Quick connects for LOR PC kits

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a "secret source" for crimp-on female quick connects? I'd prefer the fully-insulated kind vs. the kind that just has the stem insulated, but I'm open to sources for both.

All Electronics has the semi-insulated kind for 50/$2.50. Might end up going that route even though I'd prefer fully insulated, as I need some other connectors I can get there as well...

Tim,

I ordered mine here http://circuitspecialists.com/prod.itml/icOid/7709

They are discontinuing the line so they are selling them in bags of 100 for $1.12 (288 bags in stock)

These are 3/16" (.187) wide connectors. I think the PC boards have 1/4" (.250) wide spades. Correct me if I'm wrong because I'll jump on the $1.12 per 100.

I got mine from Home depot which are the fully insulated ones made by Ideal for around 6-8 dollars per 100.

Me too. Nothing like just going to a store and coming out with what you need. (as opposed to ordering online and having to wait) ;)

Thanks all. I'm going to start with Home Depot -- I checked Lowes and they didn't have any bulk packs (and the small ones were something like $3 for 10...)

Otherwise I now have plenty of online sources thanks to everyone here (and on PC). Appreciate it...

Just another place for all....I'v been buying alot from Delcity. Extreamly fast shipping. Usally basic shipping gets to me 2 days after I purchase online. .03 - .04 cents per female connector depending on quanity. GREAT pricing on heat shrink tubing.

Cenote, which one are you buying because I only seem to see male ones for sale. Also are you using insulated ones or non insulated.

There is a tab on the upper conner to switch between male and female.

Using both, depending on app. Is actually cheaper to use bare medal ones, than use shrink tube over top half if you don't care about protecting the actual connection.

scratch home depot out off the quick connectors. Went there today and they only have the 10 pc for $3. They switched venders and wont be carrying the 100 pc anymore. any ideas for a local store that might carry 100 pc. lowes carries 10 pc.

Just to let every one know the information on MP3CAR web site is wrong, I found out the hard way...

After I received my order, I found out that these are standard female quick connector with "out" the insulation around them...



I emailed Mp3Car to let them know about there "false" information on their site...

12hrs later they emailed me back:

sales@mp3car.com

" You are 100% correct - we have issued you a 100% refund. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused. It seems there was a mix up in our product information. I do not think we have insulated quick connects.

I also bought them from Lowes and Home Depot last year. This year neither store is stocking in 100 count packages. I found them at the local ACE hardware for about $8 per 100.

Well I got lucky this past weekend. Went to a local flee market Sunday. Just happened that one of the vendors had bags of 100 count QC disconnect crimp on connectors for 1 buck each. These are the fully covered connectors.

Might try the same if you have a large flee market in your area.
