These ribbon cable mounting plugs are quite a rarity,  it is much more common to have a socket mounted to the cable with the corresponding plug soldered directly to a PCB.

They come in a number of different ways and with or without fixing lugs!

Types Available

40, 50, 60 and 64 way without lugs.

10, 14, 16, 20, 26, 30, 34, 40, 50, 60 and 64 way with lugs.

All are IDC Flat Ribbon Cable Boxed Header Plugs (IDC – Insulation Displacement Connector).

The drop down box above has all the connectors available grouped by ‘with or without lugs’ and the ‘number of contacts’

Select no. of ways ie contacts required, and whether you want fixing lugs or not.

These have a polarisation cut out to receive the ‘bump’ on a polarised socket, however it will of course mate with a non polarised no ‘bump’ socket
