Hi guys,

Just looking at the lugs for my Anderson Plugs and not sure which way the lugs go in . Does the hook on the end of the lug go in facing the dome part of the body or facing the flat part of the body.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Regards
Geoff

Geoff,

Hear is some reference from Anderson Power for you to select the appropriate documentation.

Ah, the Anderson Power site in Australia doesn't give good assembly instructions.

Try this one:- Assembly Instructions

The little hook / lip at the tip of the "lug" must fit over the spring clip ...

Cheers

The small notch must clip over the spring.

Make sure not to deform the lugs when you crimp them or spill solder.

Hi Geoff,
No need to crimp. I watched my leccy do mine. Tin the end of the wire first, then heat the plug end bucket with a gas flame while holding it in a vice. Melt solder into the bucket(what else can you call it?) and while it is is runny, put the wire end in and cool it.
No crimping and the wire is a tight fit. Assemble as above.

Cheers
Bill

Bill,

Agree with your method, although I wrap the stripped section with a bit of copper wire to increase the diameter before tinning and plunging.
This is the method recommended by Anderson and it reduces the amount of solder required.


Another Bill.

It's easy enought o clip the terminal in, but if you want to get one out again.......?
After considerable head sctatching I used a piece of steel box strapping, ground down in wiidth to slip in from the wire side and under the spring catch.
When the catch is released the strap and terminal came out together.
