    Please see the attached photo. The wire directly connects to the rubber L shaped housing, it slides onto the threaded rod from the circuit breaker. Has anybody used this L shaped interconnect before? Is it a custom part? Can they be purchased from digi-key or similar? I have been searching for a while with no success.

    I have the wire, and I have the circuit breaker, but I need this L shaped rubber interconnect. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

    They were used in cars back in the 1960 era. Pretty sure they were never available separate from a wiring harness. The rubber is molded on after the wire is terminated. Cant you just use a ring terminal and a nut on the threads? That would be a more secure connection and eliminate a splice in the wire.

    Thanks for the replies. Bullet connector would not work for me. I have considered the ring terminal, but the mold looks better and is easier for the user to replace. Ring terminal would be cheaper too though....hmmm. Thanks for the input!
