Publication number: US20180212351A1

Systems and apparatus are disclosed for an electrical connector for a removable tailgate. An example connector for a vehicle tailgate includes a body, a hyperboloid socket and dielectric oil. The example body defines a chamber and a split line extending from the chamber. The split line facilitates penetration of a hyperboloid pin into the chamber. The example hyperboloid socket is disposed in the chamber and aligned with the split line. The example dielectric oil partially fills the chamber to coat the hyperboloid pin to provide corrosion resistance for the hyperboloid pin.
