Nice find on the audiophile equipment for power! Now I can finally finish my build without breaking the bank.

I bought 2 sets directly from Mouser and they lock very well. Does your set have the metal peice on the "male" end? I can post pics later when I get home.

None of mine had a problem but I think JRems described the same/similar problem with one of his and was able to correct it with a metal file on the locking part…or something.
PM him and ask, it sounded like a quick fix it’s the same issue.

OK, I haven't played around with it too much. The "male plugs" both have a metal strip that is supposed to lock into the panel mount, and I looked with a flashlight down into the "female panel" connection and you can see an area where the metal strip should latch into and "lock" into place. It just doesn't actually happen. Connection stilll feels pretty solid but it would make me feel better to hear and feel that "click" when the connection is really made/locked

I'm sure you've already done this, but it did that a time or three with me. Once I pressed a little harder and got it to snap, it does it no problem each time now.

Yeah, mine almost seem opposite - thought they locked when they first arrived, then when I was fooling around with them the other day, I couldn't get them to click.

Seems this thread has been dead for a while but I thought I'd post my recent setup since I know what it's like to want actual pictures of setups. Got the idea from post #6 on this thread.
