Interest Check - Usher Locking Binding Posts

I'm ordering some of these to do my RTA-15tl because they are the best binding posts I've seen. What makes them so great? They are superb at clamping down spades and also have a locking mechanism for bananas.

I figured I would do an interest check to see if anyone else was interested. As a price - I would expect it to fall in the $80-90 per pair range, so these are not cheap, but they are well worth the money due to the intricate design - its basically two separate binding posts in one.

I'm not sure I could sell them individually yet, but if I can, who would be interested?

    Ok, then I'm gonna guess its my work firewall blocking the picture. It doesn't normally do that.

    Why would one need a post that locks the banana plug in place? I've never had one fall out nor do I recall seeing anyone say they have.

    So, you've had the banana fall out? Are the posts angled up or down?

    If I am approved to sell them outright, they would probably fall in the $100/pair range.

    These are very similar to the WBT posts that sell for $180/pair:

    If they are looser one slight pull and they yank out. I've had that issue before, especially with my old PNF cables. I love the Furutech locking bananas that Doug carries, but locking posts are much easier to use.
