Are there corresponding slip on and lock connectors for the wires connections? It is really hard to get enough heat into the the tiny projection for solder to properly stick

Hi, What is the easiest way to wire this socket? Thanks Dave
Asked by: Dave4ness
Unfortunately we cannot comment on individual wiring or project design, but as a rule you would need to use a low wattage soldering iron with a small needle type tip, steady hands or one of our helping hands devices N30CH would certainly be an advantage.
