Product details

3.5mm Plastic Stereo Plug

A 3.5mm stereo jack plug with plastic barrel and molded cable strain relief.

There are 3 wires that make up the cable that I have to fasten to the Stereo Plug. 1 wire is bare, 1 is white plastic coated and 1 is red plastic coated. Is there any particular order these three wires need attaching in, should they be soldered?

Asked by: DavidP
These should be soldered, the order would depend on what you are attaching this to both in terms of the device and the socket. If this is for stereo speakers or headphones the standard TRS (tip, ring, sleeve) wiring pattern would be as follows: Tip - Left Channel Ring - Right Channel Sleeve - Ground

I would like to use this plug in conjunction with the matching socket (RK51F I believe) to make up an extension lead. Can you recommend a product code for suitable cable to join the two please?

The plug must be wired in accordance with the equipment being used. In a typical stereo audio application the tip is used for left audio, the ring for right audio and the sleeve for shield/ground. Contact the equipment manufacturer for their socket wiring configuration.

Could you give the outside diameter of this plug. I need to plug two into adjacent sockets on my computer. The sockets are only ~11mm apart.

This is approximately 7mm.
