Product Description

Ocelot Open-Screw Banana Plugs

Ensure the best connection between your speaker cable and your receiver unit with these open-screw banana plugs. Banana plugs also ensure that you'll only have to wire your speakers up once, rather than stuff the unterminated speaker cable into your receiver and hope that it never comes out.

Easy To Install

Banana plugs make installing speakers much easier. Instead of unscrewing the connectors in the back of your receiver and wrapping the speaker conductor around those screws, utilize the banana plug holes with these banana plugs.

Attaching the banana plug to the speaker itself is easy. These open faced banana plugs allow you to simply feed some of the bare copper conductor into the hole and clamp it down with the screw.

Daisy Chain

Each banana plug also features a female banana plug connection on the bottom, allowing you to connect multiple speakers from a single speaker output. This serves as a splitter, allowing you to mirror the sound as many times as necessary.

How to Install Open-Screw Banana Plugs
  • How to Install Open-Screw Banana Plugs
  • Unscrew the bottom of the banana plug.
  • Feed the wire through the hole in the center of the bottom screw OR feed the wire through hole in the side so the speaker wire conductor makes contact with the top of the plug.
  • Screw the bottom of the banana plug back up till it tightens down on the speaker wire, securing it to the banana plug.
  • Your speaker wire is now ready for connection.

I looked all over for banana plugs that were of decent quality, did not require crimping or soldering, and did not cost a fortune. Stop looking and get these.
What's really funny is you can get ones similar to this for $.01 from other vendors, but then they ding you $5 per plug for shipping (no, not per shipment or per pair, per plug).

The photos are accurate. The base and the tip are screws, so maybe they make smaller tips? Regardless, they don't come loose. I guess you can feed skinny wire through the bottom like the picture shows, but I used the hole in the side for my 12 gauge wire. It fit with no problems and I snipped off the excess after screwing it down. My receiver is more suited to the skinny tips, but I was able to make these fit with no real problems. If you have a 5.1 system, then this set is all you need. You won't find a better deal (WITH shipping only $20).

Originally Amazon showed this as taking over three weeks, but ordered it late Saturday night, and it arrived via US Mail in less than a week.

I highly recommend the seller and the product.

I like to see all sides of a story, so I made sure to read several low rated reviews in addition to all the high ones. And after reading the lower rated reviews, then buying and installing these myself, I am honestly a little confused, because these plugs are a fantastic deal.

Are plugs by Monster or GLS, also sold here, easier and more idiot proof to install? Having used those in the past I can say they are. I'd expect nothing less given they are double or more the cost of these plugs. Take a fairly typical 7.1 speaker cable install, which requires 12 total plugs (14 depending on your subwoofer). A top-rated set of Monster plugs on Amazon, for example, would set you back $50 for 12 plugs. With this set you get 24 plugs for $20. I can't speak for other Amazon customers but saving $30 for plugs that do the exact same thing and require just a tiny bit more effort/attention to attach is a no-brainer in my book. Even the GLS plugs are $50 for 20.

Here's the trick to installing these (my apologies if this seems obvious to you):

First, realize that out of the bag the screws are a little loose, including the screw that holds the plug. Fortunately, these screws work like every other screw has since their invention, in that when you turn them, they get tighter or looser. Do so; it'll add maybe 5 seconds per plug to the installation time.

Now, unscrew the bottom piece, that you stick the wire through. You'll notice near the top the threads stop and there's bare metal - this is the part you want your speaker wire to overlap on to.

These banana plugs took my 12 gauge stranded wires and made a solid connection. I purchased them through Amazon, and the shipment from SewellDirect.com was prompt. I am pleased with the purchase and have recommended them to friends. The gold parts appear to be solid brass, and the barrel is probably plated steel. These are a great value when purchased as a 24 pack from Sewell. Some vendors are selling them below cost and scamming with ridiculous shipping charges. Those low price scammers had me needlessly concerned about quality.

The banana plug male tip has 6 flexible (compressible) splines to fill the female amplifier connector jack and get good contact. I remember a review I read about ONKYO receivers and I will concur. My old ONKYO TX906 (about 1991 vintage) has female banana jacks that are so small that these Sewell plugs cannot be inserted. However, the Sewell banana plugs work fine on my ONKYO TX8555 that was purchased in about 2008. They also work great in my DENON AVR-2801 from about 2001.

The forward gold plug tip (call it part A) screws into the silver barrel (call it part B). The aft gold knurled end (call it part C) screws into the other end of the silver barrel and secures the colored ring (red or black). That part C knurled end piece is nearly 3/4" long, and is drilled through. The part C, aft end wire entry has a chamfer, a short cylindrical section, and a small shoulder that takes up the first 3/16". My 12 gauge wire could be pushed into the smallest diameter through hole, and is nicely secure. If you had heavier wire or extra thick insulation, you could still get a nice looking assembly by bottoming the insulation out on the shoulder.

I used the rear/aft wire insertion method rather than through 1 side hole and out the other.

This is a great little device, easy to add to your speaker cable and once in, it makes your life so much easier.
I had to move my 5:1 wires around after I bought a new receiver as the cables were not labeled and it has been 10 years since initial installation.

Of course when I wired my speakers, they were crossed (right/left, center) and also out of phase, it was effortless to just move them around, if I had to wired it in, it would have taken me a very long and frustrated time to do this.

I give it 4 stars only because it is bit cheaper quality then other brands, you need to make sure your wire is long enough to thread in and bend over and tighten it down, make sure you also tighten the top piece as it is also screwed in and it can be loose and cause intermittent connection.
