    Hi, does anyone know if the IDC connector can be uncrimped, opened, or salvaged for reuse when I remove the EMG wiring? Or is it a one time use item? If it is salvagable, how do I do it?

    Sorry this thread is redundant - I also posted in the EMG Geezer thread. I can't find a way to delete this post....

    I would never trust it again once it's been crimped, even if I could un-crimp it.

    That's kinda what I was thinking. I'll just leave it.

    Well the good news is you can get a pack of 25 IDC connectors for $5.

    No, I forgot to post the link and now I can't find it. But I found a whole bunch of IDC connectors fairly cheap just by Googling.

    A big box hardware store probably has them with their "low voltage wiring" supplies, IDC connectors are used a lot for telephone and security alarm wiring.
