Stuff You Should Love: Dubro EZ Connectors

EZCONNECTORS_ftrd

I hate Z-bending pushrods! It’s hard to get it right unless you have one of those expensive Z-bend pliers and it’s an impractical way to connect servo arms to control horns.

You know what I LOVE? I friggin’ love Dubro Kwik Grip EZ Connectors! You’ve never heard of ‘em?! They’re connectors that allow you to use your pushrods without bending them at all. You install the EZ Connector on the servo arm, slide the pushrod through it and tighten a little screw with a hex (Allen) wrench.

No more screwing the clevis in or out! If you want to adjust the length of the rod, just loosen the screw on the EZ Connector, hold the rod at the precise position you need it and tighten the screw again. Voila! 5-second fix.

You can buy Dubro Kwik Grip EZ Connectors at TowerHobbies.com, AMainHobbies.com and at many local hobby shops in packs of 2 for $2 or less.

If you’d like a cheaper alternative, check out HobbyKing’s 2mm and 1.5mm (pin diameter) versions for a little over $2 for a pack of 5.

  • These are great for electrics. but wouldn’t go near them for a glow model.. they vibrate loose.

    • Mike, it’s definitely more secure to use Z-bends and clevises on large and glow models, but DuBro makes full-size ones of these for those planes. You just need to use a dab of threadlock; that’s something I forgot to mention in the article.
