Need Help!


Hey guys I have a male connector that recently broke off from a project I was working on and I cant seem to find a new one anywhere. I was wondering if anyone had some insight to what this may be called and where I would be able to purchase some new ones.




I don't know if this is the right place for this and if not I do apologize in advance. I've seemed to have exhausted all my other options and everyone I ask is clueless. If you guys need any additional photos or any questions answered to help identify please ask away. I thank you all in advance for your help.

-Nick

Need way more information. Pics of the complete connector? What's it for? Can you just replace both sides (male and female)?

Joe i wish i knew!

I have a 18 gauge wire that slips into it as you can see in the photo, than the male connect is a flat piece that connects into a female connector. I'm not sure if i need to replace the whole wire and this comes pre attached or if there are fittings out there that i can replace this one that i removed.

Well if it is just one wire connecting to another wire, just get two new connectors in the electrical department of a store...

Not sure how to edit a post so i apologize to the mods for a double post.

Poulton,

Here is a complete picture of the actual setup



You have the positive and negative wires that run into that plastic housing. They come up through 2 holes in the housing and at the end of the wire you have the connectors. Looks like this




The other side it connects into has two female inlets (not sure if i am using proper vocabulary). Overall it acts the same way an extension code and a plug would work as far as connecting into one another. Is that enough information? If there is anything else i can supply you with please let me know.

-Nick
