Default 3rd & 4th term on snap-in caps

I'm using Panasonic TUP caps on a board I made. Terminal 3 & 4 do not have any connection to either plus or minus, but the printing on the cap say do not connect. It was easiest to lay out the board whil making connections to these pins. Will this cause any problems?

Since you're making your own boards, make pads for mounting these with no traces going to them.

I was with the same doubt. Then I looked at google with the cast snap on capacitors, and I found this data-sheet.


inside, you can see that this capacitor have extra terminals for a better assembly montage/support.

I rope this information helps you also.
