That’s always the excuse PP lovers use... But these were properly assembled, 
using the tool sold for them and insured that they are clicked together, 

I wouldn't trust them...  Last thing I need in an emergency is trying to fix 
some gimick connector that everyone thinks is great.

Sure if the PP is not assembled right in the first place.  Anything not 
properly installed cannot be expected to work right.

If the PP contact is properly slid all the way in to where it hooks over the 
steel spring clip, then (and only then) will it be in the correct position 
and will properly do its job.  Sometimes people do not do that last little 
click and forget to look carefully to assure it is seated.

I use them all the time, and they never come apart.
