Oops My Cable -- How to mend a banana (cable)

Author Oops My Cable -- How to mend a banana (cable)
Sometimes the wire comes out of the banana plug - argh!
But it is quick and easy to repair!

Tools required - one small flathead screwdriver and a pair of wire-strippers

You will notice two little rectangular holes on the side - use the screwdriver to depress these nubs and flip out the top part.

You can then slide out the metal part.

Inside the metal part is a little threaded set-screw - you can see it through the side window (where the wire will go). Put the screwdriver into the top of the metal part and locate the screw terminal. Unscrew it to open up the side hole.

Use the wire strippers to strip a short length on the end of the wire, then insert it into the side-hole.

Tighten to attach. Trim off any excess from the other side of the side hole.

Re-insert the metal part and close the little plastic flap.

Job Done!
Hasn't happened to me yet but I'm saving this thread for future reference, thanks Tom!
Thanks for this Tom. I just repaired three of my cables and it took less than 10 minutes!
Thanks a lot for this handy little post, didn't realise it was so easy and solder-free to put together a Rapid banana cable nanners It's peanut butter jelly time! Rockin' Banana!
had a Phenol,that was my banana plug experience,but going to order some cables from Tom
I also have a makenoise jumbler and one from Tony at Synovatron......Euro to banana.
What do you do when just the tip comes off ?
Do you mean the little round tip - c. 3mm long piece right on the end?
If so, unfortunately I think the whole end should be replaced.
Does anyone know where I can order those banana plug ends to make my own cables?
You can get the 4mm plugs and wire in different colours at Rapid electronics online It's peanut butter jelly time!
Thanks for the info! smile
