Video Transcript for Deka Heat Shrink Ring Terminal Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Deka quarter-inch heat shrink ring terminal for 16 to 14 gauge wire. That's going to be part number DW05737-1. Our heat shrink ring terminal is going to keep out all of that moisture and debris that could potentially cause corrosion build-up inside the connector. It's going to be especially useful in applications, like this, where it's going to be on the outside of either a vehicle or a trailer, where it's going to be exposed to the elements. It's also going to come in handy if you have a boat trailer, where it's going to be near a lot of water.Because, unlike traditional style ring terminals, it's going to be sealed at the back. Whereas with the other one, it's going to have an opening and potentially having a opening at the front.

Where we're going to have wires really close to that ring. Where it could, again, get that moisture in there and cause a lot of corrosion. A ring terminal is going to work with 14 to 16 gauge wire. And the ring, itself, is going to be a quarter-inch inner diameter. It's going to be perfect for those ground wires with the self-tapping screw, or any other small terminal that you can fit a quarter-inch ring around.The heat shrink is going to be a nylon.

If you just take some heat and apply it to it, it will shrink right around that wire and give it that extra durable coating, but also still be flexible enough that we can move the wire around and not have to worry about it breaking, or moving it around inside the terminal. We're going to be using our ring terminal for our ground wire coming out of our junction box on our trailer. We already have a hole drilled, so we're just going to measure out about how much wire we're going to need. It doesn't hurt to give yourself a little bit of extra. We'll cut off the excess and we'll strip back the end of the wire.We'll take our ring terminal, slide the bare wire in, and crimp it in place.

Just need to apply some heat, so we can shrink down that connector. We're going to be using a heat gun. That way I don't have to worry about it charring or burning the connector or the wires. We'll taking a self-tapping screw, put it loosely in place, and come back with a nut driver and tighten it up.That will finish up your look at the Deka quarter-inch heat shrink ring terminal, part number DW05737-1.

Deka Ring Terminal - Heat Shrink - 16-14 Gauge - 1/4" Ring ID - Nylon Insulation - Blue - Qty 1 - DW05737-1

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (9 Customer Reviews)

This blue ring terminal fits 16-14 gauge wire and has a 1/4" ring inner diameter. Insulated with heat-shrinkable nylon for adjustability and durability.


Worth the money compared to the cheap hard-plastic versions...especially for marine applications. Suggest to still use shrink tubing on top of the heat shrink on the ring terminal...slide a piece of shrink tubing onto the wire, heat/shrink down the terminal first, then slide down your tubing and shrink on top of everything for a lasting connection.


Order was complete and delivered in a timely manner. Only problem (minor) was the 7way pigtail was not wired to color code. Had to use test light to get 3 of the wires in correct location. Could be a problem if someone wasn't comfortable with ringing out wires.


I ordered multiple items from etrailer and the experience was perfect. The products arrived exactly as described with super fast shipping (standard option). The communication was frequent and thorough. This company knows good customer service. I didn't have any issues, but don't have any worries with this company if any come up.


Got my brakes and hubs on and they are great. Best price I could find and glad these guy are doing such a good job. No parts missing... now that's the ticket. Would recommend them any time.


excellent product ,easy to install




Delivered fast and worked perfectly!

  • How to Create a Better Ground for a Clearance Light on a Trailer
    Since you have already determined that it is a ground issue (which is almost always the problem) I would try sanding down the area you are installing the clearance light on. A good ground will have a solid connection to a clean, bare metal surface. If the screws are loose (as you found) or the metal has some paint or debris on it there could be some issues. If that doesn't work you can also try using a ring terminal like part # DW05737-1 and some 16 Gauge Wire # 16-1-1 to create a better...

  • Troubleshooting Vehicle 4-way Connector Having No Ground When Plugged Into Trailer
    Since the ground issue on the 4-way connector on your vehicle only occurs when the trailer is plugged in, it sounds like the trailer ground is bad. First I would make sure that the main ground to the tongue of the trailer from your new 4-way connector is secure to clean corrosion free metal. Next if your trailer has an aluminum frame or a tilt bed you will likely need to run jumper wires from the mounting hardware of each light to the main ground on the tongue, as these style trailers...

    It appears your lights are obsolete from Wesbar. As I was unable to find your exact lights you might consider the LED Trailer License Plate Light # LPL82CBB. This light is submersible, mounts with studs and the LED lights are very bright. This light uses a 2 wire connection which you can add a Ring Terminal # DW05737-1 to connect the ground to one of the mounting studs so you only need to connect your power wire.

    For your application I recommend picking up the Wesbar Wishbone Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 002402 because it has the 2 brown wires so your installation will be really simple. Just use heat shrink butt connectors like part # DW05743-5 for the standard wires and add a ring terminal like part # DW05737-1 for the ground wire. If you already have a 4-Way connector with just 4 wires then you'll combine the ends of the 2 brown wires and connect them to the running light...

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector with Wiring for a 2007 Sportsman Trailer
    For you I recommend the Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit # e99011. 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 # DW05737-1 and 3 of # DW05740-1. I have also included some links on testing and troubleshooting brake...

    The NOCO Genius Gen3 already has the fuse on each line and they don't have the extensions available for this model. You can extend the wires, but if you alter your wiring, you will void your warranty. You only need to extend the wires and put the ring terminals on either end to give yourself a working solution. I recommend using wiring # 16-1-1, and ring terminals # DW05737-1. You will simply use a bolt and nut to connect the two wires...but make sure the negative and positive wires...

  • How to Ground a Trailer Light
    I was not able to reference the tow smart light kits you are referring to but a trailer taillight will ground one of two ways. They can either ground using a single wire (usually white) or through the mounting hardware. If they ground using a single wire then that wire will need to be attached to a bare metal part of the trailer frame with a screw like part # FA1131822 and a ring terminal like part # DW05737-1. If there is any paint on the ground location then you will need to sand it down...

  • Running Wiring For Bully Light Bar At Back Of 40-Ft Fifth Wheel Trailer
    There are a couple of ways you can run the wires for the Bully Light Bar, part # BLS-1103. The easiest way would be to attach the light bar wiring to the wiring you have at the rear of your fifth wheel trailer. That is if you can access the wiring easy enough either by getting to the wires under your trailer or by removing the lights and getting to the wiring behind them. Another way would be to install a junction box like part # 38656 on your fifth wheel and attach the trailer wiring...

  • Replacement 4-Way Trailer Connector and Ground Wire
    The white wire on a 4-way trailer connector is usually for the ground. The reason your lights are not working is because this connection is severed. If you cannot re-attach the wire using a butt connector like part # DW05744-5 then you can replace the 4-way with part # HM48192. If a new ground wire needs to be ran you can use part # DW02359-1 (per foot), part # DW05737-1, and part # FA1131822. The ring terminal will need to be attached to a bare metal surface free of paint.
