What is Through Hole SKEDD mounting type?

SKEDD is a type of contact designed by Wurth Electronics. This is a form of Push in contacts, however due to the design they offer 4 points of contact with the PCB and are removable and reusable. Here are some images of the IDC version of the SKEDD contact and the contact points on your PCB Board.
