They have a size letter, I am looking for an M, what size are these. The 2.1 mm plugs are MM, is the 2.5mm an "M".

are those outside and internal dimensions? and if so what is the barrel length? how are the wires held?

Asked by: mrrog
The barrel is approx 10mm. To attch the wire you would press either of the red and black levers on top of the connector. This will lift the corresponding spring loaded mechanism inside the connector. You then place the wire into the connector and when you release the lever the spring mechanism will hold the wire securely in place.
