- Anyone know what this is called?
When you say “pull it apart” are you anticipating its destruction?
Usually the pins are crimped onto the individual wires then slid into the plastic plug body. There’s a miniscule tag on the pin that keeps the pin in the plug. Look into the end of the plug where the pins stick out and use something like a small jewelers screwdriver to depress the tag and the pull the wires and pins out of the plug.
Am I missing something?

ask this bloke
does the red wire connect to some more red wire further down ?
😉 HTH but doubt itconvertSubscriber
Is this some adaption going on? If intended for internal routing surely it would not have that monster on it? Does it fit into an equivalent female socket attached to another wirte or into something. If the former could you cut off both plugs and replace with a standard bit of chocolate block.Posted 3 months agomolgripsSubscriber
If it were me, I’d snip the four cores and re-join them. You can get a special tool to remove the pins from plugs like that – look on ebay – but it’s going to be hard to be sure if you’ve got it right or if it’ll work.
You might be able to get compatible connectors on the internet somewhere, but without the proper crimping tools it’ll be more faff than simply breaking and rejoining the wire.
Warning though – if that’s connected to a battery you have to be incredibly careful because snipping them all together will short the battery out – and then having dangling bare wires around could also create shorts. And if it’s a Li-ion battery and you short it out you’ll trip the protection circuit and ruin it.Posted 3 months ago
