Rear-mounting banana jacks

  1. Only banana jacks I've seen that can be removed from the panel
    without disconnecting from whatever's inside :

    Anyone knows who makes them ? Or a similar product ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Pomona 1581 (tin), 2854 (gold), or 4900 (high temperature) *might* do
    what you want:

    I don't know if all the plastic parts unscrew from the threaded part
    or not. A picture at Mouser (US distributor) shows a 2854 with only
    one of the plastic parts on the threaded part. Search for part number
    565-2854-0 on to see the photo.

    Pricing from various US suppliers seems to be about $1.60 each for 1581,
    $2.50 each for 2584, and $1.80 each for 4900. They are available in
    various colors.

    I hope this helps!

    Standard disclaimers apply; I don't get money or other consideration
    from any companies mentioned.

  3. Thank you. Those Pomona parts do look like they can be removed
    from the back. They are suitable for panels up to 9.5 mm, which
    the mystery jacks probably aren't unless you provide an
    additional bushing.

    Bad news is that there is a minimum panel thickness (1.6 mm, way
    too much for steel) and the front bushing is round so you pretty
    much need a D-shaped punch for the hole.

    I've since discovered that the Electro PJP 3230 does everything
    the mystery jacks do, with the advantage that the front bushing
    can be held fast with an ordinary 9 mm hex socket.
