What is this electrical part called?
During my first project, I tried Radioshack Quick Disconnects. I was building an all-in-one unit, and I needed to split 3 input wires (BATT, IGN, and GND) 3 ways - one to the power supply, the other one to the monitor and the third one to the amp (all 3 parts are ok with unregulated 12V). I also wanted to be able to disconnect any of the device quickly, yet have them securely connected at other times. My problem was that splitting a wire 3 ways is pretty messy, and with all that extra wire / electrical tape, the whole contraption becomes inflexible, so it was a pain to fit it all in a 7x7x4 box.
I was wondering if there's something similar to Dual-Row Barrier Strips, only instead of 1-1 wire joining, I can get 1-3 splitting. In other words, the top would have 3 total terminals, and the bottom would have 9 total: 3 triplets, each fed off one of the terminals above.
Alternatively, I was trying to figure out if i can somehow use one of Ring Terminals, but didn't find the right thing to connect them two - it needs a screw terminal, I assume?
So what's the best way to do this? For my next project, I'd like to have better wire management, and it seems that I'm just not using the right parts for the job.
