I maybe in the wrong Forum but can anyone advise me as to where in NZ this type of connector which can be crimped with pliers rather than a special tool are available.  The only one I can find is ex UK and is called a PK4.

Yea they cost quite a bit, I got mine from element14, 100 pack for something like $60 with shipping because I didn't see that you could get them from jaycar. Now I'm stuck with a box that contains something like 95 of them.

Every electrical wholesaler in the country sells them. They're around 15c or so each to buy individually.

Teaches me right for being too lazy to get off my a$$ and check the stores around town.
