Can I get a 3 way connector to run 2 sets of LED lights from one transformer

Asked by: John
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.

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.
