View Full Version : Anyone need some King connectors?

01-10-2009, 02:18 PM
I have a box of King connectors. Gray and black. I get them with the lights I order from Vista but I just throw them in this box, as I use Ace connectors instead. I have exactly 325 in this box and I will sell them for .15 each if anyone wants them. Most of the time they sell for around .35 or more each. PM me if you want them I will arrange shipping with you.

Tim, Have I got a deal for you! :) I will trade you even up for Kichler Quic Disc's!
Are you getting pounded with the snow out there also?

Timing is everything! David beat me to them.

If David doesn't take them all at 0.15 each I will. I thought I was doing well when our price dropped from 0.85 to 0.62 each this past year.

frog nuts are not too badly priced at 50 cents each, or 25 bucks for 50. I think I pay around 35-40 cents but I have to buy 1000 or 400 bucks worth.

I dug up some drycons on thursday that I had installed 3 years ago. No issues. The joint was soldered first then dryconned. I had to add to the hub. I dont use them anymore but I have to say I was impressed by the fact other than a bit of dirt they held up well.

They were inside a spider splice. Tims price is a steal.

Do frogs have nuts?

I would suspect at least 50% of them do, or at least some reasonable facsimile! :laugh:

Frog walks into a Doctors one day, and says: "Dr. I can't help feeling a little nuts"... The Dr replies: "A LITTLE NUTS, HAVE YOU LOOKED IN THE MIRROR LATELY".

I've never had a corrosion problem using grease wire nuts in over 20 years of irrigation work. The lighting systems I put in 10 years ago plus with grease nuts are still running strong.

I've had a few that dried out and dirt got in... HOWEVER... that was with the old style white goop. The newer clear goop seems like it might hold up better...

i was told by a Nightscaping rep. (for whatever that's worth) that lighting systems because of their sustained application of voltage runs warmer than irrigation systems where you're just momentary current to open the solenoid and less amps to hold it.

Anyway, I've used the gray and black for years on #14 irrigation wire with few problems, but for lighting tend to use them only on repairs and replacements on systems where I didn't use Ace connectors or I have no idea what else is in use...
