Product Description: This new addition to Heyco's line of pre- molded cord ends allow manufacturers who use the larger 10-12 AWG wires to benefit from the same assembly-time cost savings and product quality improvements as have users of smaller-gauge wires.

The bridge is available in black or "natural" nylon. Optional seven-shape blades feature a retention ledge to maintain a firm position during plug molding. In addition, Heyco's 10-12 AWG Male Bridges pass high-temperature pullout tests with low cost PVC.
Construction & Finishes: Support structure (bridge) is molded of durable type 6/6 nylon. Blades and pins are precision-stamped brass for sturdy conductivity.
