Title: Electronic connector sealing system

Abstract

An electronic sealing system for sealing and shielding an electronic connector from detrimental liquid cleaners that are applied with or without pressure. The electronic sealing system includes a U-shaped holder, a gasket frame, a gasket, a top plate, and several fasteners. The U-shaped holder cradles the electronic connector. The gasket frame abuts a top side of the holder and includes an aperture. The gasket engages a portion of the connector via the aperture. The top plate abuts the gasket frame opposite the holder so as to encapsulate the gasket over the aperture and hence over a portion of the electronic connector. The fasteners secure the U-shaped holder, gasket frame, and top plate together so that the electronic connector is secured with the holder and so that a portion of the electronic connector is sealed via the gasket.
