  1. The ornamental design for a vertical electrical connector, as shown and described.

This application is related by subject matter to U.S. Design patent application Ser. Nos. 29/331,017 filed on Jan. 16, 2009, now US Pat. No. D610,548; 29/330,990 filed on Jan. 16, 2009, now US Pat. No. D606,496; and 29/330,997 filed on Jan. 16, 2009, now US Pat. No. D606,497, and is further related by subject matter to U.S. Design patent application Ser. No. 29/345,790, filed Oct. 22, 2009, and U.S. Design patent application Ser. No. 29/345,808, filed Oct. 22, 2009.

FIG. 1 is a top, left, rear perspective view of a vertical electrical connector according to my design;

FIG. 2 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a rear elevation view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a front elevation view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a left side elevation view thereof; and,

FIG. 7 is a right side elevation view thereof.

The broken line shown in the drawing views is unclaimed subject matter and forms no part of the claimed design.

In a preferred embodiment, the nature of this product is a vertical electrical connector in the form of an electrical connector housing configured for retaining a plurality of electrical contacts.
