Our most secure banana plugs
Silverback banana plugs have the quality you’ve come to expect from Sewell, including gold plated connectors and a heavy-duty casing. What sets these banana plugs apart is the unique dual-screw lock design. This connection will secure your cable more than a single-screw or open-screw design. Dual-screw connectivity provides a secure connection, durability, and a clear signal transmission through the added contact. Silverback Banana Plugs accommodate up to 10 AWG speaker wire.
Easy to install:
- Unscrew the casing to reveal the inner barrel.
- Loosen the two small screws to make room for your speaker wire.
- Slide the casing down the speaker wire before terminating the wire to the inner barrel.
- Feed the speaker wire into the inner barrel of the banana plug.
- Tighten the screws to secure the speaker wire.
- Screw the outer casing back over the inner barrel.
- 24K Gold plating
- Solid brass banana plug tip and housing
- Aluminum outer sleeve (with brass threaded insert)
- Non-conductive clear coating on the aluminum sleeves
- Mini Screwdriver included on the 6 and 12-packs
Straight vs Right-Angle
Both options are great depending on your setup and how close to the wall you need your speakers to be.
Why Banana Plugs?
This banana plug interface is found on audio/video receivers, speaker wall plates, and more. Banana plugs offer an alternative to inserting a bare speaker wire into your equipment. Bare wire connections tend to get pulled out or frizzy after time passes, are prone to corrosion, and are a hassle to insert onto the equipment. Banana plugs offer a quick and secure connection that is both reliable and makes future changes painless.

We wanted to see how much weight a Silverback Banana Plug could hold. Watch this video to see the results.
Work great, saves much needed space behind my amp.
The aluminum cover pieces carry current and if they touch will create a contact point. No good for electronic parts. They also would not come off of the 90 degree plugs on a couple. This was due to the hold down screws not being bottomed out. Damaging them as the threads are now unusable.
When installing I used shrink wrap instead of trying to reinstall the aluminum covers. Going to find a larger diameter in black and red shrink wrap to reinstall cover pieces. For now they work as intended. Pic shows what could unintentionally happen if wires were to be pulled. Causing contact and shorting out speakers. Hence the shrink wrap for now.
Wish I had gotten some of these years ago. Not something you think you need but it makes I installing much easier especially if you need to move speakers around.
I have not used them yet, but the quality shows. I like the assembly method.
Like I said up there
