Depends how fiddly you consider 'fiddly'. On a scale of 1-10 13A plugs rate 1 and D-Subs around 9 I'd say the IEC connectors I've use rate 2-3 so not too difficult.

I've recently made some IEX extension leads and wiring the plugs/sockets was a nightmare. Very fiddly and hard to get the screws to 'bite' onto the cable without simply forcing it away from the connection post. After about 40 minutes of abortive fiddling I did work out a technique.
And that was exactly the problem I had when previously doing some IEC terminations - drove me batty!Hugh Robjohns wrote:... But annoyingly, depending on the diameter of the wire, the diameter of the screw, and the shape of the clamping plate, some designs have a habit of ejecting the wire no matter what you do!
