    Hello!

    So I'm in the process of trying to stock up on some electrical odds and ends and I'm stuck trying to buy one particular part as I'm not sure of the correct name.

    It is a un-insulated right angle part with a male tab on one end and a female receptacle on the other end. It is used inside of a switch when wiring film lights. I use them to adapt a straight receptacle to a right angle allowing it to fit onto the male tabs in the switch.

    Unfortunately when I search for them online it only comes up with two versions both with two male parts on each which aren't of use to me.

    I have attached a few photos for reference! Thanks so much, Laura

    They are commonly referred to as Spade or Stake-on terminals, Panduit are one of the larger manufacturers that you should be able to find a source, those are male to female adaptors.

    Looks like Panduit DV18 (or14)-250P-LY should be a replacement?
