    What you show is called a 'Wire to Board crimp style' connector. The mate that goes on the PCB would be a header.

    Is there any marking on the housing that might identify the manufacturer? That would be the first step. Next would be to measure the pitch i.e. distance between pins and pin size. Then go searching - unfortunately there are a gazillion different connectors by lots of manufacturers. This one looks imported - maybe JST? Here's a link to a picture sheet from them. Digikey has JST. Maybe scan their site as well.

    Good luck.

    Thanks! "Wire to Board crimp style" were the words I was looking for. I'm not trying to match the item in the photo, I just want to get some in that style. Your link is helpful!
