In some electrical systems, there are times when you need to connect one wire to several wires. In these situations, you can use a step-up butt splice or a coloured heat shrink. Step-up heat shrink blunt splices can be used to connect different wire thicknesses.
This provides the best possible connection without loss of conductivity and is much stronger than the wires themselves. When connecting 10-track wires to 12 wires, connect each of them to two of the 12 AWG wires. Soldered wire connectors do not require crimping, but you can use them in hard-to-reach or restricted environments.
The adhesive melts in the soldering tube and shrinks to give the splice a waterproof seal. The supplied adhesives and heat shrinks (available in black, red or clear) are cut to length and then sealed with a splice or splice of crimped wire. Position the wire strip through the soldering sleeve and apply heat to terminate the connection.
The Heat Shrink Butt Connector is equipped with a heat-shrink insulation material that surrounds the terminal. When exposed to heat, the insulation seals the terminal with the wire. The shrink-blunt connector is used to pair, connect and terminate a single wire.
Heat-shrink connectors transform electrical wiring into a fun and efficient process. These are high-performance wire connectors from the USA, which are designed for harsh conditions such as outdoor and wet areas. Unlike their vinyl or nylon counterparts, shrink-blunt connectors are able to withstand harsh marine and automotive environments.
Take a look at our selection of butt splice end caps that can be used to seal and protect cable terminals with heat shrink connectors. Butt splices the crimp and solders the heat shrunk ends together to provide a waterproof and dust-proof seal. Heavy splices and end stub seasoned for extra thick walls for the most demanding applications.
I agree with Carringb that heat shrink connectors do not compress or damage the cover. Darryl My use is a combination of bare butt connectors with an adhesive line for heat shrinkage and brazed glue lines for heat shrinkage.
I used a good example of a decent crimper on the first page (10 / 22 wire crimp n seal connector). There are a number of good brands that use FTZ's small eyelets (they have a crimping tool for each eyelet, but I know they fit - even if it's not necessary) that feel much better than wire cables and have good labels. This is not to say that separate crimps and adhesive lines for heat shrinkage do not work with this type of connector (FTZ's crimp is a single crimper), but it does provide a nice crimp seal without damaging the adhesive or heat shrinkage.
In the rare cases where you drill through a shrink jacket during the heat shrink process, the jacket heals by itself and fills the hole with sealant. It's not crucial for something like aux-in bulbs, but this is my use of shrink-blunt connectors.
