      Q:How do put 14g wire in these things.
      by|Apr 9, 2016

      Answer This Question

      A:  strip enough wire so that you can fold the wire over onto itself to make enough wire for the set screw to grip. Insert the wire so that wire is fully inserted. Once you have secured the wire with the set screw, give the wire a good tug; if it pulls out easily, then redo the above steps.

      gets the job done
      these are cheap and get the job done. At first like most I was not happy with quality since I wasn't able to keep my wires in place. But I think I found a method that should work for everyone. I cut about 3/4 of insulation, twisted the wire end and then bent it back half way. I inserted the bended end through the back of the banana plug, made sure it was fully seated. then I screwed it down tight. Did a quick pull and it stays put. I used 16awg speaker wire for this.

        Simple and easy to use once you have directions. As many have commented, these come without instructions. However YouTube is often the savoir. If you view this video, you will find an simple an effective way to assemble them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWwc-9H-86A The first time I purchased these I did not search the internet and ended up drilling the holes in the ends deeper to insert the wire. Today I assembled 8 ends in a very short time using 14 gauge wire, each successful the first try based on this video. The two best suggestions were inserting one banana plug in the large cross hole to hold the alignment while removing the screw. The second best tip which was rather obvious was to use a magnetic screw driver to make re-inserting the screw easier. I preferred fully removing the screw because I could see when the wire was in far enough to make sure the screw offered a good grip. I would definitely purchase these again.

          worst on the market
          The hole for feeding the wire through is sealed off right at the tightening screw, so only a tiny piece of wire makes contact with the screw. The connection is not reliable.

          OK quality. Here is how I installed them.
          The reviews for the CE Tech banana plugs from Home Depot were decidedly mixed but I went ahead and bought a pack of ten (five plug pairs, perfect for my 5.1 speaker system less the subwoofer, which takes a separate special cable). Because of the reviews, I knew I was in for a little work. Here's what I did: Working one wire at a time, I stripped about three-eighths inch of insulation from the end of my speaker wire then tinned the wire with my soldering gun. When cool, I trimmed back the exposed tinned wire to about one-eighth inch. Looking in the wire end of the plug, I loosened the set screw until the wire would fit, slipped the tinned wire into the plug, and tightened the screw. The screw and plastic plug cover do not need to be removed; the set screw holds the cover in place when the plug is slipped over the wire. Also, you don’t want to drop that tiny screw. You need a wire stripper, wire cutter, soldering gun or iron with solder, and a small Philips screwdriver -- I used a #0 -- to make this work. After you do the first plug, it is easy to move along and finish the other wires. Since I was changing over from Monster Cable angled pin plugs (they were horrible) to banana plugs on existing speaker wires, I worked on one wire in each pair at a time so I didn't make a mistake with the polarity. The CE Tech banana plugs are not the greatest quality but they were in stock in my local Home Depot and I didn't have to order them and wait for delivery by mail. Radio Shack lists banana plugs on the website but the are solder-only (no set screw) and were not in stock at my local store. Its a shame: Radio Shack used to be great for basic electronic items like this.

          These plugs seem to do the job just fine! 14ga wire was a bit of a tough fit however.

          Only a buck each, what did you expect?
          These are inexpensive connectors, near the bottom of the line. The price per unit reflects that quality. Still, they can do the job if you know how to use them. First of all, do not strip the wire ends if you plan to use the set screws. The screws can push through the insulation just fine unless you are using something like Teflon-insulated wire. Make sure to tighten the screws as much as possible to make sure you have firm contact with the wire. If you want a more secure connection, strip the ends and use solder, but use only enough to do the job and solder on the side away from the screw hole. Don't fill the "pot" with solder or you probably won't be able to use the screw to fix the insulating sleeve in place. I doubt that any of these methods will "provide a more reliable connection" than bare wires, as stated on the package, since the main connection is still a pressure fit. The core metal in these is steel, not copper, so they will rust quickly despite the "gold" plating. The extra holes in the connector make it easy to "stack" these if you are using more than one on a socket.

          decent quality but horrible product support
          First, the plugs feel like decent quality for the price and fit perfect in the speaker port. But, this product has zero product support, instructions or suggestions. Normally not an issue, it just shows they dont care. Plus, the one locking screw is poor and wouldnt secure my 18 gauge wire at all. The website doesnt even say you get 10 plugs! FIX...to secure your wire , strip 1/4 inch of wire and bend the copper wire backward (see pic) this will allow the screw to catch the plastic shielding and lock the wire. Minus 3 stars for screw and product support

          Plugs not worth your time
          These are terrible. Despite tightening the screw they will slip right off the copper wire.

          Nice plugs
          10 pack, 5pairs, perfect for a 5.1 type setup. The screw allows for a very secure connection. I've spend more money on a single pair that felt much less secure. Also thanks to several reviews for detailed explanation for proper usage.
