Interested to see what peoples opinions are for the best method for extending wires (eg - joining to a pigtail harness)?

I am just about to wire up an alternator plug harness and it got me thinking...


G'day Anthony.

I use open barrel splices and dual wall heatshrink for this. Extending wires is always going to look a bit messy, there isn't too much you can do about that, but I find splicing and sealing gives great reliability.


Is there a reason you prefer open barrel spices for a 1-to-1 wire extension than say a non-insulated butt connector? [url=http://terminalsupplyco.com/Store/Product.aspx?pc=BS-331]http://terminalsupplyco.com/Store/Product.aspx?pc=BS-331
