Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 22-18 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Red - Qty 5 - DW05743-5

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (77 Customer Reviews)

This red butt connector joins two lengths of 22-18 gauge wire. Insulated with heat-shrinkable nylon for adjustability and durability.

- DW05743-5
by:

The heat shrink works quite well. The only thing that kept me from giving a 5 star rating was the fact that I had two connectors "let go" of one of the wires after I had crimped it (with a crimping tool) and heat shrank (with a heat gun) the connector. This is a good product but buy more than you need because you may need to replace one.

These were taillights for a trailer. The LED lights were great and fit in the same location as the old lights but much easier to see and much safer.

Not much to say other than they work. Used them when replacing OEM tail lights with LEDs. Still going strong after one year.

Still going strong no issues in Central Florida high heat, humidity, and heavy rains.

First time using these. Hard time to use because of confined space. After heat shrinking, I applied dielectric grease too.

All my items were received in timely fashion. Great service @ etrailer. However, Dexter (I ordered original Dexter parts) needs to up the game on packaging. I ordered four hub assemblies and the bearings were placed in a plastic bag which I'm sure banged around on the hub. A bubble envelope would have been nice to protect the bearings. I'm looking forward to upgrading my trailer with new Dexter Nev-R-Adjust brakes as was getting tired of constantly manually adjusting the brakes. Glad that etrailer has all the parts I need to do the job.

I want to thank you for all your help with my trailer you were more helpful than you realize. So this is my trailer for a 22' Flats Cat shallow draft Catamaran. I totally dismantled my trailer and buffed by hand with a wire buffer and sand blasted in some spots and applied multiple coats of some very expensive galvanize paint (Z.R.C.). I installed all new C. E. Smith Carpet (about 80'), seven new LED waterproof lights, new springs, new equalizers, new tongue jack, new wench, new safety chain, new chain brackets, all new SS hardware and a 35' long wiring harness. I was able to send only one review with a picture of the safety chain and brackets. I'm having a little trouble with the rest..oh some of these items were bought locally or from your competitors, until I found ETRAILER. Your prices were cheaper for the exact same things. Your helpful how to videos were helpful. And Rose, your personal helpful knowledge made my buying experience very pleasant, I actually enjoyed talking to you! Thanks to ETRAILER and specifically to Rose G.

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.

Excellent products, shipped as promised and arrived on time. I have installed all the products. Although it took me longer then a professional installer, I had little to no issues. The online installation videos for all the parts (which were attached to the online order status sheet) made it extremely easy to install. The videos were of a professional actually installing the equipment step by step. etrailer.com has a customer for life.

They've been on a year and are still working well. Brighter than incandescent. Etrailer website extensive information (pictures, dimensions, demos, etc) helped me find the the exact match I needed. Install was easy. Hardest part was trying to do a neat job of sealing. I used a clear sealant, so it's not that bad.

  • How To Fix Power Wire On Voyager WiSight Backup Camera That Was Cut
    Thanks for the picture! Based on the picture you sent in you may have enough room to use heat shrink butt connectors # DW05743-5 to reconnect the cut wires. There should be one black wire, and one red wire. You will need to strip back the jacket on the wires, reconnect them using the # DW05743-5, and then can use black electric tape # PP47FR to cover the connections to make it blend in. If there is not enough wire sticking out of the back of the camera to use a butt connector you...

  • Determining Which LED Tail Lights For 1998 Ranger Trail Boat Trailer
    I may have an option, but unfortunately we do not have any LED tail lights that are exactly 6-1/2" x 2-1/2". Instead we have the Optronics Miro-Flex LED Trailer Tail Light - Stop,Turn, Tail - Submersible - 12 Diodes - Red Lens # STL22RBH which is 6-1/2" x 2-5/16" and is Sonically Sealed which will keep water from getting into the light making it a great option for a boat trailer like your 1998 Ranger Trail Boat Trailer. The # STL22RBH does have a plug so you will need the 3-Wire Pigtail...

  • Re-Wiring Furrion Camera System to Running Lights Circuit
    The best way to locate the running lights circuit wire on your trailer is to simply use a circuit tester like # PTW2979 on the wiring behind one of the tail light assemblies. When the trailer's hooked up to the vehicle and you have the running lights activated test each of the wires to see which one is carrying power. Then it's just a matter of running the power wire from the Furrion Camera System # FOS43TASF to this wire using some butt connectors like # DW05743-5. This will make it...

  • Changing GLOLight LED Combination Trailer Tail Lights on a Boat Trailer
    The only thing extra that you may have to do is find a suitable mounting location for the white ground wire. Sometimes older lights ground through the mounting hardware but the GLOLight LED Combination Trailer Tail Light # STL116RB grounds through the white wire with the ring terminal on it. Asite from that I do recommend using heat shrink butt connector like part # DW05743-5 for a water-tight seal to keep the wiring from becoming damaged. You referenced the passenger side taillight....

These two options are identical excepting color. They have LED lights that are bright and will last far longer than traditional incandescent lights. The screw mounting holes are exactly 4” apart like you current ones, so this will be a quick and easy swap out. The other measurements are with in...

  • Will Optronics LED Lights Corrode
    I can't speak for the lights you used but the Optronics LED lights, part # TLL160RK, won't corrode as long as they're installed and used properly. With any trailer lights, even submersible lights, I recommend unplugging your trailer connector before putting them underwater. Also, since the wiring connections aren't considered a submersible part of the light use heat shrink butt connectors, like part # DW05743-5, to make the connections. Leaving the connections exposed can definitely...

  • Parts Needed to Connect European 7-Pin to U.S. 4-Way Flat
    There are a few parts you will need, and this will require you cutting off your European 7-pin. First, you'll need a U.S. 4-way, the Hopkins Endurance 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM48110, along with Converter # 118158. If you take a look at the accompanying diagram, you can see exactly how to wire the converter to the 4-way and you will need to do this with Butt Connectors - 22-18 Gauge # DW05743-5 and 16-14 Gauge # DW05744-5.

They are waterproof and corrosion resistant and will mount to all surfaces. These work great with trailers over 80 inches wide. The left side has a built-in license plate light.

    In order to use a third brake light for both brake and running light signals, you would need to use a light with turn, brake, and running light capabilities such as the Thinline LED Trailer Tail Light part # STL59RB. As most trailers are a 3 wire system you would also need to use the Vehicle to Vehicle Tail Light Converter part # 118158 to separate the brake signals from turn the signals.

    I can help you pick out a work light for loading/unloading and help you wire it up to use in a 12-volt outlet. First, I would instead recommend the # TLL48FB Opti-Brite LED Work Light from Optronics instead of the light # TLL50FB you were looking at. This light is much brighter and has a better spread with 1,200 raw lumens of light compared to the 324 raw lumens of light produced by the # TLL50FB.

    You can definitely use the quick splices that are included with the Tekonsha 4-Pole 60" Long Vehicle End # 18002 that you referenced, but butt connectors secured by electrical tape would provide much more of a secure installation on your 2007 Lexus RX 350. I recommend using Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors # DW05743-5 for 22-18 Gauge Wire because they are much more secure and will last longer than standard butt connectors like part # 05730-5.

To further assist I recommend adding dielectric grease # LT37534 to further protect the splice from water and debris.

Or you could simply get a new wishbone 4-way # A20WB, cut off the connector and use butt connectors # DW05743-5 to combine the wiring.
