Don't mess with crappy jacks! They're one of the parts in a build that get the most abuse
The Neutrik 229 open frame mono jack is sturdy, well-made and reliable. And in some cases will be far superior to a clone, depending on the manufacturer. (Trust me: I've messed with and tested a lot of generics and clones.)
You know when you're tightening a cheap jack, and it just pops apart like confetti? This won't happen with a Neutrik. The cup attaching the shaft to the rest of the housing is FIRM. And, the Neutrik's metal is THICK and HARD. It won't bend out of shape and lose grip over time. This jack can take tons of abuse.
