I'm trying to shove some 12 gauge wire into my banana plugs from monoprice.com. They fit, but I'm having a REALLY hard time getting them in. Anyone have any tips?

lol! Thank you very much. I was doing it completely wrong.


I have one more question though: how perfect do the strands of copper need to be on step 4 for it work properly? Sometimes my strands are a little shorter than that and sometimes a little bit longer. Thank you.

Well try to make it like in their picture
If the strands are too long and get on the threads it's very very hard to screw in. If shorter I guess the cable may lose connection when you give it a pull. I let the bare wire poke out about 1/8" in step 3.
