Posi-Products connectors help make quick, easy, and reliable electrical connections with no crimping, soldering, or messy tape. Their Posi-Tap™ mini tap connectors allow you to 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 stranded wire without compromising its conductive integrity. Then, you insert one or more stripped wires through the small cap, and hand tighten for a multiple hookup using only one connector.
This package contains 6 mini tap connectors designed for 20- to 22-gauge wires. Warranty: 60 days.
These things work! Great product, time & labor saver!
Great product easy to use. Good connections.
Pros: Very easy to use.
I only used 2 of them but they seemed to work very well.
Pros: Quick and Easy
Can't say enough good things about these! Being a novice though I screwed up on the first connection by cutting the car harness wire before tapping into it. I didn't realize the design allows you to slip the connector over the wire, I assumed it had to go through, pretty bonehead as that's the whole idea behind the design. It makes a very small hole in the factory wire so if you ever want to remove the connection, you just unscrew it and put a little electrical tape over pin hole.
Pros: Easy to use, fast works flawlessly.
Cons: Instructions on back could be better. For the complete novice they should make it more graphically clear not to cut the factory harness wire before installing connector. Seems elementary but with first time users with no previous stereo install experience its an easy mistake to make.
These work great for fast and worry free connections for taping into other wires for power. If you also use die-electric grease it would help withstand the elements.
Pros: much better than scotch connectors because those usually end up cutting some of the wire strands
Great product for low voltage tie ins.
Pros: Easy to use and can be reused
Cons: limited sources
Great little connectors, easy to use.
Pros: Great for small wire connecting, allow for easy removal without cutting wire
Cons: Don't try to put a bunch of wire in one connector.
Absolutely the best connectors made
Pros: Makes any wiring application a snap
Cons: Limited places to buy
These are hands down the best style and quality wire tap you will find. I used these to tap into my existing wiring harness and all I can say is they work flawlessly. Very tight and secure as well.
Pros: Pretty much everything about them
Cons: None found by me.
Excellent product, perfect for this type of install. Easy to use, works in tight spaces, just make sure when you screw the wire into the top of the tap, you push in so that insulation is seated in the tap.
Pros: Ease of installation, excellent for close quarter work. Reusable! Good connection right off the bat.
Cons: I had one connector break when I went to re-use it.
They definitely do the trick!
Pros: They work.
Cons: Price seems high for something this small, but I know I'm paying for the functionality, not the material.
Worked just fine.
Very easy to use, IF you make sure the wire is seated in the slot & then screw the connector very firmly in. Saves huge amounts of time/soldering, etc. Will order these again.
So simple and easy to use
The connectors are sorta the best thing since sliced bread for us do-it-yourself installers (and pro's probably). I can write a massive amount of elation for the product but truthfully all that matters and I care about when reading review is that the product works. The product works, 'nuff said.
Pros: It works! Makes installation a breeze, high quality.
Cons: none really
Great product. I did not need to strip and crimp the wires together.
Great product, not having to cut, splice, witetap, etc... makes it so easy. May look a little difficult at first but if you read the directions, no problem.
Pros: Very easy to use, cuts your installation time way down.
Easy to use and work fine but a little difficult to get on with larger gauge wire
excellent product made installing unit very easy
Pros: easy to use, makes a good connection
Easy to use
Pros: Quick and positive connection
Excellent easy to use connector for do it your self project for amateurs and professional alike.
Great product for make quick and quality connections. Easy to remove if necessary. Add two little dabs of silicone and it is easily protected from the weather.
Pros: Fast, Easy, Removable
Wasn't sure when I order these if they would work. But they made my install of new speakers extreme easy. A little pricey but I won't do another install without them.
Easy to use, Work well if you don't want to cut wires.
Pros: They work well
With this product you make a clean wire connection and if you have to remove the connection, there will be no damage, like if there were never a connection there.
Pros: Clean, neat, professional job, every time.
Cons: Didn't find any
wish this product was available over 20 years ago, made my connections a breeze
Pros: easy connect
These are sooo much better that other brand. Easy to use and more reliable than the alternative.
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.

Simplify & secure connections [ Francisco May 10, 2016 ]
To make it easier to tap into speaker wires. [ Alejandro May 08, 2016 ]
After buying two similar products reviews said these are the best. [ Richard Mar 30, 2016 ]
Easiest way to tap into existing wires. No cutting/splicing. [ J.R. Feb 20, 2016 ]
Recommended by someone who completed a similar install and really wished he had bought these beforehand. [ Robb Dec 07, 2015 ]
They will fit just fine, but I don't believe they offer any better or faster connection than regular old butt connectors. [ TRAVIS D Dec 04, 2014 ]
I found that they worked quite well. I used them to connect a new Sony receiver to a Honda wiring harness connector that i got from crutchfield. So i was able to do all of the wiring and connections in good light sitting in my living room. Once i was done all i had to do was pull the factory radio and plug in my new radio. I had to plug in the antenna connector as well but it was simple. Best connector i have used yet. After you have done a connection or two it is pretty simple and quick. I've been installed for some time now and no issues. Scott [ SCOTT Dec 04, 2014 ]
The size wires they fit are listed on the packages. I love them because they are reusable, too. If you cannot see the sizes on the packages you could go to the posi-products website to see, then return to. Crutchfield to purchase. (Factory charges postage, crutchfield does not and is very fast getting them to you!) [ FREDERICK A Dec 03, 2014 ]
The wires on all car stereos are the same size/gauge. The only exception would be amps and or speaker upgrades. So the answer is yes, they will fit to your sony [ STEPHEN Dec 03, 2014 ]
