The Model CT3276-# FlexPlug is a 4 mm solderless safety banana plug, part of Cal Test's "Do It Yourself" safety plug and jack line, and is made for tasks such as fixing test leads or building custom patch cords. The non-sheathed plug has a slim line, soft, flexible insulator body, and uses Cal Test's own setscrew attachment method to offer solderless wire connection. The user can use a 1.5 mm allen wrench to strip and assemble wire to the plug. The Santoprene™ insulation is soft and flexible, and its spring contact is made out of durable beryllium copper allow. The plug is rated at 36A and 33Vac/70Vdc per IEC61010-031, but if not handheld can be used up to 1,200Vac/dc. It comes in black, red, yellow, green, blue and white, and prices start at $1.60.
