Overview

Our take on the Posi-Products™ Wire Connectors

Posi-Tap™ connectors tap into hot leads without cutting 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.

Super convenient

Peter from Albuquerque, NM on 3/19/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are a very easy way to tap into wires without using those crappy side by side taps you find at the auto parts store. They gave me a clean connection on the first try and solved the intermittent connection issues I'd been having up to that point. My only complaint is that I wish they came in a slightly shorter size. I feel like I've seen mini posi-taps in other gauges.

Pros: Easy to use No wire stripping Reusable

Cons: Doesn't come in a large enough pack size to do four speakers A bit tall for confined spaces

Great product

Don from Truckee, CA on 3/16/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Makes tapping into the speaker wires from the head unit very easy. Eliminates the need to cut wires and they're reusable.

Pros: No cutting of wires, easy to use. Makes tapping into head unit speaker harness very easy.

Cons: Should be 8 in the package.

Pros:

Cons:

Excellent Design

Crutchfield customer from Mundelein, IL on 12/14/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Posi-taps and Posi-twists (purchased elsewhere) were an absolute lifesaver on my install. I was able to remove them due to a decision to rewire my backup camera and I only had to tape over the spot (as a precaution), but the wire was still usable. Not having to strip tiny 18 gauge stranded wire that is prone to fraying, and doing so with minimal slack in very tight and awkward spaces was totally worth it.

Pros:

Cons:

Posi-Products™ Wire Connectors

Kolin from Zionsville, IN on 8/10/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This worked great for me. I wasn't replacing speaker wire this time so I just tapped existing wires. Able to use in a tight space so that was helpful. We will see how it works long term. This was my first time using this product.

Pros: almost too simple

Cons: Had to watch a video on how to use it the right way. The wire inserting from the top doesn't seem like it should work but it does.

Posi-Products Connector Kit

Crutchfield customer from Deer Park, TX on 7/4/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I personally have never used a wire connector. I in the past, cut and solder much of the wiring I need to do... And it hasn't been much. However, these connectors are easy to use. I used them for the Pioneer ND-BC8 camera I installed with the Pioneer AVH-X5800BHS head unit. I tapped aux power (red wire) at the harness & tapped the reverse wire for the head unit. As I said earlier, I had little experience using wire taps/connectors, however these were very simple to use.

Crutchfield customer from Portland, OR on 4/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Cool little product but not super useful when dealing with 20 and 22 awg sizes. After a faulty power connection, I switched all the taps to old school butt splices and have been good since.

Pros: Easy to use. No need for crimp tool or soldering.

Cons: Finicky with small wiring

Great product

Albert from Conway, AR on 4/9/2017

Gregory from Joliet, IL on 3/30/2017

Crutchfield customer from Midlothian on 2/27/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used these when installing a on dash USB charging port on my 4Runner. I needed to tap into the ash trays power port, and these taps worked perfectly. I could have drug out the soldering gun, but using these was so easy and quick. They work much better than the old crimp style taps that are so common and give nothing but trouble. I'm sold on using these the next time I need to tap into a wiring harness, but would rather not cut and splice the wires.

Never Solder Again from Milwaukee, WI on 6/10/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

How did I ever get along before, without these great connectors! We used these connectors to tap into the rear speaker wires to run high-level leads to a new powered subwoofer. No cutting the factory wires! No damage if you try the wrong wire and need to remove it! No soldering! This is the best advancement ever in do-it-yourself car stereo installation! Buy lots of these! You'll really thank yourself for it!

John from Florida on 1/9/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am an electrical engineer and usually prefer to solder my 12 volt wiring but when the wiring is in a difficult place to solder or the hook up is temporary or I may remove the item at a later date, I prefer to use the posi tap wire taps as they do not damage the wire being tapped into and in several years of use, have never had a bad connection or one that failed.

Pros:

Cons:

Easy to use

Easy to use

TomC from Massachusetts on 12/27/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very simple to use and they make a great connection.

Pros: Makes a secure connection that is also protected by the outer shell of the plastic.

Cons: Very difficult to use one handed. Most of the times I used these taps I was using two hands, but there was once I had to get behind my radio through my glove box in my corolla and could only fit one hand. It was very difficult to turn the screw with my pinky and ring finger, while holding the wire in place with my index and thumb. It would be awesome if there was a tool to use these one handed, would make them perfect.

Eliminate the need to splice wires together the old way. A nice clean splice.

Pros: Easy to use Straight forward directions

Cons: A little tricky to line up on the tiny wires, go slow Had a bent one that was impossible to use but didn't need to use the whole package so it was okay

Good tap

Crutchfield customer from Chicago, IL on 8/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Took off 1 star for price (ridiculously expensive) and 1 star for not being a dummy proof tap. You need to ensure that the spike is going into the wire and doesn't push it out of the way. It's a great way to tap without damaging or completely cutting a wire.

Pros:

Mdlbldrnt from Sioux Falls, SD on 4/6/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Recommended to me by Crutchfield. At first they seemed a bit strange to use. Once I got them connected they provide a great easy connection without a whole lot of work. Allows for disconnect as well if needed.

Pros: Simple and quick way to tap into wires

Cons: make sure to size correctly. wire must be kept centered for the tap to pierce the center of the wire

Just what I needed

DiscoKing from Greensboro on 11/12/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These actually worked out pretty good. The wire I tapped into was just the right size. I extended the rear view camera cable from my head unit and tapped this wire into my reverse wire. The wire was just the right size. Just make sure you order the right size otherwise you will run into problems like previous posters

Pros: Easy way to tap into a wire

Cons: Wish more sizes were available.

Dustin from Heber Springs, AR on 9/26/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They might be a good idea, but the whole system install problem came to these. The prong that is supposed to puncture the wire just pushed the wire to the side. I did use them, but had to manually poke the hole and line it up. They worked out, but was a pain in my case.

Pros: Quick and clean

Cons: The prong never punctured the wire on its own for me.

Easiest part of my amp install

S. Kusen from Brookhaven, PA on 9/4/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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. quality of the connection.

Cons: pricier than I prefer

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very cool wire connector. Easy to use. Much nicer than having to split a wire and use a traditional wire connector.

Pros: Easy to use, neat

Cons: None

Easy to use, but be careful of the proper wire gauge

John K from Boston area, MA on 11/6/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These connectors made it simple to tap into the factory wiring behind the factory plug of the accessory cable. However, due to the small size of the wires, I had a little trouble getting a good connection with this size kit. I'd recommend one size smaller of these T connectors if you're planning to tap accessory wires (such as steering wheel controls or auxiliary jack wiring)

Pros: Easy, no soldering, no tape needed

Cons: Need to be careful about what gauge wire you're tapping, and order the correct size tap connector.

Caused more trouble than Good

Milkman from Indiana on 7/30/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used both the Posi-Pruducts on my install last week and have to comment that I love the connectors, but wasn't a big fan of the taps. Primarily for one reason: Every wire that I went to use these on were clearly a smaller gauge wire than this product was designed for. I ended up having to do some troubleshooting only to find out that the wire was simply pushed to the side of the needle and no connection was actually being made. In the end I did get this product to work but just be aware and look for penetration and meter out your connection before moving to the next wire. In the end I would just recommend getting two packs of the quick taps and saving yourself the trouble of not knowing if your connections are being made.

Pros: Work Great! Just like the quick-taps!!!

Cons: Wrong size for my application.I partially take the blame for this, but these were in the "suggested items" for my build so I assumed they would be tailored for my application.

Excellent and Easy to use

Mike from Green Bay, WI on 7/20/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is one of the easiest connectors for electronics that I have ever used. No solder needed, no wire strippers needed (in most cases). Tighten the main body to the wire to be tapped, then insert the other wire/wires and screw on the end piece to make the connection. It really could not be simpler. If you are tapping multiple wires into one, then strip about 1/8" before inserting. The main body has a puncturing "tack" that penetrates the outer case of the wire and makes the connection. When (if) the connector is removed, the damage to the case is minimal, but you can just wrap a little electrical tape on it to fix that. I tested each connection as I went with a continuity tester, but it was completely unnecessary.

Pros: Easy to use, and FAST!

Cons: Smaller gauge wires get pushed aside by the main body "tack" instead of puncturing the casing. In order to tap these wires, cut a tiny section of wire casing off (1/8") or so, then when you screw the main body on, make sure the 'tack" contacts the bare wire section. There are different sizes of the posi-tap, maybe I just wasn't using the right size.

"Tap into wire without cutting or stripping" - Meh.

Dave from Boston, MA on 7/9/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Cheap, Quick, or Good. Pick two. Instructions on the pack explicitly instruct user to strip back wire sheath on small gauge wires. Do the job right the first time - skip these and go with solder or crimp connectors.

Pros: Quick and Dirty

Cons:

Does not work on small gauge wire

JimR from Malta, OH on 7/8/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wasted a lot of time before I realized these do not work with small gauge wire. Crutchfield recommended that I buy these - only place to use was with Axxess AWSC steering wheel control (as suggested in Crutchfield Installation video) and it would not penetrate small wire after multiple tries. I had to improvise and do my own connection after cutting the wire and splicing instead of tapping.

Pros: Don't waste your time unless you're tapping larger wires.

Cons: Do not work on small wires.

dt63944 from East Aurora, NY on 4/4/2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For all those behind-the-radio wires, these can't be beat. Buy yourself 3 packs of these and maybe one of the assorted-size kits before you install a new stereo and you'll not regret the professional, neat, safe and secure job these make possible, plus you'll have some left over for future alterations and additions.

Hands-on research

Product Research

Features

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.

Dimensions:

  • Posi-Tap Connectors: compatible with 14-18 gauge wire on the Tap end and 18-24 gauge wire on the Accessory end
    • Length: 1.25"
    • Maximum Diameter: 0.385"
    • Width of Slot in Large Cap (Tap end): 0.1"
    • Diameter of Hole in Small Cap (Accessory end): 0.15"

Easy to install, and work well. [ JERRY F  Jan 27, 2016 ]
After ordering a Pioneer video receiver and the steering wheel control adapter, I reviewed the install instructions that Crutchfield provided. It was then that I realized I was going to have to tap into factory wires. After a little more research on Crutchfield's site, I found a video showing how to install the steering wheel control and that's where I learned about these awesome t-taps. I only wish Crutchfield would have recommended these up front so I could have saved the $7 on shipping. [ Brian  Jan 17, 2016 ]

3 questions already asked

Yes. 18 gauge is very common for factory systems. [ Ryan  Oct 18, 2018 ]  Staff
Yes it will work [ Jesus  Nov 01, 2017 ]
Yes that is what i bought them for worked very well would recommend. [ Arthur  Oct 31, 2017 ]
I don't remember exactly, but I think a 14 or 12 gauge would fit. If your tapping into the speaker wire, from a sound quality and amp point of view, won't the wire your tapping into be the limiting issue in the circuit anyway . [ MICHAEL  Sep 13, 2017 ]
