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. .

Good Product. I am a guy that likes a challenge although this wasen't much of one.. easy instructions, straight forward application and tools this was a fun project. my best advice would be if you're putting together a project of sorts make sure you speak to a rep before you order, that way all the parts you order work well together.. 657134

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

Ask the Experts about this Deka Accessories and Parts

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Why is 10 or 12 Gauge Wire Recommended for Electric Brake Assemblies
  • The reason that 10 Gauge # 10-1-1 or 12 Gauge # 12-1-1 wire is recommended for 10" brake assemblies, like part # AKEBRK-35-SA, is because they pull more power than the lights on your trailer. I believe the green wire you are referring to carries the right turn/stop lighting functions as you can see from the attached photo of a trailer side 4-Way. The 14 and 16 gauge wires are too small for the amount of power needing to get to the brake assemblies and they could potentially get too hot,...

  • Upgrading Lights on 2000 Tracker PT175 Trailer to LED
  • We do offer a wide variety of replacement lights for trailer but since trailer manufacturers don't keep a record of what they use on trailers I would need some pictures of the lights you are wanting to replace along with some measurements so I can be sure to recommend the correct parts.

  • Replacing Factory 4-Way on 2006 Ford F-150 with 4-Way/7-Way Connector
  • Yes! The Hopkins Plug-N-Tow # 40185 is a plug and play solution for replacing the factory 4-Way on your 2006 Ford F-150. To add a 7-Way/4-Way connector you would then need the Hopkins # 37185. This connects directly to the 4-Way and then has additional wires that you can connect to wiring run to the rear of your pickup for it to be fully functional. You can mount the Hopkins connector with part # C57202 to avoid drilling into your trailer hitch. If you want to permanently install...

  • Thank you for all of the helpful information! I do have a few different options for you to add LED lighting to your scooter carrier that resembles the MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier # MT70100. 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. Since your carrier is aluminum you will need to cut off the eyelet on the ground wire and splice it to the white...

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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Most Popular Replacement Clearance/Marker Lights for an Old Travel Trailer
  • The most popular clearance/marker lights we offer are the Optronics Clearance or Side Marker Lights w/ Reflex Reflector. These are offered in both incandescent part # MC38AB for amber or part # MC38RB for red and LED part # MCL31AB for amber or part # MCL31RB for red. They have a two wire design so they are super easy to install. The white wire gets grounded and then the back wire goes to the running light circuit with butt connectors part # DW05744-5.

  • How To Add Tail Lights To a Bike Rack

The white wire on each light as well as the trailer connector will need to be run to a bare metal surface. The black wire for each light can be combined and run to the brown wire on the trailer connector. The red wire for each light can then be run to the yellow...

  • Ways to Convert Trailer to LED Type Lighting

Any of your existing lights can be converted to LED operation by swapping out the incandescent bulbs for LED-type replacement elements. We have LED equivalents that are drop-in replacements for many popular standard bulbs. All appear on the linked page and can be selected by bulb number, such as the popular 194 type bulb # A194B that can...

  • Correct Pigtail for the 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket
  • It sounds like you are looking for the Pigtail Wiring Harness part # PK11998 which will plug directly into the back of the 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket part # HM40975. The Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector part # DW05744-5 and part # DW05745-5 can then be used to make the above connections.

  • Recommended 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector with Pigtail

These have a connector with a loop in the middle that makes disconnecting your trailer wiring from your tow vehicle much easier than a standard 4-Way Flat connector. 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...

  • Parts Needed to Connect European 7-Pin to U.S. 4-Way Flat

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.

  • What is the Best Brake Controller for Towing a Trailer?

  • Is a Breakaway Kit Required on an Old Trailer
  • In order to determine if a breakaway system is required on your trailer you will need to contact your local DMV. This will vary from state to state. However, it is a good ideal to add a breakaway system regardless of your state's regulations as they will help to protect others on the road and your trailer in the event of an accident. Breakaway systems are relatively inexpensive and can easily be installed with minimal effort. I recommend the Hopkins Engager Push-To-Test Trailer Breakaway...

  • The Sealed, 4" Round, LED Stop/Turn/Tail light, 21 Diode - Red # STL55RB will work great on your motorhome. You will simply need to use the wiring pigtail # A47PB for each light. 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.

Other than that everything else is the same. I have attached review videos and photos for you to reference the differences as well.

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.
