              I don't know why anyone says this is a bad product?! After reading the reviews I was almost afraid to buy it, but knew the reviews are usually wrong! This is Super Easy, if you can't do this (without solder) you can't tie your own shoelaces!! LOL

                    Comments about RadioShack Solderless RCA Plug (4-Pack):

                    I used these for some sub cables in my car that had gotten pretty beaten up. I was a little apprehensive because of the other reviews here but there is nothing wrong with these plugs and they are actually well designed. It took a minute to figure out how to use them but by the second one, I had the method down and it was really simple. I recommend removing the screw completely and wrapping the ground wire around it a couple of times before screwing it back in tight. The hot wire is pretty self explanitory, just wrap it and crimp. Worked perfectly with no soldering. PS, another reviewer suggested that a diagram be added to the packaging and it has; there are now some instructions and a diagram on the bag.

                          These connectors require soldering, period. That is why the title is misleading. Over the last 30 odd years, any (all) of the connectors that I have assembled required soldering. Any other means of assembly ended in a failure (e.g.; inconsistent circuit, open circuit, shorted circuit, etc.) & needed rework.
                          This type of connector is just as difficult to assemble as any other type of connector, due to the soldering. I use the screws to help hold the wiring in place during the soldering. Or if the screw(s) is in the way, I use the holes to help as well. With some shrink tubing to cover/finish the job, and it is "golden".

                            Even after reading the other reviews in the parking lot out front of the store, I purchased these. I specifically asked the clerk if it would work for my application and he said yes it would work for my 18 gauge speaker wire. After coming home and prying the plugs apart, which felt like I was going to break them, I did notice the tiny hole for the ground and the tiny screw for the conductor. Even if I got the wires to stay put, by the time I'd get them back together I would not have trusted that they stayed in place. Especially without adding any insulation between to keep the wires from touching. I will now eat the [$] cost of these and leave them in a drawer to eventually be tossed out.

                                Comments about RadioShack Solderless RCA Plug (4-Pack):

                                The primary issue I had with this is the packaging contained no specifications for wires or instructions, and worse they came pre-assembled!

                                Had they been in a 2 section bag with sheath and connector separate they wouldn't need instructions or wire info as you could easily see -- but without you're likely to break at least one just trying to figure it out. Even a tiny diagram would have helped :P

                                If you're here because you bought some of these here's a quick list:

                                1) Find the hollow side of the sheath (side where the circular metal part separates)

                                2) Pull it apart with the hollow side facing you while bending the middle towards you gently (like a fortune cookie) until it pops a bit and slides out -- if you do it the other way it's almost impossible as it digs into the sheath.

                                3) Put the sheath over the wire first, then unscrew the tiny screw a little, wrap the tip wire around it once and screw it down tightly, the second wire should surround the tip wire (if you used the right A/V wire type!), just gather the threads and twist it neatly and put it through the hole in the metal post then wrap it around and up between the teeth.

                                4) Put the insulated cable between the teeth and squeeze the teeth shut with plyers (around, not into the cable) until they meet, then squish them down onto the wire until they grip into it a bit, and slide the sheath back over it.

                                Though a simple picture on the packaging or separate parts could have saved all those words ;)

                                          I'd be amazed to see one of these devices actually connected to a wire pair. It appears to be physically impossible. My conclusion is that this device is useless and should be pulled from the shelves.

                                                The first one came apart as I was removing the outer cover. The tiny center screw would not handle even the smallest wire. I tried on a 18 ga. speaker wire. I couldn't get it to stay connected. Don't waste your money on these. I wouldn't even give this one star....
