    I have no problems with the jacks themselves, however the packaging seems a bit overkill. I order these in bulk (20 at a time) and while the price is admittedly the best I could find, I think these could sell cheaper if they weren't individually shrink-wrapped to a piece of cardboard. This wouldn't be so bad except that the shrink-wrap really sticks to the ends. If you don't get the plastic off, it won't connect. So I'm sitting here right now individually peeling 20 plugs from their shrink-wrap cocoons.

    Would just like to suggest that maybe you could provide a bulk option where these were not individually wrapped. Product is great, nice and sturdy.

    These are my favorite plugs for making custom guitar cables, but there is hot glue all over them from the packaging and its really messy & tough to get clean. Not cool! I'm going to try rubbing alcohol, but I shouldn't have to. They should be packed better.

      Comments about Switchcraft 280 1/4" Straight Phone Plug:

      I used these plugs to replace the ends on a 20 Ft cable i own. It breathed new life into a cable that was previously intermittent. Good buy, yet i wish they were sold in bulk without the bulletproof packaging.

        The price is right for this great plug. Works as advertised. Like others said, the hot glue used to attach the plug to its packaging is a pain to get off; I had to use pliers to pull it off.

                          Being an Electrician it was a 5 minute job to replace two cable ends. But I think that anyone that can use a soldering iron wouldn't have any trouble. There also appears to be a screw hole for the main conductor. Just get the right screw at you local hardware store. Screw didn't come with product.
