Crimp Connectors

Written By DetroitAdventureDog, Detroit,MI on Monday, June 16, 2014

They are crimp connectors, not much that can go wrong with them. I suggest using a crimp tool as opposed to ghettoing it with pliers for a secure connection.

These Make installation of my Car stereo a snap.

Written By MC, New Hampshire on Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I'll never use those tube type splicing connectors again. These were nearly as simple as wire nuts. Twist the ends of the wire together, insert, crimp, done! No more fumbling to crimp wires on a car audio install.
Pros:
Simplify installation of car audio.
Cons:
Nada!

Size is Advertised Incorrectly

Written By KR, Evanston, IL on Wednesday, March 05, 2014
 
According to the description on Crutchfield, "Package contains 100 crimp caps - for 14- to 20-gauge wire." On the packaging I received, 14-16ga wire was specified. Assuming I wasn't shipped the wrong product, the description on the site was wrong ... these definitely won't work on 18ga wire, let alone 20. Even 16 seemed a little loose to me.
Crutchfield response on Monday, March 17, 2014
We reviewed the product, saw that this customer was correct, and updated our website. We also sent her some connectors that will work with the smaller wire sizes. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Good product.

Written By JDK, Groves, TX on Wednesday, February 19, 2014
 
Paid this price at Crutchfield delivered. Closest competitor was $5.85 delivered. Product is exactly what you would expect. No problems. Crimp caps with insulating outer jacket. Bought these because I had intermittent disconnect in one of my wiring connections. These little crimp caps kept the wires from getting loose. The Crutchfield packaging was overkill for mailing these things, and they arrived in pristine condition. You won't be disappointed unless you're actually going to solder. I like these better than barrel crimps.
Pros:
Good quality

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I went ahead and purchased these caps but after much searching on the internet that said solder and shrink wrap was better I decided not to use the crimp caps and to solder and shrink wrap.

Probably would have been OK with crimp caps. And would have been much faster and easier.
Pros:
I think it would have been easier and faster than solder.
Cons:
Bulky connection and not as secure as opposed to solder.

A must have in your wiring "tool set"

Written By Jared G, Birmingham, AL on Friday, January 24, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I ordered these on a whim.. but, I have to say they are more than useful. They are QUICK,.. and you can throw 1, 2, 3, or more wires in these twisted, and crimp and not have to worry about them. They really speed up installation.

Pros:
Can be used to simply crimp a single wire that isn't being used anymore to keep it from interfering.. to joining 2-3+ wires together in a nice strong crimp. Cheap, and has a million uses in wiring! Everyone needs a bag of these.
Cons:
None.. I ordered on a whim, didn't think I'd really use them.. but I keep going to them due to ease of use and quality of the crimp.

Written By Bridget, Deming, NM on Saturday, December 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
EASY and Secure. First time for me to install new Car Stereo, (no choice, no one local here to do it). These were so much easier after I struggled with Butt connectors (from local hardware store) with no success. Price was better than local hardware store, which only had limited inventory in small quantity packages. I have a lot left, but having "enough" to work with gave me peace of mind and plenty of extras to use until I got the hang of it.
Pros:
Easy to Use! Secure
Cons:
None

How did I ever install a car stereo--or any car electronics without these? Well, by fumbling around wasting a whole bunch of time with a soldering iron and electrical tape, that's how. Super-dee-dooper time saver when connecting wires--worth every penny (and so much more because they are so cheap!)

Hi, I just got these connector but I have no idea how to use them to connect two wires. Do I need other tools to do with them? Please help me. [ Ken Wu  Dec 12, 2013 ]
7 answers
  • Just twist your wires together...place cap over end so it covers your connection...and "crimp" with pliers or vice grips where the narrow endd is...on the metal...this will keep your connection covered from contacting other wires or metal..good luck!!! [ TODD   Dec 13, 2013 ]
  • I used a wire crimper. You can also use a different tools as long as you crimped/pressed the butt of the connector, you need to twist/insert the wires inside the connector then press as hard as you can the butt of the connector. Hope this help. [ JONALD   Dec 13, 2013 ]
  • You twist the two wires together and insert them into the cap. Then crimp the outside of the cap. You can use a crimping tool or cheap out and use pliers like I did. [ MICHAEL H   Dec 13, 2013 ]
  • 1. Twist together the wires you plan to connect. 2. Insert the twisted wires into the crimp cap 3. With an electrical crimper or even vise-grips squeeze the cap so the wires will not come loose 4. Once complete I recommend zip tieing together the bunch of wires to keep them organized. [ DILLON   Dec 13, 2013 ]
  • You need to twist the wires together insert them into the cap and crimp the cap with wire crimpers. They are available at just about any auto part stores in the electrical section, they might be available at walmart too... So, yes you need other tools to complete the job. [ DAVID   Dec 13, 2013 ]
  • Twist your wires together. Insert them into the cap. Crimp the metal portion of the cap. Done. [ STEPHEN   Dec 13, 2013 ]
  • Yes u need a crimper for these connectors. Just strip about 1/4 inch of the wires, twist them together, then put the cap over the wire (making sure the stripped wire is in line with metal center) & crimp the metal center of cap. [ ANTHONY   Dec 13, 2013 ]
