Electronic components are basic electronic element or electronic parts usually packaged in a discrete form with two or more connecting leads or metallic pads. Electronic Components are intended to be connected together, usually by soldering to a printed circuit board (PCB), to create an electronic circuit with a particular function.

We have a customer who is using a standard USB Type A Connector on their assemblies. They don't want to add a housing to the assembly, but want to shield the metal USB connector housing from potential shorting with surrounding electronics within their application. I have called around to Kycon and Tyco and they have never seen any kind of snap on plastic cover or a plastic housed USB type A Connector. So my question is what do you guys suggest that will be "pretty" to cover this usb connector with to prevent shorting? They are currently sticking double sided spongy tape on it and they don't like the way it looks. The only thing I can think of that is relatively simple is kapton tape.
