Deka Wiring - 12-10 Gauge Butt Connectors - DW05745-10 Review


Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we take a look at the Deka yellow butt connectors for the 12 to 10 gauge size wire. And this is for a quantity of 10 connectors. Now these yellow butt connectors will join two lengths of 12 gauge or 10 gauge size wire and they'll insulate the connection with this heat shrinkable nylon for adjustability and durability. The yellow color will indicate the size wire that this connector will fit which is the 12 to 10 gauge size. And if you're not sure or remember which color fits what it is also stamped on the connector itself 12 dash 10 AWG.

Now to install these connector it's pretty simple. All you have to do is take the two wires you're wanting to connect. And at the end of it, strip off about a quarter of vincent quarter inch of the insulation, so you have a bare wire on each end and then you'll take the first wire and you'll stick it all the way into this side and push it until it goes as far as it will right in there's this metal casing in the center here, right in the middle there's a stopper. So when you put your wire in, it'll stop automatically. So just push it in all the way make sure your strip portion is under that metal casing and then take your crimper and just push down on that to crimp that wire to that side.

And then you'll do the same with the second wire. Take the strip den slide it all the way into it'll go no further make sure it's under the metal casing, crimp that end. And then once they're both crimp what you probably want to do is pull on the wires to make sure you got a good connection. Once that's good, then what you'll do is take a heat source, like a heat gun and then just apply heat up and down along this nylon here and it'll shrink over the insulation to completely seal around the connection and it prevents the elements from getting into that connection to cause a problem. Once that's all done, you're all set.

It's all ready to go. Now this part is for a quantity of 10 connectors. We do also sell it in a single pack which is part number DW Oh five seven four five dash one. And we also sell it in a five pack which is part number DW Oh five seven four five dash five but that should do it for the review on the Deka yellow butt connectors for the 12 to 10 gauge size wire for a quantity of 10..
