Yeah that's true! And haha I've actually got a bag with about 40 pairs of those Power Pole connectors........but there from back when they were sold under the Sermos name. I used them for battery connections on my RC cars, but have since switched to a better one

Yes, split down the middle, butted up to the center line, and pinned till dry. Works great.
