We were discussing this on the Cobra FB page. Cobra is soon to release face plates for plugging in e-matches with plug ends versus twisting wires.

Scott Smith commented that these will come shunted. Should be similar to these: https://electricmatch.com/.../see/12/5/quick-connect-harness
Although these on the MJG website are more dense, to be used with other firing systems.
The idea is the same, for a small upcharge you can get e-matches with plug ends instead of wire ends.
Let’s discuss this at the PAT Event a few days from now.
See you soon!
Ordered some of these to try out for serial wiring, Some folks swear by them. Come find me at Pyrofest and try them out. - JJ
Try Dolphin Connectors. They come in two types.
Super B Connector, Crimp B Wire Gel Filled Bean Type Connectors Blue Wet (Outdoor Use) + White Dry (Indoor Use) (200PCS + 200 PCS)
How well did the butt connectors work?
They worked, but they’re kind of fussy unless you’re doing a ton of serial wiring and/or have a controlled space to layout the plugs and pliers. Instead you can order cases of 2-3 Halo serial connectors from MJG if you know that’s what you want to use. https://electricmatch.com/pyrotechnics/see/11/5/halo-igniters
Now Hellrazor had some Cobra 18M’s with beta Cobra Male Plug In Ematch Ports at PAT, and some MJG e-matches with the female e-match ends. They looked cool, he can comment, but you could retrofit Cobra mod.'s to reduce twisting wire.
