Default New H4 headlight plugs

I found these headlight plugs about a week ago online, made by Hella, they are unique as they have 3 spring loaded push button's that you press in than insert the stripped end of a the wire into each hole, the spring (powerful, I could hardly press the button in !), holds the wire in place.

I tried one inserting a 10 gauge wire into one opening, 10 gauge as that is what I rewired my headlights using for the high output bulbs and double relay, it works very good, I also put a bulb into it and it holds onto the bulb terminals very firmly.

They are made out of what looks like that Bakerlite plastic with a composite back ( looks like circuit board material)

Part number is - 001909001 ordered them from Summit Racing and there number is HLA-001909001 they cost $5.46 each

Pic's of the plug below:

May install one tomorrow, will review them after

Just installed one of the plugs, works good, would be a little easier with a smaller gauge wire, the plug grabs the bulb securely. I replaced the bulb also.

Update, been almost 4 months, the Hella plugs are still working like the first day I installed them and no signs of any heat damage.

now that i think about it, i had to change my passenger side headlight plug right after i got the truck. i used one of the OEM style replacements off fleabay. i havent had any problem from that one either. but i still run OEM bulbs, so heat is not an issue.

the one i replaced was melted on the end that is against the bulb. i might pick up a couple of these just to have them.
