from Nice at a priceI just put these on a guitar cable. They soldered up nicely and look sharp for a very reasonable price. Contact to the socket is tight and secure. As another reviewer noted, there is no cable strain relief, so I used two layers of shrink tubing. The first covering all the way over the contacts plus 1 1/2 - 2 inches of the jacket and the second about a half inch further up the cable covering the first. There was no issue in feeding the barrel over this combination. This seems to be stout enough for normal use. The only other suggestion would be a little Locktite when screwing on the barrel to keep it from backing off. When finished, these ends give your cable a sharp, custom look, for only a few sheckles more than the bargain basement ends.

from nice looking connector with a problemThis is an attractive, short barreled 1/4 TS plug for use with guitar cables etc.The problem is that the long metal bit that serves as the connection for the shield and the crimped strain relief is wimpy. It wont hold the crimp on larger diameter guitar cable. This makes for a very delicate connection as the shield solder point carries the load if the cable gets yanked. With a small diameter guitar cable, it may be possible to use hot melt lined heat shrink (for example: Parts Express part no. 080-114, make sure you get the right size for your cable diameter though) to cover the entire connector guts and cable. The cable plus heat shrink must be able to fit through the hole in the barrel of the connector.
