    If connecting speakers in parallel, can these be used to come in from each side of the spring loaded connector?
    Jason M on Dec 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes., as long as you don't let them touch each other.
    Can the pins be bent 90 degrees without breaking? Need to shape them to fit on the back of a vintage amplifier.

    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not recommend doing so as there is a very high probability that they will indeed fail. I apologize for the inconvenience
    how do i get the pin to tighten onto the wire without slipping off?
    A shopper on Dec 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Unscrew the end closest to the narrow tip. Strip the stranded cable wire jacket about a 1/2 inch or so. Feed the wire into the fat (bottom) end. When the copper strands appear at the unscrewed end, gently fold the wire threads straight down all around the barrel of the base. Then screw the tip back over the bent down strands. (There's actually a video on the Monoprice site on how to do this.) The wire stays in the plugs pretty solidly.

    Work well but bulky
    These are quality connections. With help from monoprice's YouTube video on connecting speaker wire plugs, I did my own wires for the first time, and successfully (using monoprices 14AWG CL2 speaker wire). For any other first-timers, when fanning out the wire, do take care not to have the wire reach down the the threads. You'll know something's wrong when you can't get the connector to screw back together. That's part of the great build of these connectors when you're doing it right, it feels easy.

    My major complaint is that these connectors are too bulky for my speakers. Ironically, the speakers in question are monoprice's own budget 5.1 system (see my review for this item, item no. 8247). For the satellites, it is annoying that these plugs poke out below the bottom surface of the speakers, making setting the speakers on a flat surface impossible. For the center speaker, there's not enough space to even get these plugs into the terminals. It baffles me that these very plugs (or their open-screw counterparts) are what monoprice recommends for the speaker system. You'd do better to seek out plugs with flexible ends, which monoprice doesn't seem to make (why not?!?). I was a bit miffed at having to pay a fair chunk of change for flexible connectors at a local store, but saw no way around it and figured it wasn't too raw a deal for the low price I paid overall.

    PROS: Seem to be made to a high quality
    Facilitates fairly easy cable installation

    CONS: Too big to fit MP's own budget speakers

    nice plugs
    Overall these are nice, but I haven't found an application where these are better than the alternatives.

    I bought these thinking I would use them for speakers with spring clips. The pin plugs flop around in the spring clips, though, and I found that bare wire made a better and more secure connection.

    Putting the pin through the hole in a binding post and tightening it down might work, but banana plugs are more convenient. I'm left wondering what I can do with these.

    PROS: These are decent quality plugs.

    CONS: Monoprice's own 12-AWG copper wire doesn't easily fit. It requires shaving just a bit of insulation from the wire, or completely stripping the insulation where the wire goes into the barrel.

    Most uses will require additional insulation on the metal to prevent accidental shorts.

    I haven't found a use for them.

    Nice Plugs For My System
    The needle tip is what I needed for my speakers and receiver as they all have the spring loaded connectors. The tips are a little on the long side but what's nice about them is they have four groves in them. So I just took a pair of wire cutters and clipped off some of the excess length so they would go in farther. You have to make sure that you push the wire in a ways as otherwise it won't hold when you screw the bottom on. You have to watch out if the connectors are close together as they will short out your system if they touch, which I found out, as I also used them for the connections on my receiver. Found a solution however. Got some clear, 3/8" ID tubing from Lowes and cut pieces off and slid the connector ends into it. It takes some work (they're tight) but it worked like a charm. Nice thing about this is you can still see the color coded ring on the plug and you don't get it all sticky if you use electrical tape and then need to take it off.

    PROS: Real good quality plugs. The top tip and the bottom both screw off. Groves in the tip let the spring loaded connector grab onto it so it won't slide out easily.

    CONS: Need to make sure you push the wire in a ways otherwise it won't hold tight when you screw the bottom in.

    Good for price, but slight design flaw
    Unlike a banana plug harness, pin types can typically move around once plugged into a speaker. The exposed portion of the plugs can easily bump into each other shorting the speaker connection on speakers where the connector positions the positive and negative close together.
    This is easily remedied with some heat shrink insulator.

    PROS: Solid construction
    easy to swap from pin to banana plug tip

    CONS: Uninsulated exterior

    I bought these to use with their Premium 5.1-Ch. Home System (Product ID:10565). The connectors on the speakers are mounted at an angel. The base of these pins are too large to fully engage the terminals and ended up touching each other. I thought that if I could just slightly bend the pin I could get it all of the way in. No such luck, the pin snapped off. I ended up getting out my soldering iron and tinning the wire ends.

    Product is great, my amp, not so much
    These connectors are great, but my amp really didn't have the room to accommodate these connectors. I kept shorting the speakers and sending the amp into protect mode. These work great on your speakers though.

    Professional Quality over Local Retailer
    Compared to the offerings at the local hardware warehouse, these connectors are the best quality at an amazing price. I found myself in the middle of my project and realized that I had under ordered from Monoprice, so I ran down to the local orange hardware warehouse to pick up the couple pair I needed to finish the project. What I found there was terrible plastic connectors at $5.00 a pair. I refused to finish my project with these substandard products and returned to monoprice.com to order another package and wait on them to arrive. I got five pair from monoprice.com for less than 3 pair would have cost me locally and the quality is incredibly better. Monoprice products rock!

    PROS: Professional quality

    CONS: None
