Heat shrink tubing makes your wiring look neat and professional. DEI's Hi-Temp Shrink Tubing shrinks down when heated to form a tight seal that protects your wire splices and connections from short circuits and moisture. You can also bundle wires together in harnesses without messy electrical tape.

These black heat shrink tubes come in 4-foot lengths and are available in 3 mm (approx. 1/8"), 6 mm (1/4"), and 9 mm (3/8") diameters, as well as an assortment package that includes all three sizes. For splicing, use the 3 mm size for 16-gauge wire, 6 mm for 10-gauge, and 9 mm for 8-gauge. Warranty: 30 days.

Want a Professional Installation On a DIY Budget?....Then Use This

Written By Frank_M, Nash County, NC on Saturday, November 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Folks...take it from a shop teacher. DON'T use butt connectors, wire nuts, electrical tape, or masking tape (don't laugh, I've seen it). Invest in an inexpensive soldering iron and some solder and splice the wires together using solder and then insulating them with heat shrink tubing (Don't forget to slide the tubing on BEFORE soldering the wires together). Even a hair dryer will work. Take the time to do it right the first time and you won't be sorry. If you don't know how to use a soldering iron then take a few minutes to learn by watching a YouTube video then practicing on some scrap pieces of stranded wire like is used on the harnesses. I'm surprised Crutchfield does not offer an "Educational Section" for just such a purpose.

Pros: Perfect size for most any stereo installation.

Cons: None

The best price I've encountered for heat shrink tubing. The perfect size for the wires encountered with the wiring harness for the car stereos.

Pros: Correct size. Great price.

Cons: None

Thin Wall But Works

Written By EJCUSA1, Streamwood IL. on Sunday, February 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I use heat shrink tubing like its water. This tubing works but its not the best. I found some that has thicker walls and has a type of sealer in it. Shrinks and seals your solider connections.

Pros: Shrinks fast and stays in place.

Cons: Thin wall, can and will peal.

Just what I was looking for

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got this for wiring my car receiver. Worked perfectly to cover the soldered wires. I'm not sure how well they insulate(I didn't look), but they fit.

Pros: Easy to use, and perfect for car receiver wires.

Cons: They shrink pretty fast? not that this is a con, but make sure the shrink won't move while you are heating it up. I ended up missing a couple times.

Works like a charm

Works as heat shrink. Able to just use a lighter and it shrinks right up. Holds well. I like it, and seemed to get an ample amount to work with.

I just used a lighter, but I had space to work and such, tight areas Idk if I'd have used a lighter or not. I just did a car audio install, so I was able to pull wire out and use the lighter to shrink it. [ Jeremy  Jul 15, 2014 ]
Yes. Either a heat gun of sorts or a butane torch, similar to what you'd use for soldering. Nothing fancy, just something that will activate the shrinking when the heat is applied. However, too much heat in one section will begin to melt it, since it is just plastic. The best way to figure it out is cut about a 3 inch strip of it off and run your heat source over it to get a feel on how it shrinks with what amount of heat. Then remember, you want about a quarter to half inch of material past whatever you're trying to put it on, shrink it and hook it up, then make sure the connection is still good (i.e. from your amps to speakers) and if it is, you're good to hook. Sorry about the in depth, but I figured if you're asking about a tool for it, I might as well describe the process as well. I do hope this helps. [ JUSTUS L  Jul 15, 2014 ]
It is best to use a heat gun, but if you have a hair dryer with a high-heat setting, that may do it for you. Be sure you get a tight, solid hold on the wire(s) if their purpose is to insulate (which is usually the main purpose, but often times I use heat shrink to tightly hold multiple insulated wires). I am not sure the best heat source temperature, but I'd say it'd probably fall in the 500-800 deg F range. Hope this helps. [ KENT DEREK  Jul 14, 2014 ]
A simple cigarette lighter will function just as well as a heat gun. Just wave the lighter across the tubing in a fluid manner avoiding direct heat for excessive periods. [ RYAN  Jul 14, 2014 ]
You can use a hair dryer and it will work OK, but you can also buy heat guns which are basically high-power hair dryers and they work a little better. [ John  Jul 14, 2014 ]
You'll need a heat gun to properly shrink the tubing. [ Robert  Jul 14, 2014 ]
Normally a heat gun, small torch out lighter id's all you need. [ FRANK  Jul 14, 2014 ]
A lighter is all you need. [ BRANDON  Jul 14, 2014 ]
