A DUMMIES GUIDE TO HEAT SHRINK BUTT CONNECTORS


WHAT ARE HEAT SHRINK BUTT CONNECTORS?

Heat shrink butt connectors are a device to connect electrical wires. The connectors consist of a polyolephin tube that when heat is applied, tightly seals around the terminal and wire. The heat shrink connectors make a durable and secure connection.

 

These butt connectors, or terminal connectors are mostly used in boat, car, trailer, truck, and ATV wiring

Besides creating a great connection, the melted adhesive acts as an extra layer of protection against moisture and vibrations. This increases the life of the connection as well as preventing corrosion and wire pull-out.

 

COLOR CODED FOR A REASON

Wire connectors are color coded to American Wire Gauge AWG standards. The most popular color / sizes are Yellow AWG 12-10, Blue AWG 16-14, and Red AWG 22-18. The size of the wire determines what size connector should be used in making that splice.
