    Hi Bob, its a bit difficult to see the connectors, could you remove one and take a closer up photo mate. I've looked on ebay and there are some similar connectors called JST but I think they may not be the same as yours.

    Possibly some sort of Molex, but there are all different sizes and pin sizes so not always easy to guess which one you need.
    Do a search on eBay for RC connectors as they use them on the flight controllers used in many drones.

    I'm with Paul-H. I'd look at RC sites as they look like the type of connections used in multi channel speed controllers etc.

    Paul_l may be able to advise on that one. If he doesn't pick up on the post, try giving him a PM. He used to do RC cars.

    Hi All
    Thanks for all the replies the plug I am looking for is a JST SUR 2 pin.
    Now trying to find one in the UK that doesnot cost an arm and a leg for postage.
    be seeing you

    I bought a set of about 20 of the 2 pin plug and socket version of these from a Chinese seller a few months back, no idea of 'Brand name' bob, but I think it was either Rob Pulham or Paul (Dundee) who gave me the link on the forum. They are the type that Heljan use on their PCB's.

    Hi Bob

    How about these - Ebay link

    Although not sure how long it will take for delivery - I suspect Honk Kong or China, but the description may help in finding them.

    Not really Steve..........I need my ISP to finish their planned work in my area so that I don`t get service interruptions. Then my pages will load properly. Should finish today apparently.???
    Trouble with a "window(s)" is that it /they can have a Blind(s) or Curtain(s) blocking ones view of the big picture from the inside and also from the outside.
    I thought windows were supposed to be transparent as well as keep the weather out, however it seems that is not always the case.:rolleyes:
