In this article, we provide the weak version of ensconcement which characterizes an interesting family of Shielded base contractions. In turn, this characterization induces a class of AGM contractions satisfying certain postulates that we reveal here. Finally, we show a connection among the class of contractions given by our weak ensconcement and other kinds of base contraction operators. In doing so, we also point out a flaw in the original theorems that link the epistemic entrenchment with ensconcement (which are well established in the literature), and then we provide two possible solutions.
