Overview

Our take on the Posi-Products™ Wire Connectors

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: two designed for 24- to 26-gauge, two for 20- to 22-gauge, and two for 18-gauge wire. Warranty: 60 days.

Quick and easy no solder option. Connections feel secure. I wrapped with electrical tape just add a little strength to the connection.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Wow, what a fantastic product! I have installed many amps and speakers to factory radios in the past. What did I ever do without these?! I have spliced into speaker wires in the past and accidently cut the wire. Then you have to re-splice and either use electrical tape. These things are so efficient! No more cut wires. No more electrical tape. No crimping! These are brilliant! Just make sure you get the right size. After you screw it in, make sure that you unscrew it and look inside to see that the pin actually punctured the wire. Also make sure that the splicing into the wire is the sharp side, otherwise it will never work

Pros: easy, quick, no crimping, no cutting, no tape

Cons: none

The posi wire splice is not as effective as the posi wire tap but still works well for very fast hook ups.

Pros: Quick and easy to use.

Cons: Expensive.

Great product!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These connectors, like all of the Posi-Products, work great and are easy to use. The instructions are extremely clear. They make solid electrical connections and the connection can't be pulled apart, like with wire nuts or sometimes even with crimp connections. Unlike crimp and solder connections, they can easily be undone if you've made a mistake or need to change or add things later on. The only problem I've had with them is due to me sometimes being a klutz. The parts are small and can be easy to drop when you're working in a cramped dashboard. I also wish that they were available locally. According to Murphy's Law, you 'll have one or two less than you need to complete a job and then you'll have to call the Crutchfield folks and wait a few days for more connectors to arrive. TIP: Order more than you need and put the ones you don't use in a zip lock plastic bag, along with the cardboard label from the package. That way you can see what you have and you'll have the package info that tells you what size they are and how to use them. Trust me, trying to reseal the package won't work too well and you'll probably end up with tiny parts all over the floor.

Pros: They work great!

Cons: I wish that they were available locally. Order more than you need.

JUST OK

Features

Overview: This connector kit comes with six Posi-Tap tap connectors, two each of three sizes. 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 wire to be tapped into 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 hole in 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.

1 question already asked

I don't think it really matters. I ended up using most of them. It really will depend on how tight the area where you're tapping into is. [ ANDREW  Feb 22, 2016 ]
Actually this package here includes an assortment of connectors with two designed for 24- to 26-gauge, two for 20- to 22-gauge, and two for 18-gauge wire and it would be your best option to use for installing the Axxess ASWC-1 adapter. While there's no set standard wire gauge for all vehicles, we've found they almost all use wires within 18-24 gauge sizes; so this should do the trick just fine for you. I hope that helps.
