Hi all - would like your thoughts on this

I was issued a utility patent in August this year and I have a Continuation in Part going through review now.

My patent is a system of objects that connect together.  The real novelty of this patent is the fact that the objects connect to each other, not the method they use to connect.

That said - I have 5 or 6 claims each with a method of connectivity of these objects.
Let's say one claim is with latches, another claim is with complimentary-shaped interlocking sleeves, another claim is with hooks and springs.

If someone was to copy my exact system and have the same novelty of the connectivity between objects but use springs for connectivity instead of one of my claimed methods - would that be considered a patent infringement?

Thank you!
