About the Accele CR-101HS-20

Crimp then seal via heat gun

This waterproof butt connector from Accele features a crimp section, to bond wires together strongly, and heat shrink tubing loaded with hot glue, which creates a waterproof seal when heated. You slip a crimp + shrink connector over one wire, twist the two stripped wire ends together, slip the connector back over the splice point, crimp with your crimping tool, and then heat it with a heat gun or hair drier. The crimp will hold the wire strands together, the hot glue will melt to form a waterproof seal, and the shrink wrap will hold it all tightly together. Voila! You've got two wires connected together with a waterproof seal using wire strippers, a crimping tool, and a heat gun. Warranty: 1 year.
