We are offering these New GLS Audio "Generation 4" Gold LockingBanana Plugs at an incredible savings. The new "Generation 4" model hasbeen re-designed to work best with 10 gauge, 12 gauge, 14 gauge, 16gauge, and 18 gauge wire. The new "Generation 4" plugs use highquality solid "H59-1 Brass" which is 24K gold-plated. The "Generation4" wall thickness on the back of the plug has been QUADRUPLED! Thenew thickness is 2.0mm. The old version was 0.5mm. The diameter of thehole on the older version was 9.0mm which worked great for 2 gaugewire, but who uses 2 gauge wire? The new "Generation 4" hole diameterhas been re-tooled to 6.5mm. This smaller size works MUCH BETTER for 10gauge, 12 gauge, and 14 gauge wire. The "Generation 4" version alsohas longer set screws inside the plug. The longer screws in the"Generation 4" plug hold the wire in place much better than the oldversion.

As you can see they have the GLS Audio BlackChrome shell, which look stunning! These are REALGLS Audio "Generation 4" Plugs, not the genericknock-offs floating around. All the generic knock-offs are copies ofthe "First Generation" GLS Audio plugs. Our new GLS Audio "Generation4" plugs are VERY Heavy Duty (4 times thicker Brass) and the bestBanana Plugs in this style that we have ever seen. The greatest featureof these banana plugs is that they lock into place. We guarantee theseare the absolute best banana plugs you will ever buy! Plus we arelocated in the USA! Why risk having products shipped from a competitorwho is in Hong Kong, Japan, the UK, or other countries? Our shippingprice is less, shipping time is less, and there is no risk because weare located in the USA!

Excellent Value / Great Quality
I was totally expecting something like a cheap Chinese knockoff of the WBT brand this connector emulates, with poor plating, but I was immediately and very pleasantly surprised that these are pretty much 99% identical to the WBT plugs. I'm not a plating specialist or chemist or engineer of any kind, so I have no clue whether these are metallurgically identical, BUT, when you can get 24 of these for the same price as only 1 of the WBT, who cares? (Really, you don't need to spend $50 per connector.) Now that I think about it, it may be that the OEM of the plugs for WBT just decided to capitalize on a difference in dimensions and materials to drastically lower cost. I'm ok with that. Unless you are running a $50,000+ system, there's no point in spending anywhere close to what you spent on the core components of your hi-fi or home theater setup. These connectors are simply for ease of connection and therefore convenience, and aesthetic appeal. Did they make my speakers sound any better? No. Did I use an oscilloscope or any other measurement instrument to check? No. I used my ears, because I'm not some poof wasting money senselessly on crap that does nothing to improve sound. I simply wanted some better looking connectors they were easier to deal with when moving my system. They work great! It would be nice if these folks here offered a similar crimp sleeve kit to help ensure a solid connection to the plug and wire. Not a huge deal, but I'm knocking off one star because I want them to get around to doing that, even if it is JUST to show up WBT. Also, I'd love to see them come out with a kit that's only 25% of the cost of the WBT Crimp kit that runs for $250 which is just absurd. I'll be recommending these plugs to friends and other folks too. Get cool plugs AND don't make the wife angry? AWESOME.

Locking is the best
I've tried many plugs over the years. The locking feature is key. It makes my cables very tight and secure. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Where have these been all my life?
I didn't know this kind of thing existed until I saw them on sale here. I've always wondered why no one else had thought of it, and now I see they they finally have. The only way they could be any better is if they actually screwed or snapped into the binding post.

WBT watch out
I've used WBT in the past costing $35 per plug. The GLS are every bit as good but cost 95% less!

Excellent Bargain That Compare Favorably to the Cadillac Brand
I bought these items to re-connectorize the back surround speaker cabling in my home theatre system. At just 1/24 the cost of some other locking bananas I had previously purchased, these connectors are a whale of a bargain, work extremely well and exhibit a high level of build quality. Although they hold larger gauge wires extremely well, I personally would recommend that smaller gauge wires be terminated with WBT-style crimp sleeves to provide an added level of confidence when securing to the ends of the wire. Incidentally, although it doesn't really matter, my 24-pack consisted of a single pack of 20 connectors with screwdriver and an additional baggie of 4 connectors.
