Deka Wiring - 12-10 Gauge Butt Connector - DW05745-1 Review


Jeff Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this Deka yellow butt connector for 12 to 10 gauge size wire. It is for a quantity of one connector. Now this yellow butt connector will join two lengths or 12 gauge or 10 gauge size wire. It insulates the connection with this heat shrinkable nylon for adjustability and durability.

And the yellow color will indicate the size wire this connector will fit. The 12 to 10 to gauge size. Also if you look closely on it, it is also stamped on there, 12 to 10 gauge AWG. Which is telling me the wire size this is designed for. Now to install your wire, what you'll do is strip off about a 1/4 of an inch of insulation on the end of each wire that you're wanting to connect.

Insert one end of the stripped wire in to there. Until it goes all the way and it won't go any further. Basically in the very middle they have a blocking thing that when you push your wire in there it'll stop the wire. That means you're fully inside this metal casing. Once it's in that metal casing then you'll just take a crimper and crimp down on that side.

And it'll crimp the wire to make your connection. And then you'll do the same with the second wire. You'll strip a 1/4 of an inch off it. Stick it all the way in til goes no further. Crimp that side down.

And then once you have them both crimped, what you might wanna do is tug on the wire to make sure you got a good connection. Then what you'll do is you get a heat source like a heat gun and then apply heat over the whole insulation. And that'll cause this heat shrink insulation to completely shrink and seal around that connection. And it prevents the elements from causing a problem with your connection. Now this is for a quantity of one connector. We do also sell these available in a 5 pack. Which is part number D-W-0-5-7-4-5-5. And a 10 pack which is part number D-W-0-5-7-4-5-10. But that should do it for the review on this Deka yellow butt connector for the 12 to 10 gauge size wire..
