Video Transcript for Deka Heat Shrink Ring Terminal Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Deka quarter-inch heat shrink ring terminal for 16 to 14 gauge wire. That's going to be part number DW05737-1. Our heat shrink ring terminal is going to keep out all of that moisture and debris that could potentially cause corrosion build-up inside the connector. It's going to be especially useful in applications, like this, where it's going to be on the outside of either a vehicle or a trailer, where it's going to be exposed to the elements. It's also going to come in handy if you have a boat trailer, where it's going to be near a lot of water.Because, unlike traditional style ring terminals, it's going to be sealed at the back. Whereas with the other one, it's going to have an opening and potentially having a opening at the front.

Where we're going to have wires really close to that ring. Where it could, again, get that moisture in there and cause a lot of corrosion. A ring terminal is going to work with 14 to 16 gauge wire. And the ring, itself, is going to be a quarter-inch inner diameter. It's going to be perfect for those ground wires with the self-tapping screw, or any other small terminal that you can fit a quarter-inch ring around.The heat shrink is going to be a nylon.

If you just take some heat and apply it to it, it will shrink right around that wire and give it that extra durable coating, but also still be flexible enough that we can move the wire around and not have to worry about it breaking, or moving it around inside the terminal. We're going to be using our ring terminal for our ground wire coming out of our junction box on our trailer. We already have a hole drilled, so we're just going to measure out about how much wire we're going to need. It doesn't hurt to give yourself a little bit of extra. We'll cut off the excess and we'll strip back the end of the wire.We'll take our ring terminal, slide the bare wire in, and crimp it in place.

Just need to apply some heat, so we can shrink down that connector. We're going to be using a heat gun. That way I don't have to worry about it charring or burning the connector or the wires. We'll taking a self-tapping screw, put it loosely in place, and come back with a nut driver and tighten it up.That will finish up your look at the Deka quarter-inch heat shrink ring terminal, part number DW05737-1.

Deka Ring Terminal - Heat Shrink - 16-14 Gauge - 1/4" Ring ID - Nylon Insulation - Blue - Qty 1 - DW05737-1

Worth the money compared to the cheap hard-plastic versions...especially for marine applications. Suggest to still use shrink tubing on top of the heat shrink on the ring terminal...slide a piece of shrink tubing onto the wire, heat/shrink down the terminal first, then slide down your tubing and shrink on top of everything for a lasting connection.

- DW05737-1

Order was complete and delivered in a timely manner. Only problem (minor) was the 7way pigtail was not wired to color code. Had to use test light to get 3 of the wires in correct location. Could be a problem if someone wasn't comfortable with ringing out wires.

- DW05737-1

I ordered multiple items from etrailer and the experience was perfect. The products arrived exactly as described with super fast shipping (standard option). The communication was frequent and thorough. This company knows good customer service. I didn't have any issues, but don't have any worries with this company if any come up.

  • How to Create a Better Ground for a Clearance Light on a Trailer
    Since you have already determined that it is a ground issue (which is almost always the problem) I would try sanding down the area you are installing the clearance light on. A good ground will have a solid connection to a clean, bare metal surface. If the screws are loose (as you found) or the metal has some paint or debris on it there could be some issues. If that doesn't work you can also try using a ring terminal like part # DW05737-1 and some 16 Gauge Wire # 16-1-1 to create...

  • How to Ground a Trailer Light and Corrosion Prevention
    Yes, as long as you do not break continuity in doing so. I suggest you complete steps toward grounding trailer lights, verify proper grounding with meter or probe before addressing the area of concern. Once you have completed the process, check continuity one final time. I prefer to use a heat shrink ring terminal such as # DW05737-1 attached to grounding wire and a self tapping screw such as # FA1131822. The use of a self tapping screw will allow continuity of ground by way of...

    The Optronics LED Clearance or Side Marker Light w/ Reflex Reflector part # MCL31AB mounts by running two screws like part # 1131832 though the base. In order to access these screw holes you will need to remove the lens. I have attached a photo that shows the screw holes. I have also attached an install video for you as well. In order to make the wiring connections you will also need part # DW05714 and part # DW05737-1.

  • Simple Light Needed for Horse Trailer Tack Room
    The easiest thing to use/install is the NightMinder RV Task Light # NM-Motion-011. This is a battery powered light that uses 3 AAA batteries (not included). All you need to do is get rechargeable batteries to avoid purchasing batteries constantly. It would also be good to get at least 6 batteries so you can have some charging while the others are in use. Obviously if you want to use more than one of this light then you'll want to get the appropriate amount of batteries. If you'd like...

  • Can Electric Drum Brakes Be Installed on Prestige Boat Trailer
    Electric drum brakes are more common on boat trailers than they once were, and for the very reasons you mention: lower cost and easier installation than hydraulic surge brakes. More and more marine trailers are being factory-equipped with electric drum brakes and they can be used safely by always unplugging the trailer connector from the tow vehicle before the trailer enters the water. I linked a helpful overview article on this process that covers the whole conversion and all the items...

  • Noco Genius Gen 3 10amps x 3 tank Wire Extension
    The NOCO Genius Gen3 already has the fuse on each line and they don't have the extensions available for this model. You can extend the wires, but if you alter your wiring, you will void your warranty. You only need to extend the wires and put the ring terminals on either end to give yourself a working solution. I recommend using wiring # 16-1-1, and ring terminals # DW05737-1. You will simply use a bolt and nut to connect the two wires...but make sure the negative and positive wires...

You can use the attached diagram to help you with color and function on the trailer side. I recommend using the 12 Gauge Black Primary Wire - per foot # 12-1-1. You can use ring terminals # DW05705-1 and butt connectors like # DW05745-10. You can use 16 gauge wire like # 16-4B-1 along with ring terminals # DW05737-1 and butt connectors # DW05744-5.

  • Locating the CHMSL and Interior Light Wire to Wire SnugTop Shell on 2000 Chevrolet Silverado
    I can help you wire up your SnugTop Shell to your Silverado but there are no direct connectors to do this, you will have to hardwire it into your vehicles lighting circuits. There are a couple of places you can access a dedicated brake light only circuit on your 2000 Chevy Silverado. First, you can tap into the circuit behind the third brake light on the cab of the truck. The brake light wire might also be located in the back of the vehicle. Some Silverado trucks come with the brake...

    To wire the RV Euro Style Interior Double Ceiling Light with Built-In Switch # RVIL22 to your old camper with 12V battery system, you will simply connect the black wire to 12V power, and then the white wire will connect to any metal that is in some way attached to your trailer frame. You will want to use a self-tapping screw like # FA1131822 along with a ring terminal like # DW05737-1. I recommend connecting your 12V power and testing the ground location before tapping to ensure function....

    There are 2 wires that are coming out of the actuator in the Titan Disc Brake Kit # T4843300. You will want to connect one to the 5-Pole connector on your trailer and ground the other one using a Ring Terminal # DW05737-1; it doesn't matter which wire is used for which purpose. If you only have a 4-Pole connector on your trailer then I recommend using the Hopkins Endurance 5-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM47910 instead.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Wiring with Brittle Ground Wire That Keeps Breaking
    If the wire is that fragile, I recommend replacing it now. If you can find a part of the wire to splice into then you can absolutely do that, but if it is too fragile then it won't provide a good ground and the other wires in that harness are likely made of the same material. If you can find a solid point of the wiring you can splice in # 16-1-1 with butt connector # 05731-5 and ring terminal # DW05737-1. I recommend the 35 Ft 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness - Wishbone Style - 42" Ground...

Simply cut the white wire with the ring terminal and use butt connectors to splice in the length of wire. You'll also need butt connectors to connect the two # 3040-P wiring adapters together. The blue and black wires are 12 gauge and the red and white wires are 16 gauge. You'll have extra connectors from...

    The Optronics Oval LED Trailer Turn Signal and Parking Light # STL78AB uses a separate white ground wire along with the two power input wires, black for parking and red for turn. Odds are your original incandescent lights used their mounting hardware to establish the ground so you'll want to find a suitable bare metal surface to make that connection using a ring terminal like # DW05737-1 (order two).

You may want to use the Female Spade Terminal Quick-Disconnect # DW01899-1, butt connectors # DW05743-5, and Deka Ring Terminals # DW05737-1.

  • MaxxAirFan Installation to Independent Car Battery
    Your MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan and Thermostat # MA00-05100K will require a minimum of 5 amp service. I recommend installing a 15A inline fuse or 20 amp circuit breaker like # PK54220 to protect your fan components. The manual doesn't state anything about this setup, so it is simply my recommendation as precautionary. You can use # 16-1-1 wire and ring terminal # DW05737-1. I recommend butt connector # DW05744-5 to connect to fan power leads.

These are both 2 wire LED lights that will allow you to add marker lights to your current system without issue. You can simply splice these into your current wiring to add the additional lights you desire. For connection, I recommend # 16-1-1 wire and heat shrink butt connectors # DW05744-10.

  • Replacement 4-Way Trailer Connector and Ground Wire
    The white wire on a 4-way trailer connector is usually for the ground. The reason your lights are not working is because this connection is severed. If you cannot re-attach the wire using a butt connector like part # DW05744-5 then you can replace the 4-way with part # HM48192. If a new ground wire needs to be ran you can use part # DW02359-1 (per foot), part # DW05737-1, and part # FA1131822. The ring terminal will need to be attached to a bare metal surface free of paint.

  • Troubleshooting Vehicle 4-way Connector Having No Ground When Plugged Into Trailer
    Since the ground issue on the 4-way connector on your vehicle only occurs when the trailer is plugged in, it sounds like the trailer ground is bad. First I would make sure that the main ground to the tongue of the trailer from your new 4-way connector is secure to clean corrosion free metal. Next if your trailer has an aluminum frame or a tilt bed you will likely need to run jumper wires from the mounting hardware of each light to the main ground on the tongue, as these style trailers...

  • How to Install Ground Wire for LED Light That Replaces Stud-Grounded Light
    Most likely the original lights you are replacing used the mounting hardware/stud to make the ground connection to the trailer frame. This is not unusual. A light such as # ST52AA uses the mounting stud to establish ground while the similar light # STL52ARB has a white wire for ground. All you need to do is connect the new light's white ground wire to a clean bare metal spot on the trailer, using a ring terminal like # DW05737-1 or you could run a ground jumper wire up to a wiring junction...

    I was not able to reference the tow smart light kits you are referring to but a trailer taillight will ground one of two ways. They can either ground using a single wire (usually white) or through the mounting hardware. If they ground using a single wire then that wire will need to be attached to a bare metal part of the trailer frame with a screw like part # FA1131822 and a ring terminal like part # DW05737-1. If there is any paint on the ground location then you will need to sand it down...

Since the Steel Armored LED light that you referenced has 2 wires (one for power and one for ground) you would need a ring terminal like part # DW05737-1 and a self-tapping screw like part # FA1131822 for the ground.

This will require ring terminal # DW05737-1. We also have shorter 10-inch length right-angle 2-prong plug # A49PB. You can use butt connectors like # DW05744-5 to make connections to the existing trailer wiring.
