Jack commonly refers to a surface-mounted connector, often with the female electrical contact or socket, and is the "more fixed" connector of a connector pair. The related term "jack plug" commonly refers to a "less fixed" connector of a connector pair, often with the male electrical contact or pin, and is generally shortened to simply "plug."

Some connector styles may contain male (pin), female (socket) or both connection types. Therefore, the use of gender to describe a connector "jack" or "plug" is misleading at best and inappropriate. A jack is properly described as a connector that is designed to be mounted (fixed) on the surface of a bulkhead or enclosure.
