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.

Rapco Horizon plugs Assembled in MEXICO!

About Me Experienced

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

I purchased these think I would get SwitchCraft product... it came as Rapco Horizon product. The other reviews on this page are correct, SwitchCraft makes a good product here in the USA. These Rapco plugs clearly state on the back of package "Assembled in Mexico". Bait and switch.. let the buyer beware.

          The bottom line is that Switchcraft is the best. Been using then for 35 years. I make my own speaker cables. Regular size or the jumbo for heavier wire. Don't waste your money on other brands. These will do the job and last !

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

            This plug was used to replace a 90 degree bass guitar amp cord plug. The change was fast and easy. The quality was great. The sound was now clean and pure with no crackling and popping that the 90 degree plug created. This straight phone plug is of high quality material that is perfect for plug replacement or new cord assembly.

              Switchcraft jacks are easy to install and they don't break down very often.They'll last forever if you treat them with respect. I have cables with Switchcraft jacks that are over thirty years old and are still getting the job done.

                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 Best Ever. What every other plug tries to be

                By LARRY COLE

                from Central Ohio

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

                I have been playing for 50 years and have never had a Switchcraft plug go bad, or even tarnish. I have never found any other plug that wouldn't at least tarnish and have to be cleaned from time to time. In the last 39 years I have had to repair 1 cord that was made with good cable and Switchcraft 280 plugs and that was because of repeated jerking it out of the volume pedal on my steel because I didn't want to lean over and pull by the plug. There is on better, no matter how much you pay or how much gold or any other high dollar material they are made with.

                  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.
