looking for ring-terminal style d-block

Postby kevox » Tue Jul 15, 2008 3:06 am

Ok so I'm finally sick & tired of pulling my 0 gauge out of the d-block only to attempt to cram it back in - it never wants to go in - as if there are too many wires!! (and no, it's not an inferior d-block adapting to really thick 0 gauge - they are both Stinger) It'd be ok if I hooked it up once and never put it in but it seems every week I'm disconnecting the power either to take the box out or for some random tweak or something....so anyways, I just checked ebay and found nothing so this is my next step....

Do you guys know of any d-blocks with Ring Terminal-style hookups on both the input and outputs? Like the battery uses.... I just want to solder the 0 gauge into a ring terminal so I won't have to mess with the 4500 strands any longer....

I've never seen one. Doesn't mean they don't exist, though. Why not just shave off a few strands?

Ah geez...well thats the alternative I've made is shaving off strands but I must not be doing it right cause it still wants me to shave more and more strands each time I put it back in:confused: I probably just need to "detail shave" it or something lol.

You know what else would be tight....if Stinger made a 0 gauge quick disconnect plug like this one! http://www.darvex.com/miva/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=2-SQD4&Product_Count=1

haha, doh. Just gotta twist it harder! Sometimes wire gets those little jumbles or balled up wire going on in the ends. Those really eat up space. Make sure those are worked out.

You can also make your own little quick disconnect strip. I know I've seen some posted by members on here before......trick is finding them.

And now for something completely different...

...why not just bolt together two of these? Image

Leave the wire in the d-block, and unscrew said bolt when you need to unprug the box.
