        Great connector for projects

            Comments about RadioShack 2-Position Male Interlocking Connector:

            These are great all around connectors. I have used them for years with 12V devices and made them a standard for interconnection.

            Take the radio out of the car and put it in the house on a power supply. These connectors make it easy.

            They are inexpensive and at 20A handle most hobby radio equipment. Need to plug in ham, gmrs, cb, scaner and some other accesories, no problem, just make a splitter or a distribution box. These connectors will not break the bank. (Just keep in mind the total current used so you don't blow a fuse)

            I usually cut off the mounting "wings". They are good to have if you need to mount them in an enclosure. But when clipped and used with heat shrink tubing, make neat in-line connections.

            Not sure if these are open standard but you can always find them in a local Radio Shack. Just make sure to get the matching 20A male and female connectors. (274-151, 274-154)

            Years ago, they were made of better quality plastic but these do well too.

                Comments about RadioShack 2-Position Male Interlocking Connector:

                RS used to carry a .093" connector that I have purchased in the past. Despite the description on the web-site, this is an 0.125" pin which, of course, won't interface with my existing connector that was purchased from RS in the past. This is especially irritating since I'm laid up from surgery and asked my wife to get this from RS based on what I read from the web-site. Way to go RS!!!

                    The RS webpage states that the crimp terminals are 0.093 inch. In fact, the package contains 0.125" crimp terminals. The package is correctly marked, however. The housing also is designed for 0.125" crimp terminals. Smaller 0.093" crimp terminals fall out. The website needs to be corrected.

                    High-current but poor design

                      Comments about RadioShack 2-Position Male Interlocking Connector:

                      Pros: the package stated this was rated for 20 amps

                      Cons: It could be designed better

                      This is a great little connector for high-current applications, but it doesn't know what kind of connector to be. I'm using it with a 20A blade fuse to make a quick disconnect for my power inverter.

                      There are plastic clips to mount this easily on a panel, as well as a locking tab to secure it in place. The problem I find is there isn't any insulator to prevent accidental shorting of the two pins. In my case, I wanted to make a portable battery pack so preventing shorts is critical.

                      If you need to have a quick-disconnect for high-draw devices, this is ideal. Just think about which connector goes where before you wire it up, and trim off the extra un-needed locking tabs for your application.

                      Comments about RadioShack 2-Position Male Interlocking Connector:

                      I used these for connecting wires in an automotive application. It had been a while since I had made up my own Molex connectors. There were no instructions included and I crimped all three tabs of the pin around the wire, only to find that the tiny tabs (the ones closest to the middle of the pin) are to be left alone because they are used to keep the pin from coming out of the connector when you disconnect it. I had to buy a new set once I figured that out. I found the second set had the male and female pins reversed, i.e. the male connector had female pins. Further, one of the new sets had a different pin design with the holding tabs connecting the pins together. I had to cut those tabs and trim them to fit into the connector. Once again, instructions would have been useful.
