Cardas Patended Binding Post

The Cardas Patented Binding Post, designed as an OEM system, can replace most stock binding posts.

The famous "one handed binding post". A single knob tightens both spades of the speaker cable at the same time, without tools.

The contact posts have no nuts or threads to over tighten or strip.

How to order

The Cardas Patended Binding Post system is sold as a complete unit, and can be purchased at any Cardas dealer. A unit consists of a single knob, the top clamp, two posts, the base, and a 1/4-28 allen bolt. To install on a pair of speakers, you will need two units.

All variations start with the part name "CPBP" (Cardas Patented Binding Post), followed by the type & length of posts. When ordering, please specify the type of posts you would like. Options include:

Bare copper, short (CPBP CS)

Bare copper, long (CPBP CL)

Rhodium/Silver plated short (CPBP CRS)

Rhodium/Silver plated long (CPBP CRL).

The plastic knurled knob comes standard. To upgrade to a different knob, please choose from this list:

Anodized black (KAB)

Bare aluminum (KBA)

Custom laser engraved (KAE)

A black, 1/4-28 allen bolt is supplied with each unit. Longer or shorter bolts with the same thread may also be used.


Short vs Long Binding Posts

We make long & short versions of most of our binding posts.

Our short posts have an "S" at the end of their part name (ex. CCRR S). Our long posts end with an "L" (ex. CCRR L).

Should I use long or short posts?

Short posts are appropriate for most applications. If you are mounting your binding posts in the chassis of an amplifer, or in a speaker cabinet using a binding post mounting plate (such as the Cardas BPMP), we suggest using short posts.

Long posts are useful for speaker builders who want to avoid routing out a hole for a binding post mounting plate.
