    I'm setting up a new bench and I'd like to get a extra distribution block that has multiple quick connect slots. My current one requires using a screwdriver and I want one with a quicker connection option. I see some of the blocks with fuses which is cool.

    I've been searching but just haven't see the right fit yet. I swear years ago I saw something that is exactly what i need but I can't find it again. Even something spring loaded with 4-6 slots would work.

    Not all "spring load" are able to handle a lot of amps - try to derate them to 5 amps or less.

    Otherwise there is the Push on, Banana jack plug combos for pre-done power patch cords - the jacks can handle a lot more current than the typical spring load.

    Let's just say that as the draw goes up, the spring heats up and eventually will lose it's "tension" and depending on the mount, can deform the plastic housing.
