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.

Questions and Answers
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.
PROS: Good quality. Works w/12G speaker wire
CONS: Took some time to figure out
PROS: Well built for the price, versatile, problem solver for old receivers.
CONS: Can short, need to insulate if they might touch each other.
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.
PROS: very nice and clean, metal,Pin Screw Type
CONS: everything is fine with this item but one thing bottom is heavy and big
that being said they touch one another causing my receiver to shut off
meaning its mental
