Title: Yet another must have accessory for FT-817 - bolt-on Powerpole adapter

This is a Powerpole adapter block that bolts right on the back of the rig as sort of a "port saver" for the cheesy barrel power connector. Print the body and build yourself, or buy online ready-made.

I've printed it but I guess I've run out of plugs in my junk box. :(

I have one.  I need an adaptor for the MFJ 4103 FT817 power supply coax dc power plug to power poles.  Can somebody help me out?

The link in the original post didn't work for me. I found this, which seems to be the same thing.

I did a video of the same adapter that I bought from N0WL on ebay.  Nice little unit!
