There is a hole in the side of the banana plug that allows you to insert another banana plug that makes them stackable at right angles to each other.
Our Evaluation Results:
These banana plugs work well in many low power applications and we use them to build custom test cables for our own use in-house using the ultra flexible silicon wire that we sell. Since the screw clamp is accessible on the side of the connector housing, they should not be used for higher voltages (>48) where accidental contact may cause a shock or where it may present a shorting hazard.
Also note that the plastic housing is held in place by the same screw that clamps the wire. When clamping larger gauge wire, the housing may feel a little loose since the screw clamps down on the wire before it tightens fully onto the plastic housing, but it will still be securely held in place.

Notes: Some banana plugs may have a freely rotating tip rather than fixed as shown in the pics otherwise functionality is the same.
