Plugs don't come out By Guest
I'm probably just dumb, but I kept trying to remove the plugs so i could attach them to power leads. Took me a while to realize they're fixed and that the plugs ARE the Jacks, due to the non-binary gender construction. It would be nice if there were a minimal set of instructions that explained this for novices. I was about to start yanking on them with pliers. Other than that, it's a very solid piece of equipment and priced reasonably.

Interoperability, ease of use, and more! By Phil_in_CA
During a recent install of an Amateur Radio transceiver into my car, I thought I would try Anderson Powerpoles. I wanted to make my radio ready to go to Field Day, or any emergency activation, knowing that with Anderson Powerpoles my radio would plug right in with other power supplies in "Plug and Play" fashion.
When it became apparent that adding Powerpoles was a "snap" with the Power Werx Powerpole crimping tool (I've crimped 12 and not ruined ANY!), I decided to use Powerpoles on all my radios in my radio shack, too.
I bought the 8 Position Power Distribution Block to connect the gear in my shack and it went together like a dream! All my gear is now connected together with no more jumble of power leads to the power supply... just one clean lead from the power supply to the Distribution Block and all the units simply plug in!
What could be easier? Nothing, that I know of... Not only that, but any of my gear can be disconnected to go portable in an instant and brought back and reconnected in the same way!
My shack is cleaner and better organized now, and I can change things around simply by unplugging and replugging power leads in an instant!
Thank you, Power Werx and Anderson Powerpole!
