Video Transcript for Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors Review

Today we'll be taking a look at a Deka line of Heat Treat Butt Connectors, available in five and ten packs, in a variety of colors and gauges here at Etrailer.com. We have one of the butt connectors out of the pack, take a quick look at it. It's labeled twenty-two and eighteen gauge wires, and the center section here, the metal part, is the actual butt connector itself. On the outside you've got the nylon covering, and these two large ends are parts that shrink down after you install your wires. It's a good idea to use a good set of crimpers, and also make sure you have your wires stripped back to about maybe a quarter inch. Then just crimp it down, bring your other wire in and do the same thing.

Then we'll apply heat to the butt connector to shrink up the wires. It'll take up the openings and seal our connection from dirt and water. Ideally you want to use a heat gun. You can direct the heat with it. If you don't have a heat gun available a lighter works as well. Using lighters get it hot after a while so it may be a good idea to use a barbecue lighter instead.

Since you can't direct the heat with this you'll probably have to apply heat a little bit longer than normal for the top side to shrink up as well. We'll go ahead and show our heat shrink butt connectors in typical application. In this case it's going to be behind a trailer light. We'll apply heat to go ahead and shrink the ends down and make a seal around the wire. We'll go ahead and do a test run and verify we have connection through our butt connector.

That'll do it for our review of the Deka line of Heat Shrink Butt Connectors. .

Just received my order of new backing plate assemblies and some misc small parts. Ordered on line late Sunday night, confirmed I had ordered the right parts Monday morning before shipment went out. Customer service by phone was superb and the gal I talked with was perfect. Shipment was on my porch Friday afternoon. I did open box and inspect shipment that arrived completely intact/good shape and all looked good at this point. Not sure when will get to the brakes on the trailer but will post again when the job is done. So far nothing but good to say about Etrailer.com. Regards, John. 299435

I really like the idea of any outdoor wiring connector that has self-sealing heat shrink. I don’t agree with the suggestion of using a lighter to activate the heat shrink—use a proper heat gun designed for this. 652252

I have to say it's an absolute pleasure dealing with etrailer. Not only did my package arrive on time as promised but the experience of dealing with the people at etrailer such as Tommy and Dani made it that much more of fun experience. There was not a problem with answering my questions if they did not know the answer they found out the answer and got back in touch with me. Their prices are great their products are good quality and there's so many good things to say about the company that I could go on and on. Keep up the good work and I will be doing all my trailer business with etrailer. Just check out their website and see how much more they have to offer. 402695

Being a new boat owner I was quickly overwhelmed by what I didn't know. Re-wiring, re-lighting my trailer was my first project. etrailer has a wide range of products, but most important to me, was their added product information and instructional information which helped me make the right selections to get this done. Add to that is their very competitive prices. etrailer will be my go to source for my future trailer needs. 313878

  • Replacement Tail Lights for an EZ Loader Boat Trailer
  • I do not know exactly what lights your boat trailer came with nor would we have an exact OEM replacement but we do have the Miro-Flex LED Trailer Tail Lights part # TLL28RK which are a submersible LED tail light that should work well for you. The lights mount via two bolts placed 2" apart on center. The circuit boards are sealed, which means that water will not damage the diodes or circuit boards. The lights do not come with sealed wiring connectors but you can add them using part #...

  • Is Heat Shrink Tubing Included in Deka Butt Connector DW05743-10
  • The Deka 22-18-gauge butt connector 10-pack, part # DW05743-10, already has built-in heat shrink tubing on the connectors so it is not necessary to add it. If you want to add an additional layer of protection from moisture and other contaminants you can apply Deka Self-Fusing Auto Tape # DW04367 around the entire connector after you have applied heat to the heat-shrink tubing.

  • I do have a way for you to install the Alpena LED Fog Litz 4 part # ALP77160 on your 2010 Mazda CX-7 but unfortunately I cannot recommend you use them inline with your low-beam headlights as you would likely exceed the maximum amp draw allowed for that circuit. In order to install the fog lights on your CX-7, I recommend using them with a toggle switch such as the LED Micro Bug Push Button Toggle Switch part # PL-SW28B.

  • Recommended Simplest Conversion for Trailer 4-Way Flat to 5-Way for Surge Brake Lockout & Jeep 7-Way
  • For your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 7-way trailer connector is already a huge help. I recommend simply using the 7-Way to 5-Way/4-Way Trailer Adapter # 707250 or the # 707250. This will give you the 5-way that includes the reverse function to allow you to add the solenoid lockout to your surge coupler. Using a Reverse Lockout Solenoid for Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuators - Non-Bypass # DM11993 or the Titan # T4748800 will allow you to backup without the braking pressure to your...

  • The Wesbar taillights you were looking at # 403026 and # 403076 would be a great replacement for your Peterson lights, I can even help you transfer the plugs to the Wesbar lights. First you will want to use wire snips to snip the plug off your currently light, I recommend doing this closer to the light than the plug to allow for extra wire to work with. Next you will need some butt connectors, I recommend the heat shrink type like Deka # DW05743-10, these will help keep moisture from...

  • Can Euro 7-Pin be Replaced by American 4-Way?
  • Sure, you can cut off the Euro 7-pin and add an American-style 4-way. I recommend using the Wishbone Wiring Harness # A20WB, which actually has five wires; it splits the running light wires so you do not have to run a jumper wire from tail light to tail light. You will need to do some splicing and you can use the accompanying diagram of a Euro 7-pin to see how they are typically wired. I recommend using butt connectors # DW05743-10 to connect the 20 gauge wires of the harness.

  • Wire Connector Recommendation for 20 Gauge Wire on Trailer
  • For a 20 gauge wire I would not recommend the use of a quick splice connector. The core of the wire would be too thin for it to work well. You would most likely end up cutting the core of the wire when tightening it. I would recommend soldering as the best solution and then beyond that butt connectors like the part # DW05743-10 would be the next best solution.

  • How to Replace a 4-Way Trailer Connector with 8 Wires
  • A 4-way trailer connector will have four functions which means it will also have four wires for the exception of wishbone harnesses. These four functions are ground, tail light, right turn, and left turn. The ground function will usually be represented with a white wire, the tail light function will usually be represented with a brown wire, the right turn signal will usually be represented with a green wire, and the left turn signal will usually be represented with a yellow wire.

  • What Gauge Wire Is Used On the Hopkins Endurance 4-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Harness?
  • The Hopkins Endurance 4-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Harness - 20' Long # HM48240 uses 18 gauge wire for the 3 lighting functions and 16 gauge for the ground wire. This is standard size wire for a 4-way flat harness, but the ergonomic grip on the connector for the easy pull disconnection is what sets this harness apart from others. I recommend using the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 22-18 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Red - Qty 10 # DW05743-10 for your light connections.

  • Converting 1997 Dutchman 6-Way Square to 4-Way Flat
  • Jayco does have their own system. I recommend cutting the harness as you stated and connecting them to a 4-way flat trailer connector to be compatible with your truck. To do this, you will simply need the Hopkins Endurance 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector - Trailer End - Ergonomic Design # HM48110 and a few butt connectors like the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 22-18 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Red - Qty 10 # DW05743-10. You may need to test each trailer wire for function using a battery...

  • Replacing 4-Way Connector on Trailer with 8 Wires
  • For just the needed 4-Way by itself I recommend the Hopkins Quick Fix # HMC20031 that features a removable cap that makes it easier to insert the wiring from your trailer. From the looks of the picture you attached you probably have three ground wires (white) and three running light wires (brown), the remaining green wire being for right side turn/brake and the yellow for left side turn/brake. With that being said I highly recommend still testing them each for function for verification...

  • Can Hair Dryer Be Used For Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors

  • Gauge of Butt Connector to Use with Wesbar Submersible Trailer Light
  • The Wesbar Submersible Trailer Light # 403076 uses 18 gauge wires so you'll need # DW05743-10 for heat shrink butt connectors. If you'd rather not use the heat shrinking type we have # 05730-5 as well. Heat shrink butt connectors are much better at keeping out moisture.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Installation Location at the Back of a 2008 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Some Nissan vehicles came with that 8-pin connector rather than a 6-pin like most others. There isn't a plug in harness or adapter for Nissan vehicles with the 8-pin connector, such as your 2008 Pathfinder, but there is an option for you. First, and what I recommend, is to use the harness you have, # 118267, but cut off the vehicle and harness side connectors and hardwire them together based on function. Use a circuit tester such as # 40376 or a meter such as # BTMT15 to test the wires...

  • What Is Wire Size For Parts And Recommended Connectors
  • I called the manufacturers to confirm wire sizes. The Optronics lights, Item # STL9RB and Item # MCL76AB, will have 20-18 gauge wires. The Electric Trailer Brake Kit, Item # AKEBRK-35, will have 12-10 gauge wires. I recommend using the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors. For the 20-18 gauge wires this will be Item # DW05743-10 and for the 12-10 gauge wires it will be Item # DW05745-10. If you need additional wire for your project, Item # 10-1-1 and Item # 10-2-1 are available. I...

  • Wiring Installation Kit To Properly Disconnect and Reconnect Wiring
  • The best way to keep Over 80" LED Trailer Light Kit # TLL160RK waterproof is to use heat shrink butt connectors. Since this assembly uses 20 gauge wire you will need # DW05743-10 to make the best connection. The butt connectors will help insulate the wire connection to keep the connection as dry as possible.

  • Recommended 4-Way Wishbone Trailer Wiring Harness for Boat Trailer
  • Based on color, I can't tell if you have functions that should be tied together or not. I've attached an article on trailer wiring to assist as you test functions. I recommend using a 12V battery to test the function of each wire on your trailer. When that function lights up, you will know what that wire function is and which pin on your vehicle side wiring that it should connect to. I recommend using the 4-way Wishbone Trailer wiring harness # A40W42B along with the Deka Heat Shrink...

  • How Are Trailer Tail Lights Wired
  • It sounds like you are trying to install trailer lights on your 2000 Ford F-150? This is not something I recommend doing and you should stick with automotive lights, but if you do decide to do it, trailer lights will need to splice into wires on your truck so you need to find the wires in your Ford that accompany each function by using a circuit tester such as # PTW2979. You will then need to connect those wires to the wires on the trailer light. For example, the Fusion LED Trailer...

  • Installing Fog Lights By Splicing Into OEM Wiring Harness in 2017 Ram 2500
  • We do not have a harness to wire your fog lights to your OEM fog light assembly. I recommend splicing into your fog light harness to hardwire your new fog lights. You can use a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to determine wiring function and then use butt connectors like the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector # DW05743-10 to make your connections.

  • How to Wire in Dual 4-pole Vehicle-Side Trailer Connectors on RV
  • There are several ways to have dual 4-pole flat vehicle wiring on your RV, depending on how the RV wiring is set up. If the RV uses a round U.S. Car connector at the back of its 7-way you could use two of part # 118384 in a daisy-chain set up. This would provide two 4-poles and keep your 7-way active. This is a plug-and-play option. If you don't mind a bit of cutting and splicing you could tap into the wiring that leads to the RV 7-way and splice in two of an item like # HM48030 using...
