Asked by: billy
There really isn't a great answer. I'm an employee that just had this experience. My thoughts after multiple years in the pro audio filed is that they are almost geared towards creating a "TIP/SLEEVE or TS connection type of thing for a more modular way of setting things up. Physics of the connections with these are not good though. Recommend doing an A/V BNC termination instead. just as easy, more control, more connections.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Figured it out. Love them Should have included instructions but they seem to work great in either of two ways I use them. First off and this is probably not original design, I have 10 gauge Linn cable that is too thick for standard plugs. With these I can insert the stripped wire in from the side and tighten the main screw down like an oversized setscrew. Cable hangs down from plug nicely. No difference in sound from the Linn plugs I had soldered on before. For light gauge wire you can use them as intended I think. Strip an inch of wire and insert into hole in end of setscrew which should be backed out enough to barely clear side hole. Bend strands of wire back over end of screw and then turn barrel to tighten the screw and wire against top of plug pin. I was able to tighten banana pin into barrel with thin pliers grabbing solid ring next to barrel. Working very well so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible. Best I can see, leave a long bunch of copper inside, crush it when you screw the two halves together, and hope. I hate products requiring hope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I read some reviews that struggled with these banana plugs. My 15 year old daughter put them together and she has never seen anything like this in her life. They didn't insert all the way into the CE Tech Wall Plate as I was hoping, but they did engage. This was for a church project and it turned out looking great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This worked Strip a small amount of wire (maybe a 1/4") and insert the bare portion into the big hole through either side of the barrel and tighten. When checked with an Ohmmeter, it provides a solid connection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ZERO STARS! ZERO STARS This is a cheap knock-off of the Monoline plugs. HOWEVER, the MLs have 1/4" bare to wrap the wires around. These are all threads, which is why every review says install is horrible. HD needs to replace this simple product causing so much frustration. Do NOT buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from CE Tech Banana plugs Poor design there is no obvious way to bind the wires in the connector. And I can see a lot of other reviews citing the same problem. It didn't occur to me to read the reviews 1st. I'm surprised Home depot still sell them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbelieveable I am an audiophile since 1960. I've connected banana plugs to more speaker cables then I can remember. Never had a problem, never needed instructions. But these plugs do not come with instructions when it's most needed. Not obvious how they go together. They're going back tomorrow on principle.
