Deadbolt 45 Degree Spade Plugs
How to Install Deadbolt Spade Connectors:
Spade connectors are a versatile alternative to banana plugs or wire crimps when setting up a modular home entertainment system. Easy to terminate and with a strong, clear connection, these spade connectors make any audio install a breeze.
Deployment is as simple as inserting your speaker wire, tightening down the crimping screws, and then plugging the connector into your audio devices. It couldn't be easier!
Fast-locking technology lets you quickly and easily terminate 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18 gauge speaker wire without soldering, crimping, or using screws. Fast-Locking works by using self crimping teeth which securely lock the spade connector to the speaker wire.

Sturdy and work well. Note that they are not copper (just a note to potential buyers - they are described accurately). They assemble easily and grip the wire firmly. Not sure whether the spade thickness is not excessive (tradeoff between resistance and capacitance), but no sound degradation in our mid-fi system. I bought 8 pairs; the ends of a couple of the red/black polarity bands peel up a bit. Overall good product and recommended.
Very easy to connect.
Solidly built; unfortunately, does not fit a Yamaha receiver binding post due to the connector shroud.
Went bananas instead
Easy to use, make great contact with the speaker terminals -
nice solid connections!!!!!
