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 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.

Used these to resolve a failed clip connector splice. These are so much better and less damage to the wires. Worth the extra money to have a secure connection.

I was really surprised at how easy these connectors were to use. Also at how well they made a tight and rigid splice that, if needed, could be taken apart and reused. Great product for the application!!!! Thank you!!

These connectors work well, but require a little extra twisting to pierce the wire for great connection. However, once they're in place you're good to go! It's a handy connector to splice into a wire without headache.

Pros: Quick and Easy

Cons: None

Insanely great product!

Bill_audio from pleasanton, CA on 2/17/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Dave from Granada Hills, CA on 2/17/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Cons: none

Tap Connectors

Kal from Pennsylvania on 1/2/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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 work

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.

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 20-22 gauge wire on the Tap end and 18-24 gauge wire on the Accessory end
    • Length: 0.875"
    • Maximum Diameter: 0.28"
    • Width of Slot in Large Cap (Tap end): 0.065"
    • Diameter of Hole in Small Cap (Accessory end): 0.09"

1 question already asked

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 ]
