If you don't have one and you don't need to plug and unplug them, just cut the ends off, strip the insulation, twist wires together and put some tape around the connections. You can't switch them up.. it doesn't matter which wire goes where with EL wire.

You would have to crimp your own connections and with those little connectors (they're known as "JST" connectors) and you you need a special tool to do so.

If you somehow have a soldering iron around and some solder, then melt some solder into the twisted wires before you wrap them for a more solid connection.

yeah i need to be able to switch the sound control mod out to my other el wire so i need the adapter. I was just thinking i could do this say like you have a male female pin on a cord for a computer you can buy adaptors. Sorry not el wire smart. hope you get what im saying.

I just went through my El Wire stuff. Most of it is from Coolneon. I have a bunch of those Female to Female connectors. I would try ordering from them.

I dont have the number. I don't see it on their website. Just ask for a double female connector.

This Y might work if you connected those ends...

Oops nm, I was thinking of something else. Where did you order yours from? Shouldn't they have connectors?

Call Coolneon. They should be able to help you. Those fittings are crimp only.. you can't go buy a pre-done one anywhere local.
