An electrical connector assembly includes an electrical connector unit (11) to be mounted onto a printed circuit board (11), a supporting member for supporting the electrical connector unit, and a pick up device (12) attachable onto the electrical connector unit. The supporting member includes a supporting portion (112) extending from one side of the electrical connector unit, with the supporting portion defining a supporting surface (1121) resting on the printed circuit board. The pick up device includes a balance section (122) defining a balance surface (1221) extending parallel to the supporting surface such that when the pick up device is attached onto the printed circuit board, the balance surface of the pick up device is operable to be rested on the printed circuit board so as to counterbalance force torque caused by introduce of the supporting portion.
