Please advise how wires are connected to rods inside the plug. There appears to be no way of soldering wires to them. Female socket has soldering tags. 

Asked by: Puzzled pinner
Having checked one of these there are 5 pins going through the center, they would not be the easiest to solder to, but would be soldered.
