My theory on why couplings come loose
« on: September 07, 2009, 02:52:26 pm »
One of the electric couplings I had to fix this week on my brand new Digital had a blue plastic sleeve over the metal blade. This sleeve was so long that I had to really shove the coupling together to make it stick. The sleeve seemed to be a bit too long to allow the connectors to sit right. I needed to squish the plastic a bit.

My theory is that the scrunched up plastic relaxes, unscrunches, and pushes the coupling apart after assembly.
