Video Transcript for Deka Heat Shrink Ring Terminal Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Deka Heat Shrink Ring Terminal. You're simply going to tie all the grounds together and we'll attach the Deka Heat Shrink Ring Terminal and we'll simply heat shrink it. You're just going to heat up the outside and it'll melt around there and it's going to seal out any kind of dirt and grime or corrosion that could get inside there. You'll see it's going to shrink up and it just clamps around the wires. You want to make sure you have a nice clean spot to put your ground. Just simply scrape off any old paint, debris that's on there. You want to have a nice clean area with bare metal for your ground to attach.

We have a nice good tight ground. That's going to complete our look and install of the Deka Heat Shrink Ring Terminal.

Everything is working great. Your parts helped me put a nearly new, yet fender-bendered, trailer back together for a very reasonable price. It rolls down the road great! Ill probably be contacting you all again in the near future for a wiring harness for a trailer brake controller on my new-to-me F250 when the weather finally decides to dry out a bit!.

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?

  • Parts Needed for Custom Wiring a Trailer For Separate Turn and Brake Lighting
  • In order to have separate turn and brake lights on your trailer, I strongly recommend using a 2-wire to 3-wire converter, like the Tow Ready # 118158 on the trailer. This will allow you to have 4-way connectors on both the vehicle and the trailer. The 4-way connectors are much more common than 5-way connectors, and will allow to you tow other things with your vehicle, or tow your trailer with other vehicles, without the need for an adapter. This converter box is not designed to be exposed...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Installation in 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK
  • Your 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK does not have a plug-in brake controller port under the dash so wiring in a controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 will require hardwiring. We offer a complete installation kit # ETBC7 that includes all the parts needed, including a 7-way. Although you have a 7-way socket now, its not a bad idea to have a spare on hand. The kit includes the duplex wiring to bring brake and 12V power signals to your trailer connector, and circuit breakers and connectors to install...

  • Grounding the Optronics Thin Line Sealed LED Marker/Clearance Light # MCL-91AK
  • You are correct that the Optronics Thin Line Sealed LED Marker/Clearance Light # MCL-91AK that you referenced will require a jumper ground wire to be run to a metal portion of your trailer frame if it is installed on a plastic surface. You will want to use a ring terminal like # DW05740-1 to make a solid ground connection to the trailer frame. Sanding off any paint from the grounding spot will help ensure a good connection.

  • Recommended Installation of Vehicle Wiring for a Trailer on a 2011 Volkwagen Tiguan
  • I can help you wire up your 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan to have a versatile trailer connector. Since you are not needing the reverse lights connected, then you will only really need a 4-/7-way plug. Because of this I would instead recommend you go with the Tow Ready # 119190KIT. The Tow Ready kit also comes with a circuit tester, (5) quick splice wiring adapters, and has a slightly higher amp capacity over the Hopkins harness. To adapt a 4-way to a 7-way, I would recommend the universal...

  • Wiring Additional LED Lights On Yahama Royal Star Tour Deluxe Motorcycle
  • You would need to install a switch for the lights from the 12V battery. Since you are installing LED lights, you should not have any problems with power draw. We do not carry switches that are specifically designed for motorcycle lighting but you may want to take a look at the product page I attached for the switches we offer. You can add an inline fuse holder like part # SWC9545. Each of the lights will need to be grounded to the motorcycle so I recommend ring terminals like part...

  • What Wire Gauge Should Be Used When Installing the C-800 Klauber Stabilizer Motor
  • When installing the C-800 Klauber Stabilizer Jack Motor, # LC138445, the largest gauge wire possible should be used. I recommend 10 gauge wire running from the battery to the 20amp breaker and then to the motor. As well as on the motors ground circuit. I recommend using # 10-2-1 wire. The wire is sold by the foot and is a jacketed 2-10gauge wire. I also recommend the Deka Heat Shrink 12-10 Gauge Butt Connectors, # DW05745-5 and 2- Deka Ring Connectors, # DW05740-1 to connect to the...

  • Fuse Box Instructions for Installing a Brake Controller on a 2003 Chevy Silverado
  • Whether your 2003 Chevrolet Silverado came with a factory 7-Way or not, the wiring for both the brake controller and the 12V power pin on a 7-Way is already run. If you check out the video I attached of the Prodigy P2 # 90885 being installed on a similar 2003 Silverado you can see what needs to be done with the wiring under the fuse box at the 3:20 mark. You will just need to connect the Blue wires together and you will be good to go since you already took care of the Red wires. The...

  • Horse Trailer Brakes Lock Up When Using a 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector for Trailer Lights
  • You are correct that the wires from a 4-way flat trailer connector should have nothing to do with a trailer's brakes or a brake controller, and it is hard to say what is causing the trailer's brakes to activate. It is possible that somehow the wires for the turn and brake signal are touching the brake wires, causing the brakes to activate when the turn or brake signal is activated. You can try checking all of the trailer wires for damage, such as pinches or tears, where the wires could...

  • Diameter of Wire Terminals in Spectro Wire 38656 Trailer Wiring Junction Box
  • The terminals in the Spectro # 38656 are 1/4 inch in diameter, I've confirmed this with my Spectro Wire representative. The # DW05740-1 ring terminals would be compatible with the terminals in the junction box.

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector with Wiring for a 2007 Sportsman Trailer
  • For you I recommend the Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit # ET7WK. This comes with an 8 foot 7-Way connector, wire loom, a junction box, and ring terminals. Everything you need to install a 7-Way. The junction box makes troubleshooting lighting and other problems much easier. If you already have a junction box then you can use # H20044 and just use ring terminals. You would need 4 of # DW05739-1 and 3 of # DW05740-1. I have also included some links on testing and troubleshooting brake...

  • Where Should Ground from 7-Way Connector be Installed
  • You will simply want to connect your Ground wire to a clean, bare-metal surface on your vehicle. This can be done with a ring terminal like part # DW05740-1, which has a 1/4" ID, or part # DW05741-1, which has a 3/8" ID. i have attached a video of our Universal Installation Kit # ETBC7 being installed on a 2012 Ford Van where you can see this being done at the 2:00 mark.
