    Does anyone know of a UK source for TPS solar 2 pole plugs?? On fleabay, it seems that they are only available from The States or Germany, the postage twice the price of the plugs!

    Like this Jim. They are used to safely connect solar panels to the blocking diode.

    They look like bullet connectors. Normally solar uses MC4 connectors. Try bullet connector on ebay

    Thanks SB, seen these, but I want to purchase the plugs, and not the wire and stuff that isn't needed. I mean, someone must manufacture them.........

    Thanks mate. I need them fitted into the plugs. As you can see, they are shielded from each other, and form a neat connection when mail and female are joined.

    They look molded on so may not be available unless you by a million of them from someone in China.

    I got some last year with a solar panel, that you could unclip the cover and fit your own cables, but hey, your solution seems to be the best. (y)

    And if it doesn't work you can get the wife to knit a jumper for it and you've got a toy octopus to play with.
