          Comments about RadioShack 1/8" Stereo Panel-Mount Phone Jack:

          The worst thing about this component is the weak grip it has on the jack plug, it barely even makes a connection and is easy to wiggle loose. Another thing is the tiny soldering tabs make it nearly impossible to solder a piece of wire onto it without melting some of the plastic case and I doubt it can handle much power, anything over a couple of watts would be pushing it. One positive aspect might be the extra connections that disconnect when you plug in the jack which I suppose someone could use to implement some kind of jack sensing technology, but I have no use for this. The other 1/8" stereo panel mount audio jacks #274-249 seem like the better option.

                Its a jack.
                Now I don't understand why the low reviews based on that it doesn't fit on a breadboard or PCB well. Its a PANEL MOUNT, its designed to mount to the case, NOT the PCB. You are wrong, not the part.

                      Two flatscreen TV's had no audio out jacks, so I disassembled the TV's, and wired this jack into the speaker circuit, such that the speakers would disconnect when a 1/8 inch plug was inserted. That way, I could connect a subwoofer/satellite speaker set for better audio. The onboard speakers were too small for any bass response. Yes, I'm an electronics tech, so this was easy.

                            I'll probably eventually figure it out, but I have no idea how to read the circuit diagrams or which of the pins to solder the wires to. RS should make videos or written explanations for this kind of thing.

                                  I used this in my Canon remote shutter release. I panel mounted this, as it is what it is intended for. Easy to solder, and with the clear top you can visually verify the tabs.

                                  It will be problematic if you try to mount it to breadboard/protoboard, but it is not designed for that.

                                    According to the reviews, it is difficult to connect to a pref board and such. This product is supposed to be panel mounted, not perf board mounted. If you want to use this on a PCB like 2 of these people wanted, you are supposed to use wire to connect it and mount this connector on a panel using the screw mount.
                                    I have and am using multiple of this item and never had a problem.

                                        You have to get creative to mount this connector on a perf board, the pins are not in a standard .010" configuration. Keep a small drill bit and a pin vise handy - you'll need 'em.

                                              Since this jack is a closed circuit until you connect your 1/8 inch plug the 2nd out pins open making it a very useful jack for dual power source which I have done so twice on 2 different projects. I connect a 9 volt battery snap to the 2nd out pin and if the plug is inserted the circuit then opens the battery source and runs off the ac adapter. If the ac adapter is disconnected then the circuit closes and now the battery is connected to run your circuit.

                                              Very handy and versatile to use this jack as an dual ac adapter/ battery connector.
