Posi-Products connectors help make your electrical connections fast, easy, and reliable with no crimping, soldering, or messy tape. Just strip your stranded wires, insert them in the caps, and then hand tighten the two caps together — the wire ends get locked between opposing cone shapes to create a water-, dirt-, vibration-, and heat-proof housing. You get a strong, low-resistance electrical connection, and you can reuse the connectors, too.

Posi-Tap™ connectors tap into hot leads without cutting or stripping them. Just insert wire to be tapped into the large cap and hand tighten into the barrel. The conductor point pierces the tapped wire without compromising its conductive integrity. Insert stripped wires through the small cap, then tighten for an unprecedented multiple hookup using only one connector.

This package contains 6 tap connectors for 12- to 18-gauge wires. Warranty: 30 days.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to use, works great, kind of bulky though, and I guess there's potential for the cap ends to loosen over time if subjected to excessive vibrations. That's just speculation on my part, it may not be an issue at all?

Pros: east to use

Cons: a little bulky

Wiring connectors

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

While I had some issue using these to install new speaker wires, tapping into existing factory speaker wire, it was only because the factory wire was so thin. The point on the connector was almost as wide as the speaker wire but I was able to get it through and connected. I suppose it was still much easier than splicing... Cool product. I didn't realize they were for 12-18 gauge wire until after the install since the Crutchfield associate recomended these for me I presumed they would work for my factory speaker wire since I was a novice installer and didn't know any better. I hope I don't have issues down the road but if I do maybe it will spark me to buy a new head unit.

Pros: Makes life easier for installs


Cool Connector

These connectors made things clean and easy. Recommended by the salesman and it was a great recommendation

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Excellent product line

Written by: Dave from East Aurora, NY on March 9, 2011

Although my review is for this particular pack, I purchased a few of every
assortment sold here so I had what I needed when I needed it. When I had to bury
my hands into the wiring "spaghetti" that existed while splicing my radio into the
electrical system, these taps and splices were all I used - not a single solder joint.
One suggestion, stuff some rags across the whole area below where you're
installing these and form them into a "cup" to catch the parts that might fall off
when you're assembling them and your hands are buried deep; I lost one part (of
the Posi-Tap, not my hand) and I doubt I'll ever see it again.



Great Way To Tap Into A Wire Without Cutting

Written by: James T from Elk Grove, CA on February 11, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These Posi-taps made it as easy as it could possibly be to tap into a ground wire
without cutting the wire, plus they create a secure, insulated, removable tap. Good stuff.



Best way to tap wires

Written by: Christopher from Birmingham, AL on October 3, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy to use. Well worth the few additional bucks over the lessor quality ones typically found at the local auto parts store. The time saving is worth the few extra bucks. Worked perfectly for me.



Great Product

This product is great! Easy to use.



Well Made but not Fail Safe - Not good for speaker taps.

Written by: Scott from Seattle, WA on August 7, 2007

Well made product but not good for all wire connections. This is not apparent from packaging and instructions.

Used tap-its to tie into factory rear door speaker wire with speaker wire from main amp. After install, no sound from rear speakers. Assumed correctly that tap-its not providing adequate connection. Had to cut factory wires and install butt connections. Speakers worked.

Did not try on any 12 volt hot wires but would probably work on these.

  • 6 Black 12- to 18-gauge Posi-Tap connectors

Product Research


Overview: This connector kit comes with 6 Posi-Tap tap connectors. Posi-Tap connectors allow you to tap into wires without cutting or stripping them. Each connector has a tapered design and a threaded cap on each end. Just insert wire to be tapped into the large cap (this is the Tap end) and hand tighten into the barrel. The conductor point pierces the tapped wire without compromising its conductive integrity. Insert the stripped wire through the small cap (this is the Accessory end), then tighten. An internal conductor runs the length of the Posi-Tap, giving you a solid electrical connection. The Posi-Tap connectors are vibration proof, fully insulated, and reusable.

Note: If multiple wires are inserted into the accessory cap, the stripped wire ends should be twisted together.


  • Posi-Tap Connectors: compatible with 12-18 gauge wire on both the Tap end and the Accessory end
    • Length: 1.42"
    • Maximum Diameter: 0.51"
    • Width of Slot in Large Cap (Tap end): 0.11"
    • Diameter of Hole in Small Cap (Accessory end): 0.22"
