from These things rock!I bought these terminals, kind of skittish because of the price. My worries melted away when actually picked them up out of the box! THese suckers are bullet proof. You can tell they are CNC machined from a singular brass cylindrical prism. They are heavily plated and with the right touch, offer a TRUE 0/1 GA connection. YOu see, with most terminals, the contacting surface offers less surface of contact to ground, there by restricting the total guage of the circuit. IF that is the case, it turns your 0/1 GA wire into a fat 8 GA wire. WA WA WA... WIth these you dont have to worry. 16 Bucks gets you a pair of them. They have a thick allen screw that torques down the wire inside, so you don't need crimping equipment, you can re use them at your leisure and if you make a mistake when stripping the wire, you can undo it and try again. What they dont tell you is that they come with these clear 1" heatshrink pieces that you melt over the termination to keep out water and dirt. I love corrosion prevention! The only down side to these terminals is that the barrel portion of the terminal sits lower than the bottom of the ring portion, so you can't fix tem flat on a piece of metal. What i did to remedy the problem grabbed a few 1/4" washers with a 5/16" hole and stacked them up underneath the mating surface and sealed it up. Works like a champ! I would suggest that some one make the same component with a 15', 45' or 90' angle for applicability. Well that is my novel. Sum it up with " These things Rock!".
