The wires on the relays sent are all 18ga, not 14 and 18 as stated, the insulation on 3 of the wires is thicker giving the illusion of thicker wires. Once you strip them you see the real wire size. I sent the seller an email to inform them just in case their supplier has switched things up without them noticing. After a fairly quick reply (posted below) I got nothing back from them and the misleading description is unchanged.

These sockets are unsuitable for anything over a few amps. Save your money and buy ones that are actually usable.

Emails exchanged. Note I did not ask for a refund, check seller's refund policies to see why.

":On stripping the wires for installation I found that the wires are not even as big as some scrap 16ga wire I had left over from another project. In fact all 5 wires are the same size, only the power/load wires have much thicker insulation to give the appearance of heavier wire. I don't know if your supplier is messing with you or what the deal is but your description is completely wrong and these are useless as far as I'm concerned. No point in returning them as packaging and shipping would be as much as the parts were in the first place.

I just figured in case you were unaware you should be made aware so you can change the description.

Military Electronics Technician, here's the deal, wire are too small diameter to carry current, you will lose power, not a good match up for the #12 gage wire I am using for Fiamm horns.
After waiting the full ship estimate time to get this item, (the Amazon photo seems to show larger size wires than came on this item), I pitched for my own safety (could cause over heating of wires).

INSTEAD I will use crimp connectors 10-12 gage, female, with fully insulated covers. A dab of black silicone RTV will keep them in place. Oh, yes, the connector hardly squeezes onto the FIAMM RELAY, takes a channel lock pliers to push them together. Not a perfect world for this connector. :(

The unit itself is fine, but the pass through wires are a bit small for the rating of 30/40A. I would expect to see at least #10 wires.

This relay and plug is not worth your time...The description (Three 12" heavy 14 ga. power wires and two 12" 18 ga. coil control wires.) is not accurate at all. The wires are 6" at best and the wires are no where near 14 gauge. They appear to be all the same size (18 Gauge) with the main feed wires having thicker insulation to appear that they are larger gauge wires. I would be hesitant to run more than 15 amps through this relay. I am ASE certified in automotive electronics and I will not be using this for my vehicle.

These sockets arrived with 5 short 18ga wires. (labeled on the wires) Not the "Three 12" heavy 14 ga. power wires and two 12" 18 ga. wires" as advertised. I was planning on using these sockets to connect (+/- 45 Amp) compressors via high Amp relays. I'm glad I looked closely at the tiny gauge wires wrapped in deceptively thick insulation. Otherwise these sockets would have caused a fire.

I bought two of these interlocking relay sockets for an alarm I was installing. I didn't have to have them interlock but it makes for a cleaner installation. Once two sockets are interlocked I found it very hard to insert the two relays. The sockets are too close together once interlocked. I feel the manufacturer should increase the distance between the sockets once interlocked. I used Tyco relays. The sockets were so close that the relays won't go straight down into the socket. So instead of having the relay bodies inserted at an angle with a lot of pressure on them and the interlocking grooves, I just left them as singles (not interlocked). The sockets are good quality, but the interlocking feature doesn't work well with Tyco relays. I had another brand relay lying around. I checked its dimensions and it was even bigger than the Tyco. So in summary, next time I would buy the non-interlocking version if cheaper, as that is how I ended up using them anyway.:-(

got 3 of these to wire up an analog way of getting the radio in my truck to stay on till the door is opened.

my only beef with this is that 3 of the wires are around 8 gauge, and 2 are 10/12 gauge. not a huge issue, and it's meant for wiring up lights and such, but in my case i wish i had known before hand.

the socket is really snug, which is nice, i was worried it would feel really cheap, but it's the opposite.

the wires themselves are probably around 10" long, so plenty long enough to splice into/ wire your own whatever with.

UPDATE
I did find one issue with these actually.
when i first got them, i plugged them all into the relays to make sure they were snug and everything, then i put the project on a shelf until i finish another one.
well, I was diddling with them and noticed something. I can NOT for the life of me get them OFF the relay! I tried prying, I tried pulling, I tried wiggling. these will NOT budge.
Now take that as you will, I will never worry about these falling apart on me when I stick them in the dash of my truck, but if the relay takes a poot, then it's going to get intresting
