90⁰ backshells allow for a more compact cable bend than a conventional 90⁰ heat shrink boot while still providing good mechanical protection and EMC performance. Right angle Backshells are frequently used with cable plugs that are connecting to the front of equipment, where the compact dimensions allow the cable to be kept away from the equipment while in use. It is common to use the same teeth that mesh with the teeth on the back of connectors to allow the connection angle to be set or ‘clocked’ in a convenient position, helping to direct the cable away in exactly the desired direction.
