    1 PAIR OF High-Quality Gold Plated Speaker Pin Plugs, Pin Screw Type

    Pin plugs make speaker installation a breeze. They are designed for use with amplifiers or speakers fitted with either traditional binding posts or spring clip connectors. Not only is it easier to make the connection on the back of your amp, it is safer, with no chance of stray wire strands creating a short across contacts.

    These high quality plugs are the open screw type and can accept bare wire, spades, or other banana plugs. They are sized to fit speaker wire from 12 to 18 AWG. Each pair comes with one plug color coded red and the other coded black, for easy polarity identification.

    The plug body is made of brass, which is then plated with gold to help prevent corrosion and ensure smooth connections.


    • Can accept bare wire, spades, or other banana plugs
    • Can accept 12 to 18 AWG speaker wires
    • Grooved pins prevent slippage
    • Color coded black/red rings for maintaining proper polarity
    • Secure, positive contact with binding posts
    • Corrosion resistant, 24K gold plated brass plug
    • Each order includes ONE pair (2 plugs total)

    The following video shows the differences between the various types of banana plugs and includes a demonstration of how to install each type.

    Will these work with Monoprice 8247 speakers?
    A shopper on Feb 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The 8247 has spring type connectors meant for bare wire. I would not recommend rigid pins for that application.

    Monoprice speaker pin plugs
    Very good quality pin plugs intended for insertion in most low cost speaker terminal blocks. Gold plated and knurled body. Color coded for proper polarity identification. Screw binding of wire inserted 90 degrees from plug axis. My only complaint is that the total length is slightly excessive and makes for a bulky protrusion from the back of the speaker - otherwise great construction.

    Great product for the price.
    I can now use slightly larger speaker wire with my older receiver. Happy with product. Simple to use just make sure you insulate the outside when done.

    PROS: -Works well

    CONS: Need heat shrink tubing to cover the outside when done. Didn't have a heat gun or hair dryer so I had to get one. Not a fault of the product though.

    Good banana plugs
    After fiddling with this for a little while I was able to use 12G Monoprice speaker wire with these for my rear surround speakers I put the 12G speaker wire through the bottom end (not the side as some may have done), then brought a little out from the side to secure the 12G speaker wire. Then used black and red electrical tape to secure everything and provide shielding (don't waste your time with heat shrink tubing).

    PROS: Good quality. Works w/12G speaker wire

    CONS: Took some time to figure out

    Great plugs for speaker connection
    These plugs are best for connecting large-guage wires to small-guage spring-type speaker connections. I wouldn't use them for connecting to the back of your amp, banana plugs are better suited for this. Yes, these do allow side entry for the wire, which is why I chose them -good for limited space in-ceiling installation. The overall length of the plug is comparable to other banana plugs, which may be a consideration in extreme limited space situations. Note that the pins are not flexible. Strongly recommended, and wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

    good value
    I used these to connect my sub to my ancient receiver which has no sub output and has the suboptimal clip type speaker jacks. Banana plugs can "stack" into these to connect the sub in addition to the main front speakers to the main jacks.

    PROS: Well built for the price, versatile, problem solver for old receivers.

    CONS: Can short, need to insulate if they might touch each other.

    Seems like a good product, but didn't use them
    I bought these to use in the back of my Denon AV receiver, using 16AWG OFC by Rocketfish. I didn't end up using them because I found that when inserting them into the spring-clips in the back of the receiver, they would not insert deeply enough.

    I don't believe this to be a product defect, hence the 5 star rating.... more that the spring-clips on my receiver didn't allow for enough of the pin to enter and hold for it to be a solid connection. I could only get the pin into the first notch, and then because of the weight of the plug and the wire, it dangled and swayed in the spring-clip. I felt it very likely that they would swing into each other and make contact (short) at the back of my AV receiver, so I took them off.

    PROS: Inexpensive, does what it is meant to do.

    CONS: Perhaps the pin is too long?

    I used 16AWG OFC wire by Rocketfish, I could not get the wire up through the center of the plug, finding that the jacket for the wire was too thick. So I inserted the wire in the side and screwed down upon the wire. This clamp-type of mechanism is tenuous at best, sometimes just moving the cable into position I found that the wire pulled a bit out of the clamping screw.

    I was impressed with the quality and operation of these plugs. For the price, I don't think they can be beat, and I did a lot of comparison shopping before purchasing these. Also, all of the items I purchased were carefully packed and shipped and arrived quickly.

    Great solution to spring clips
    Between the weight, finish, and the threading, there's clearly a high level of build quality consistent with other Monoprice products. As the title says, I'm using these with spring clips on some older receivers/speakers. Only drawback I've found to date is that the pins are a bit long.
