Deka Wiring - 16-14 Gauge Butt Connectors - DW05744-5 Review


Jeff Hello everybody this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the Deka blue butt connectors for the 16-14 gauge size wire and this is for a quantity of five connectors. Now these blue butt connectors will join two lengths of 16 gauge or 14 gauge sized wire and it will insulate the connection with the heat shrinkable nylon for adjustability and durability. Now the blue color on this will indicate the size wire this connector will fit. This one will fit the 16-14 gauge sized wire. And if you forget what color size fits what, it is also stamped on here.

16-14 AWG. Now to install the two wires, what you'll want to do is take your two wires that you're going to connect together and you'll strip off about a quarter of an inch of insulation on each end of the wire. Take your first wire, stick it into this end right here, and push it all the way until it stops. Basically there's a metal casing right there in the middle and in the very center is a little stopper. So when you push the wire in it'll stop and that should put that in the metal casing.

Once you make sure that the stripped portion is under the metal casing, take your crimper, crimp it all the way down until you make a good connection. And then you'll do the same with the second wire. Take the stripped end, stick it all the way in until it goes no further. Make sure it's under the metal or the stripped portion is under that metal casing. And then use your crimper and crimp that side down.

With both of them crimped, then what you'll wanna do is just tug on them, hold both wires and just tug on them. Make sure you have a good connection. Once that's good then what you'll do is get a heat source, like a heat gun, and then just apply heat over this insulation and it will cause this nylon insulation to shrink and it will completely seal around your connection and prevent the elements from causing a problem with your connection. Now this part is for a quantity of five connectors. We do also sell it as a single connector, its part number DWO5744-1.

Or as a ten pack which is part number DWO5744-10. But that should do it for the review on the Deka blue butt connectors for the 16-14 gauge size wire for a quantity of five..
