                  Radio shack is a self-help store. So why do you use technical terms without defining them? What is a 'terminal plate'... which is positive, which is negative,,,,, real basic stuff that is very necessary to understand what is going on.

                  You must use flexible cable sized to fit the strain relief sleeve.Crimp the ground clamp around the cable sheath.To get extra support,I took a piece of bare #12 solid copper wire and clamped it on the strain relief near the end.This prevents movement of the cable in the sleeve.

                        I own a custom home theatre installation company and we find ourselves trying to find inexpensive solutions for todays ever changing technologies. We use these to solder onto shielded cat5e for audio interconnections thru an entire house. We have had a few of the center conducter pull out when trying to seperate them to make the connections, but what do you expect....their cheap. Thru the last 10 years I have used thousands of them with good results.

                              After all the negative reviews I was skeptical about buying this plug. My son's car has RCA cables running from the stereo to the amp mounted on the back seat of the car and the center conductor on one of the plugs broke. Instead of running an entirely new cable I decided to try and repair the cable using this RCA plug. I found out that by taking your time you can do a quality repair. To remove the strain relief cover grasp the plug with both hands. Hold the center conductor with your left hand while GENTLY pushing down on the strain relief while pulling straight out. This will separate the strain relief from the body without twisting or bending the terminal plate. The package tells you to hook the ground wire first but, I found it was better and easier to connect the center conductor first. Strip off enough insulation to have an adequate amount of wire. Twist the wire. Loop the wire around the stem screw as close as possible to the insulation and tighten (this will prevent shorting of center conductor to terminal plate). Next, insert ground wire through the hole on the terminal plate and lay entire cable assembly on terminal plate and loop ground wire back under the crimping lugs. Once everything is in place, crimp the lugs onto the cable assembly and grounding wire. After everything is secure and tight, use finger nail clippers to trim excess wire around stem screw and then trim grounding wire. Push the strain relief back onto the finished connector and you are good to go. The key to producing a quality connector is to take your time and ensure the center conductor is mounted as close to the stem screw as possible with very little wire exposed. BTW, I am not a professional car stereo installer. I am an Electronics Technician of over 20 years by trade and I found these plugs to be very easy to work with and will provide a quality connection if you take your time.

                                    When the metallic tip is pulled out of the plastic casing, the positive tip often fall off, and youy then have to weld it back on. This connector is a piece of garbage.

                                      Comments about RadioShack Phono Plug (6-Pack):

                                      I agree with the previous reviewer that flimsy connector is almost certainly damaged removing it from the rubber like strain relief portion. There is a ridged ring inside the strain relief that ensures you need to take it off at an angle, this causes the shield to be crushed/distorted and bends the inside terminals. I also attempted to pull the two piece item straight apart. When doing so it behaves like a “Chinese Finger Cuff”, and stays firmly connected. My greatest success so far has been to ruin one connector getting it out of the strain relief, and use an x-acto or similar to cut the strain relief off an undamaged connector. Of course, this means that you have to throw away half of the pack of six. I will revert to buying the Radio Shack brand of Solderless RCA connectors, 4 to a pack. Those have a body that is connected to the strain relief by a threaded joint. And, can be easily soldered.Lastly, if they shipped dis-assembled with a warning that it was a single assebly product, could not be disassembled, it would be usable.[...]

                                      Of all the available RCA plugs, this's my favorite. For small OD cable, a piece of heat shrink tubing permits secure clamping of the cable in the plug body. I have not experienced the previous problem(s) related. For totally secure attatchment, super glue may be used upon final assembly. That said, all of this type of "field install" RCA plugs have their differing disadvantges.

                                      This connector is poorly manufactured. The ground shield comes off when trying to remove the connector from the strain relief, and the design of the wire attaching point can lead to potential shorts. The shield is also easily distorted making for potentially unreliable connections.
