Proposed herein is a spring-tab mechanism that can be provided for Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectors that can provide an improved electrical bond between USB connectors/housings for previously designed products that are already in-use/deployed in commercial environments. The electrical bond that can be created via the spring-tab connectors proposed herein may create a stronger hold than standard USB connectors that are typically used in products, which can help to prevent accidental and/or undesired removal of a USB device when it is in-use.
