These connectors are typically made from some form of plastic or brass. Plastic is the more affordable of the two, and is also known for its low weight and ease of use. At the same time, plastic connectors are not as durable as brass units, and are more likely to break due to sharp impacts, severe weather or other factors. Brass is heavier than plastic, but tends to be much more durable over time. Avoid metal connectors made from materials other than brass, as they are susceptible to rust or corrosion.
