EESeal® EMI Filter Installation For DSbub Connectors
The design and construction of EESeal® FilterSeals makes them easy to install by hand, without special tools, but care is needed to ensure proper insertion. Most EESeals are equally easy to extract; view extraction instructions.

EESeal® EMI Filter Installation For DSubminiature Connectors
Which side is UP?
If your EESeal® has a blank side with no printing on it, the blank side is up and visible once the EESeal® is inserted.If both sides of your EESeal® have printing on them, then the side with the EESeal® logo is facing up and is visible after the EESeal is inserted.
Orient the EESeal®.
With the correct side up, orient the EESeal® so its pinholes roughly correspond to the corresponding pins in the host connector. Most EESeals® have at least pin 1 (or pin A) marked to assist you in this orientation.
PARTIALLY Insert the EESeal®.
Slightly cup the EESeal® so that Pin 1 (or pin A) can be easily slipped onto the corresponding pin in the host connector. Double-check that the correct EESeal® pinholes are going over the correct pins in the connector. Gently use your fingertip to push the EESeal® down just over the head of the pin, no further. Now simply press the rest of the pinheads into the EESeal® pinholes in the same manner. To make the EESeal® go on easily, notice that the EESeal® is intentionally oversized, so your pressing action should be towards (not away from) the pins already completed. Do not attempt to push the EESeal® down any further than just over the heads of the pins.
Fully Insert & Seat the EESeal®.
First, confirm that you can see the tip of each and every pin slightly poking through its corresponding EESeal® pinhole (if not, complete step 3 before proceeding). The EESeal® can be fully inserted and permanently seated by simply mating the connector pair. Now check the EESeal® to ensure it is flat at the bottom of the connector, with no folds along its edge or interior. It should appear like it belongs there. If you notice anything unusual, please contact us.
