We use D-sub connectors on a few products we make. On one product the receptacles are mounted to a plastic plate with standard jack screws. However because of the thickness of the plastic plate the screws stick out proud of the surface of the connector shroud itself by about 0.07". Everything I've seen before has the anchors flush to the tip of the connector, or at least close. Walking around the shop and observing various D-sub connectors corroborates this. I tried to find some documentation on this but came up empty handed. Can anyone point me to a spec or standard indicating the proper relationship between the anchor and connector? Or can someone confidently say that they should be approximately flush?
