  1. Could someone point me to a document explaining how safety
    banana sockets work ? Probably supidity on my part but when I
    look at models such as these

    I have trouble understanding how they could possibly work with
    normal, non-safety banana plugs.

    Thanks in advance.
     
  2. Sorry, Rapid's web site is being worked on. Here's another one :

    Seems the female contact is buried deep inside a plastic tube of
    inner diameter 4 mm. It looks to me like the plastic body of a
    non-safety plug would bump into the tube before the pin is fully
    inserted in the female contact.
