      Comments about RadioShack Gold Series Banana Plug (2-Pack):

      Just want to answer to Ringo from Honolulu:
      Ringo: you should know how to use a LOCKING banana plug before writing a Negative review. (loosen the tip, insert the banana plugs in the amp/receiver terminals & screw until you have a tight fit !! which is nearly impossible to yank out.
      I usually don't buy Radio shack products but this item is good.
      It Needs Soldering of the bare wire, which in my case was a 12 gauge.
      Item practical & not bulky specially when used with a multi channel Surround receiver NOT having the standard dual banana plug terminals.

      (Details & Instructions should have been included in the Product package !)

      Comments about RadioShack Gold Series Banana Plug (2-Pack):

      My VERY LAST visit to Radio Shack! These banana plugs are garbage! Absolute garbage! They are almost 5mm in width (not the industry standard of 4mm), so they WILL NOT fit most high-end home theater A/V receivers like Yamaha, Denon, and so forth. I know! I foolishly bought over twenty pairs (at nearly $6.00 per plug!) for a deluxe surround sound system and I spent several hours meticulously soldering them, only to find out later that they DON'T EVEN FIT any mainstream receiver. Trust me, if you make the mistake of buying these, you'll regret it, and if you DO choose to buy them, by all means, check the fit on your amplifier before doing any soldering.

        Arguably the best bananas

            Comments about RadioShack Gold Series Banana Plug (2-Pack):

            These are the most versatile plugs, short of spades for the ultimate experience.

            They solder with great ease, a hole for high-silver solder (grab a butane torch and the solder too) was thoughtfully provided on the side of the sleeve.

            If you get a receiver with just pinholes for surrounds it will be no problem, just unscrew the top.

            Just about the best bananas. Gold does not melt off when heated.

              Comments about RadioShack Gold Series Banana Plug (2-Pack):

              This locking banana plug makes tight low-resistance connections for speaker cables. Speaker wire (up to 4mm; will hold 2 X 12 AWG wires)is crimped or soldered into back-entry pin which is then screwed into the banana plug. The banana plug expands locking it all together in the binding post. Works well on multi-channel amps with lots of speaker connections. They do not pull out easily.

                  Comments about RadioShack Gold Series Banana Plug (2-Pack):

                  Far more robust than a crimp or twist-on connection. The wires are soldered into the connector, then the banana plug is securely held into the receiver hole under tension. I suggest this connector to anyone.
