90 degree spade connectors

PostPost by: gjz30075 » Tue Feb 07, 2017 5:59 pm

Does anyone know where I can find (in US) the spade connector type shown in the picture? Also
technically, what is it called (which makes searching easier)

McMaster do a double 90 Degree that could be cut in half.

Perfect! They call them 'quick disconnect', too. Thanks!

Greg, check the top of some old ignition coils you may have lying around as they may have the connector you can cut in half also. Joe

Puzzled. Why wouldn't you just bend a straight one? Simpler surely?

Can't even find a single sided straight one. The McMaster Carr options: straight - bend and cut. 90 deg - just
cut.
