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

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (80 Customer Reviews)

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

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.


Comments
Easy assembly of all parts, trailer rides like new.

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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Dimensions and Wiring Identification For Rotary Dimmer Switch # 37215235
    The Rotary Dimmer Switch # 37215235 is 3-9/16" tall, and 2-3/16" wide. The cutout section is 2-9/16" tall and 1-3/4" wide. The red wire is for connecting to your 12 volt positive power source while the white wire leads to the positive terminal on the light fixture. The ground wire will connect straight to the battery or other 12 volt ground source. When replacing your switch you will be able to tie your negative wires together at the switch to complete this circuit. Be sure to use a connector...

  • Recommended Butt Connector for Installing Tekonsha # 18002 on a 2007 Lexus RX 350
    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.

  • Brake/Hazard Lights on 1996 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup Do Not Work After Brake Controller Install
    This is an unusual issue that seems to be related to the installation method rather than the brake controller. My technical contact at Tekonsha advised that he has seen it happen when quick-splice connectors are used (rather than the more secure butt connectors) that these quick-splice fasteners go all the way through the wire itself, severing it, rather than just cutting through the insulation layer. It could be that your installer may have used these connectors and when clamping them...

    You are exactly right, the only difference between the Upgraded Modulite, # 119190, and Modulite # 119147, is the compatibility with ST, STT, and PWM systems. Since your 2006 Chrysler Pacifica does not use these advanced circuit systems, you are better off going with the more cost effective modulite, # 119147.

With any trailer lights, even submersible lights, I recommend unplugging your trailer connector before putting them underwater.

  • Recommended Butt Connectors to Use with Wesbar 4-Flat Connector # W002230
    The Wesbar 4-Flat Connector Wishbone Style # W002230 referenced in your question features 18 gauge wire (and 16 gauge for the ground wire). With this in mind the Deka Butt Connectors # 05730-5 that you also mentioned will work great, as it is designed for 22 to 18 gauge wire. It includes 5 connectors. For a more secure and durable connection you might also consider heat shrink butt connectors like # DW05743-5 instead. These will also work with the Wesbar harness and includes 5 connectors.

  • Finding the Brake Signal Wire During Installation of the Curt Spectrum on my 2020 Hyndai Santa Fe
    To get that Curt Spectrum part # C51170 installed your best bet is to use a test light like the Circuit Tester part # PTW2992 to determine which wire has power when the brake pedal is pushed. With such thin wires I recommend using a straight pin into the plug area where the wires go so you do not damage the thin wiring. Once it is determined this you can use the Heat Shrink Connector part # DW05743-5 to make your splice.
