You’ve done such a great job making your own electronic control panel that the last thing you need are those wires to get pulled out and frizzy. These fancy Panel-Mount Banana Jacks look good and work well. They will snugly hold onto any 4mm banana plug or cable, and have a colorful ring you can use to help identify and categorize connections.
Each plug has an M8 screw body with a washer+nut combination that can be used to secure it to a panel. The back has a large slug with a hole you can solder to.
Comes as pack of 5, you get one of each lovely color.
These Banana Plugs not only look great, they’re also solder-free and stackable! Banana plugs are often used on test equipment, tools, synthesizers and other electronic patch panels. Each connector is designed with bowed strips to provide secure and uniform contact between the plug and jack. Even after multiple insertions, the non-collapsing design stays true to form. The plug springs are nickel-plated Beryllium copper and will last for many many years and insertions.
Each plug has a small machine screw, when opened from the top you can stick a solid core or stranded wire into the side of the plug and then screw it back down. Then you can stack as many as you like to create complex wiring kits. So they’re great for any use.
