I want to re-wire my electricals and wanted to know where the inserts and caps go when you buy a set of the waterproof connectors from Jaycar etc like these http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=PP2110

Gumby over and out!

As he says - they must be soldered. Work great!

What has been happening is when connecting the male and females sometimes dont line up properly, with the male pushing the female back in the holder rather then slipping into each other.

Was hoping there was something else around that is a bit more robust

Thanks for all the info guys, I'll try the jaycar connectors for now as I bought a couple of sets a while ago and see how they go, might incorporate the banana plugs also.

Found those all-in-one butt/heat shrink/solder connectors on eBay cheap so might order a set for future use, found em here if anyone is interested, there are plenty of sellers on eBay.
