Making electrical connections a snap

Changing electronic components often requires cutting wires and recrimping them.

A time-saving alternative is Connect-able connectors from Etco Inc., Warwick, R.I. (etco.com). The connectors are reusable and make a solid "pull-on/push-off" electrical connection that resists coming apart. They can be used on appliances, scientific and medical devices, stereo equipment, and automotive and marine electronics. The connectors can also be used to form a splice.
