The following write up was done because I'm tired of people using those trailer clamps on everything or stakons and not crimping correctly.
The pictures were done at my work after hours and i just used scrap items so please don't ask me what i was splicing together because you will get a stupid response
And sorry for the picture quality i was using my phone and didnt have another hand to take clear pictures, but they get the point across.
I hope this helps or corrects at least one person on this forum because then i will feel i have helped someone with soon to be loose connections!!!
1. wire strippers(something to strip insulation)
3. soldering iron or small torch(afterburner lighters lol)
4. heat shrink (any electronics place will have ie radio shack or I think even auto part stores carry....inexpensive)
6. super 33 electrical tape(i only suggest this type)
Double check all your drawings and make sure you are splicing the right wires together before you start.
This picture is just items I used....I have only red and clear heat shrink because i didnt feel like going to my van to get black.
Take the wire you want to splice into and strip just the insulation part back try not to nick the wire to bad. It doesnt have to be perfect. All you need to do is get it to start to rip and it will pull apart. Use the same size gauge as you would stripping the end of a wire.
Now strip off the end of the wire of the device wire that you are connecting into the circuit.
Twist the wire you just stripped around the wire you are splicing into.
Now take your soldering iron(or torch) to heat the wire and move from side to side applying the solder(the more the solder doesnt always mean the better, put enough on there but dont go overboard). Try not to melt the insulation back anymore. If you do a little its not a problem. Make sure to get both sides good. Using the lighter torch is my method because the solder will run to the heat source so you usually dont have to spin the wire around like i did in this write up.
Now take your heat shrink and slide it down the wire to cover where you just spliced into the circuit.
Take your lighter and run it back and forth below the heatshrink while rotating. Keep the flame off of it a bit. It doesnt need to be right on or you will burn it. A little black isn't bad and from the pics you can see i did a little because i used clear and i'm trying to do this real quick(taking longer than i thought...and its thirsty thursday
Take your tape and roll it around tight to make it look good and stick properly(once again i use super 33 because other electrical tape sucks...I'm an electrician)
Final product holding up 2 kindorf stainless steel feet......
I hope this helps....I stayed little over an hour after work to do this now i'm going to get stuck in bad traffic and its thirsty thursday(50 cent well drinks
) BUT ANYTHING TO HELP OUT THE FORUM!
