These 3-Pin Connector - Best Quality
Reviewer:LNS-Front242-T3 (21)
I have finally found a place that sells good quality connectors, and I have been looking for these for awhile. These are easy to work with and are made from a good metal, not the cheap stuff you buy at Radio Shack. Shame On Me!!, For not buy them here first, but I only found out about about 3 months ago...

Works like a charm!

These pins work great with the crimping tool available through here as well. No solder needed, just start the crimp on the pins, put in the wire until the shielding enters the first part of the pin and finish the crimp. Perfect every time! (Only after you screw up the first few to figure out how this works best for you) Buy extras! And donít forget to get the crimping tool. That works great as well.

How to use these
Reviewer:sSs]Bison_Boy (1)
Some lessons I learned the hard way: First - the pic is great, these are break off pins so the plate with 3 holes is thrown away. These are easy to mess up so buy extra! They are tiny and very hard to use by just crimping, instead what I found best is to just tin your wire, not much solder at all, then bend these pins at a right angle and use an aligator clip to hold the base. Next put the wire into the groove and just touch the soldering iron to it and let the tinned wire bond. THEN squeeze the clips tight and break off and insert in the holder (the other side of these pins has a little spring clip, so that side lines up with the slot in the plastic header piece. The most common problems I had were, bending the clamps poorly or adding too much solder-> eatherr way it makes it difficult if not impossible to seat the pins properly. Use these, they work great and look sharp.
