Our take on the Posi-Products™ Wire Connectors

by Buck Pomerantz
Posi-Products

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 an assortment of 6 tap connectors: two for 10- to 14-gauge, two for 14- to 18-gauge, and two for 20- to 22-gauge wires. Warranty: 30 days.

Features

Posi-Tap Connectors: Posi-Tap connectors allow you to tap into wires without cutting or stripping them. Each connector has a threaded cap on each end. Just insert the wire to be tapped into the slot in the threads of one 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 stripped wires through the hole in the other 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.

Feeling Positive About Posi-Taps!

Written By Jack G., St. Cloud, MN on Friday, December 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I don't like cutting into factory wire harnesses when I don't have to, and Posi-Taps allow me to not "have to." They also allow me to do a quick disconnect if I want to restore the original wiring configuration. These will be in my toolbox from now on!
Pros:
Quick and easy to use. Come in multiple sizes for a variety of uses.
Cons:
Price point is a bit high.

Posi-Taps are just what you are looking for!

Written By Big "D", Norfolk, VA on Friday, July 05, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was in need of an easy way of tapping the ignition wires in my truck to the wiring harness on a remote starting kit. The trouble is the ignition wires are up under the dash, with about an inch and a half of play. There was no way to use the kit supplied T-Tap style wire connectors. After researching online, I found some posts about Posi-Taps. I found them on the Crutchfield site, and ordered them up. I got the mixed set of three sizes. They work wonderfully! I pre-installed 8" lengths of wire pigtails to one end of each, then reached up into the tight area under the dash and slipped the slotted back pieces on one by one, tightening down to make a secure connection. Then I just used male/female crimp-on spade plugs to connect to the remote starting harness to my homemade pigtails. Almost too easy for an impossible job!
Pros:
Simple design, reusable, excellent connection points
Cons:
None so far!

These are great products for tapping into existing wires. I much prefer these to the connectors that require you to crimp as often I am working in very tight spaces where crimping can be next to impossible. I am way more confident that my connection will last using this product.
Pros:
Ease of use and quality of connection
Cons:
none

Tap it makes wire installation and tapping very easy. Wish I had purchased another pack. I would recommend this in any wire installation when improving your audio system.

I am an amateur when it comes to instilation. Theses things make tapping a wire so much easier. I used them to install a USASpec iPod unit on my Volvo. It made it super easy. A great product!

These are much better than the ones I bought locally. They were not as easy to use and stripped a lot of wire away. Replaced them with these and I am a happy camper at how they turned out.
