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. .

I have found that the 16-14 Gauge Deka Heat aren't quite as good as their larger 12-10 Gauge counterparts. They still work very well, but the heat shrink shielding is a bit thinner and seems to split easier when making a crimp, and had experiences where the connecter wouldn't grab a 16-gauge wire on the first try. All total I've had an approximate 20% failure rate with this gauge connecter which I feel is a bit high considering their price point. I will use them again in wet use applications, but would like to see some improvements. 421381

No additional failures once installed after one year.

Great, brand name products and some hard to find LED side marker lights. Refurbished an old EZ Loader boat trailer for carrying kayaks. Old incandescent lights were rotted off of the frame and the side marker lights in the fiberglass fenders were inside rubber grommets that were dry rotted. Etrailer had all the replacement lights, available in LED, and beat the price of any other option. Quality products. Delivered in 2 days under a free shipping promo. Etrailer is saved to my favorites for any trailer needs. Pic of the Yak project attached. New tail, fender and side marker LEDs! 472057

Order arrived very quickly. Placed on Friday, arrived on Tuesday from Mo to Pa. Items were packed well and arrived in good condition. Upon initial inspection all items appear of good quality. Ordered tires, brakes with backing plates, hubs ,seals and grease. Haven't installed any items yet, but I am sure I will have no issues. Free shipping is a plus. Additionally unlike other free shipping offers that are out on the back burner for a week, order was processed and shipped promptly. I have recommended etrailer to friends and would highly recommend them to anyone. 373544

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • How Can I Install Trailer Identification Lights With Little Clearance
  • The 3 LED Identification Light Kit for Trailers # MCL22RK3B have a 3 wire connection. This is because they are intended to be used as running lights and to light up brighter as brake lights. Because trailers use combined wiring, meaning the brake and turn signals are on the same circuit, if the wires are connected as brake lights, they will work as turns signals as well. Avoiding this is when you would need the Curt Vehicle to Vehicle Tail Light Converter # C56196. Another option,...

  • 7-Way Wiring Harness for 2015 Ford F-150
  • There is a simple solution for you, but there is no trick to getting the wires of the # 118283 back out since the wires are different gauges due to the brown wire being for the right turn/stop functions and the blue wire being for the trailer brakes. What you can do is cut off the 7-way on the # 118283 and replace it with 7-way connector # HM47210 that has a pigtail; you'll only need butt connectors # DW05745-5 and # DW05744-5 to connect your splices.

  • Yes, the Optronics GloLight LED Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn, Backup - Submersible - 24 Diodes - Weathertight, # STL201RFMB, uses two weathertight harnesses. The 3-Wire Pigtail for Optronics Trailer Lights - Weathertight Plug - 10" Lead, # A45PMB, will give you the running light, stop light, and turn signal funtions. The 2-Wire Pigtail for Optronics Lights - Weathertight Plug - 10" Lead, # A42PMB, will give you the backup light funtion. To connect these harnesses, I suggest...

  • Can Cargo Carrier be Folded up if it Blocks License Plate
  • Any cargo carrier when folded up might block your license plate and no matter what state you live in a rear license plate is going to need to be visible. If you are not carrying cargo with the etrailer.com Cargo Carrier # E98872 and want to fold it to save some space the best thing to do with this carrier is simply fold the edges up, like you see in the accompanying photo. The other great thing about this carrier is that it folds up completely so if you aren't using it to carry cargo...

  • Availability of 5-Pin Flat Connector That Retains Separate Stop and Turn Signals for 2016 VW Golf
  • Since pretty much every trailer has the stop signal integrated with the left and right turn signals it has just become the standard wiring configuration and that is why it can be difficult to find something. Despite this, we actually do have the solution you are looking for. Tekonsha has their Modulite Protector 5-Way Flat w/ Integrated Circuit and Overload Protection # 119177 which will work in the same manner as the wiring kits that you see are a fit for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf....

You can definitely use the Optronics Streamline LED Trailer Tail Light # STL79RB with wiring like the Hopkins Endurance # HM38134 by just using heat shrink butt connectors # DW05744-5.

  • Replacing the Jensen Stero JCD3007 with a Jensen Stero JWM10A
  • The Jensen RV Stero part # JWM10A that you referenced requires around a 11" wide x 3" tall cutout which is fairly standard for single din stereos so there should not be much issue here. In regards to wiring, you will need to remove the pigtail you have used to install the Jensen RV Stero JCD3007 and replace this with the one that comes with the above using butt connectors part # DW05744-10 and part # DW05744-5.

One of the black wires will be used to illuminate the light when the door opens and the other black wire will be used as your map light which is operated with the included on/off switch.

You will simply need the butt connectors # DW05744-5. On some vehicles, when switching to LED lights, there is a load resistor needed to prevent hyperflashing but this is not always needed.

  • Recommendation for Wiring to Allow Backing Up With Electric Lockout Solenoid on Surge Brake Trailer
  • For your electric lockout solenoid on your trailer, I don't recommend using the parking lights as your signal. Although this works for daytime without issue, at night you will lose all of your trailer braking. Instead, I recommend you use the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors # DW05744-5 and the Hopkins Endurance 5-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Kit - Vehicle and Trailer Ends # HM47890. This will give you a clean connection between your trailer and vehicle and allow you to properly connect...

This will allow you to send the reverse signal to your trailer in addition to the basic trailer functions.

  • A relocated license plate bracket light will work with the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118605 you reference. You will simply splice into the brown running light wire after the converter box to get that running light signal. You most likely will need to ground the light to the bracket if it is metal or to the frame of your vehicle. I recommend using heat shrink butt connector like # DW05744-5 for that connection and weather seal.

We have LED equivalents that are drop-in replacements for many popular standard bulbs.

This will make connections and trouble shooting easy as well as gives you the weather protection of having a wiring box versus heat shrink butt connectors. If you prefer...

  • Mounting Bracket and Wire for a Optronics Clearance Light # AL90AS
  • For a mounting bracket you will need the Optronics Bracket for A91 Series Lights # A91OB. This bracket is confirmed by Optronics to fit on the back of your AL90AS light. This bracket comes with a gasket which creates a weather-tight seal. For a wire, I recommend the Right Angle 2-Wire Pigtail for Optronics Lights # A49PB. This Wire is convenient as the right angle allows the wires to run down from the light instead of straight out the back. The red wire splices right into your trailer...

  • Can Electric Brakes be Used on a Boat Trailer
  • Modern electric brakes such as those that come with Dexter axle # 8327812-EB can be used on boat trailers. However, I strongly recommend that before submerging the trailer in the water disconnect the trailer's electrical plug from the tow vehicle. No need to take any chances; safety first! If there was a problem caused by the water it would more than likely be the result of exposed wiring somewhere and not the electromagnets themselves. It is recommended to use heat shrink tubing or...

For a replacement trailer-side 4-pole connector only that you can splice to your existing wiring you can use the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Fix Replacement 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM48192. If you prefer a connector with wiring we have many...

The wiring is also labeled which helps with the installation. This comes in a 12" version as part # HM48114 and a 48" version as part # HM38134. We also have the 12" part # HM48138 which has an integrated LED tester. I recommend using 16 Gauge Butt Connectors...

If your turn signal is causing the RF to act up then you will want to do some tests to see where the wiring problem is. Check to make sure that the ground on both your tow vehicle and your trailer...

  • If your truck has a combined lighting system where the stop signal is run on the same wires as the left and right turn signals then you can simply use the Vehicle to Vehicle Tail Light Converter # C56196. This converter separates the stop signal from the turn signals and will allow you to wire your 3rd brake light so that it will not blink when your turn signal is activated.
