    Default SPT-2 Connector Bulk Buy Raleigh Area

    I am placing an order with NoveltyLights.com for SPT-2 male and female connectors. Each bag has 50 pieces and costs $27.50 plus shipping. The cost of shipping is unknown as the quantity will dictate the shipping cost, but a good estimate would be about $1 per bag of 50. The same rules apply as before. I will not ship but will deliver it to the meeting on February 20, 2010 or you can call me and make other arrangements. Furthermore, I will pay for the order and you reimburse me when you pickup the connectors. I will place the order on February 5, 2010 which should be ample time to have the connectors delivered. When I spoke to NoveltyLights.com, the gentleman that I spoke with indicated that the connectors may not be in stock and may not be available for our February meeting. If that occurs then I will contact everybody with details about picking them up. If I can negotiate a lower price when I place the order, I'll let you know.

    Here are the links:

    I don't see in the description if they're polarized or not, but the picture leads me to believe they are.

    I'd like two bags of each, for a total of 100 maile and 100 femaile.

    Between your 200 each and my 100 each, that may put the order into a better per piece price break.

    AL,

    Earlier this week I had ordered 50 M and 50 F of the SPT2 connectors from Novelty. UPS to me was $ 7.45 (probably the min UPS charge) but it was still less then a penny each.

    EDIT: Looked up some invoices from last year from Novelty, 300 connectors also had a shipping charge of $ 7.45 ! So shipping on group buy quantities should be very nominal.

    To answer Jack's question, yes they are polarized.

    I use hundreds of the SPT 1 from Novelty every year but do like to keep a small inventory of SPT 2 connectors on hand for when I cut up an extension cord or something

    John,
    I used Novelty's basket for the shipping estimate. When I put in 20 bags the shipping was $20 and when I put in 10 bags the shipping was $13. That is how I came up with the $1 per bag estimate. I'm sure it will be much less as the order grows in quantity. The gentleman at Novelty that I spoke to said their quantity prices left little margin for profits. So, I don't think that we will get a better deal but I will try.

    Jack,
    I'm glad the plugs are polarized. I've noticed that unpolarized plugs sometimes had problems staying connected. It could have been the plugs themselves were just crappy but it tainted my views on using non-polarized. Thank you for breaking the pricing barrier. I know Walter and maybe Denny will want some plugs which will kick the order up considerably. I like doing group buys. One of the side benefits is that we are all using the same kind of stuff and can lend each other stuff in an emergency.

    Al,

    My desire for polarized plugs is primarily in the use of cube taps, which I use on some ends. Most of them are polarized, and don't fit well into non-polarized outlets. But you do bring up a good point; the extra surface area on the neutral blade probably does help keep the device plugged in; plus it's a safety issue for those blow molds that run the wide blade (neutral) to the screw threads on the bulb base. For most mini-lights, it's a moot point.

    I have a lot of Males left over but used a lot of extra females due to combining string onto channels.

    Put me down for one bag of SPT2 males and two bags of SPT2 females.

    Any chance they have SPT-1 females ? I'd like a bag of those too ! They are mostly for adding to all my blowups where I cut the light lines to "intercept" the internal lights. So white would be nice.
    Thanks,

    Al,
    Put me in for 1 bag of each (male, female)

    Denny,
    They have SPT-1 on their website, I believe, but don't know what the prices would be...and I think you would want males, not females to put on the ends of the light cords...at least if they're coming out of the inflatables....

    Denny and Al,

    I keep hundreds of the SPT1 in stock, both Male and Female. Most are in white.

    I'll be glad to bring Denny some at the next Charlotte convention. I paid 55 cents each for them, and I'll pass them on at the same price.

    That works for me John ! I would like 50 SPT-1 FEMALES for sure. I will refine my request when the date gets close. I hope I can make that conference, but I am also heavily booked in July and August each year with Antique Outboard club meets, several large outings on the lake and then the last week of August is always a white water rafting trip with my kids. I have not missed that trip in nearly 20 years. I can send some cash if I miss the date, but I will try real hard not to miss so I can meet you guys !
    Thanks,

    I'll be glad to do it for you. I usually order in 150 of each several times a year from Novelty.. I always have SPT 1 plugs and sockets in stock in White.

    So don't worry about mixing M & F in any qty.
