Crimp Connectors

DetroitAdventureDog from Detroit,MI on 6/16/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros:

Cons:

These Make installation of my Car stereo a snap.

MC from New Hampshire on 5/14/2014

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!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Thes are a must for stereo installs, some people use butt connectors just depends on who you talk to I think. I switched from butt connectors to these. These are great quality and for the price and amount you get its a good deal, I loaded up on them.

Pros: Excellent quality, price and quanity

Cons: none

KR from Evanston, IL on 3/5/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield response on 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.

Much easier to work with than soldering or butt connectors.

Pros: Makes the job go faster.

Cons: None

Good product.

JDK from Groves, TX on 2/19/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Cons: None

Ist stereo install from Kansas on 2/1/2014

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.

Jared G from Birmingham, AL on 1/24/2014

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.

Bridget from Deming, NM on 12/21/2013

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

If you don't have these, GET THEM

Matt.C. from Vancouver, WA on 12/19/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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!)

Pros: Time saved Time saved Time saved Very little money spent

Cons: None. None at all.

MikeD from philadelphia, pa on 5/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used these crimp caps to install a stereo into my friend's car and it couldn't have been easier. I normally solder and heat shrink the wires, but decided to try these instead and it easily took less than a 1/4 of the time. As long as you have a decent crimping tool you should have no problems.

Pros: easy to use

Cons: none

Since you only make one crimp to join two wires together, these are twice as fast as conventional butt connectors. Good quality also.
