    It’s time for Christmas lights, and since I have loads of 24V-ish lights with the same connector, I want to chain and split them.

    Problem is I have no idea of the name of the connector! They are waterproof and low voltage. Can anyone help with Google fu so I can pick up a bunch of these and their male counterparts? TY!

    In the event you can't find the name of these, can you cut that one off and replace it with another type of weatherproof connector like mc4s?

    Potentially - but I’ve found maybe 4 or 5 light sets that have similar voltages and connectors, and I’ve now found an extension and splitter via eBay.

    My problem is that it’s pot luck whether the thing I buy will have the right connector without knowing what I’m asking for!

    Bunnings sell a bunch of similar-but-propriety connectors that *almost* work, but don’t seal properly as the thread is different!
