Those are the same ones i got last time i ordered them from Lutro.
I think those are the way those terminals are supposed to come. FCPU sells them with reels arranged the way you were expecting em to be. I usually either just bend it back and forth a cpl times to snap the pin off, or cut them.
I have 2 pairs of the Trim Flush Cutters that Lutro sells. One for wire and one for sleeving. I cut those terminals with the one i use for wire. Just use some sharp snips or scissors or something. Should cut right off. If not, it's really easy to just bend back and forth at the spot you want it to separate
I'm pretty sure I just wore out a relatively new pair of flush cutters trying to cut these things. It was a set I only used previously for cutting sleeving. Two or three snips on this reel and now it can't cut them off clean enough to fit into a connector, and no amount of bending is ever going to snap the terminal off the reel. It will only break at the hole between terminals which is no help at all.
Also tried with a brand spanking new pair of Craftsman wire cutters and they can't even come close to cutting them off clean enough either. I'm at a total loss as to how they are supposed to come off there with what tool. ???
Yeah I suspect that's where these are going to go unless someone offers up a solution.
Thanks both of you for your replies though.
