That's the front of the receptacles, now for the back(inside the trailer). There are a few different types of connections to the Pollak receptacles: One is a terminal connection, one is a spade connector and another is meant for some type of pre-assembled wiring package used for semi-trailers.
The original Signal Stat used spade lug connectors. The only Pollaks I could find in stock were the terminal type--i.e., strip the wires, stick them in a hole and screw down the screw to hold them in. I wanted to get the project done before a trip...so I had to modify the spade connectors to fit into the holes. Folding the spade connector on itself lengthwise is a quick, if somewhat un-elegant, way to do this!
Here's a picture of the back of the old receptacle. The new one fits right into the old hole and is slightly longer, but the screws actually match up!
I'll post a picture of the final assembly as soon as I can locate it!
