I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get some of these connectors for my demo kit. I bought a vista demo kit about year ago, and you connect everything with these connectors. I want to expand my demo to more fixtures so I need to get some more of these connectors. They say Q-tee on the side but I could not find anyplace that sold them. thanks

Did you try contacting Vista? I am sure they would send you out a bunch.

Or you can contact cast as well. They use the same thing. What about radio shack, or a local electric supply house?

I posted info on it a while back.

Look through the threads on demo kits.

It's a NAPA Auto Parts part number. And I bet I posted it his past July.

Don't feel like going through bins in the garage right now.

EDIT(found it):

Got a private message asking about the 2 pole trailer connector , so I thought I'd answer it where anyone interested could see...

It's Napa part #755-1598. They call it a " 2-flat electrical connector loop -12" "

Cut it in half and you have two 6" M x F ends that you can attach to your fixture leads or lengths of cable (I used NS quarter ace connectors).

They're a perfect fit with the Vista demo kit connectors.

Can you get them with 12 gauge wire? Looking to add a couple of longer runs to my set up.

That appears to be your standard 2-wire flat trailer connector.

Remember, you asked.

Not to resurrect an old thread, you pros might want to look at this company for wiring connections.

Those are Amphenol .180 bullet connectors. You will most likely find trailer/automotive wire harnesses in the retail market using thermoplastic insulation. I wouldn't waste time on cheap crap from auto part stores, since they use all imported stuff from China.

These are standard clearance/marker connector cables used on tractor trailers. High quality OEM parts made in USA. Truck-Lite makes them- Part No: 50356. (top of photo) They are available in twelve-inch increments from 12" to 276'!

Now if they are molded with PVC landscape lighting cable, it is a custom in-house part on behalf of the manufacturer. You might want to contact them directly.

Mine from NAPA are a perfect fit with the Vista connectors and have worked flawlessly for the 14 months I've been using them.

Hey guys,
It has been a while since I have been on the forum, but I found a box of miscellaneous items after my move. I have about 50 NAPA quick connectors that I purchased after reading this thread, that I don't need anymore.

They are NAPA part number 755-1598 and according to this thread, are said to be a perfect fit to the Vista connectors.

If you are building your own demo kit or adding on, these connectors are perfect.

I will sell them for $1.50 each. I called NAPA and they are $2.50 there. I would like to sell at least 10 at a time preferably. I thought I would offer them to you guys before I throw them on Ebay.

Hope your season is going well.
