I use a lot of the Cinch Jones connectors for every rotator and control
cable in the shack and have yet to have one fall apart. I do not use any
quick disconnects at the rotator, if I did I would not use these for the
reasons Roger mentioned.

The Cinch Jones type are handy, but unless held together with a spring
retainer, or taped, they come apart too easily.. A snap flat spring
retainer, or wire clip comes off quickly with none of the drawback of
tape. Of course the clips aren't waterproof. Likewise I use Davis RF and
the wire man for cables and most connectors. I'm uneasy with the isea of
connectors off e-bay.
