 Splicing wires using wire connectors.

 

Wires are joined, or splice, with wire connectors or compression sleeves. Wire connectors come in

about four sizes to accommodate various wire combinations. Each manufacture has its own color

code to distinguish the sizes. Some jurisdictions require the use of compression sleeves for grounding

wires because they provide a more permanent bond than wire nuts. Never use electrician’s tape in

place of a wire nut or compression sleeve. Tape is useful for emergency repairs, but it is not a

substitute for a good mechanical splice.

 

 

 

 

How to splice wires using wire connectors

 

1. First, strip off about 1 inch of insulation from the ends of the wires you are joining. Twist the

stripped ends together clockwise at least three turns.

 

 

2. Screw the wire connectors on clockwise until it is tight and no bare wire is exposed. Test the splice

by tugging on the wires.

 

 

 

 

 

3. To put on a compression sleeve, first twist the wire ends three turns. Snip the ends even. Then slip

a compression sleeve onto the wire ends, and crimp the sleeve a multipurpose tool.
