NEW PRODUCTS – Cold Splice Wire Tap (UB), 2-Wire Splice (UY) and 3-Wire Splice (UB) 10 Packs – Kiss those days of heat-shrink, melted jacketing and clumsily-arranged third-hand tools goodbye! Go ‘cold splice’ with these snap-able plastic splices for fast connections. Use with any 19-26 AWG solid core wire and slip them into the plastic splice so that they slide into the metal teeth. Then squeeze down with parallel-jaw or slip joint pliers – don’t use needle-noses, they have too much angle and not enough force. We also like using our panavise to squeeze them down.

Connect 19-26 AWG solid-core wires by sliding them in and then squeezing all at once. It’s an easy way to tap into an existing wire or connect multiple wires without soldering and is more compact than the three-way splice.

The splices contain a little silicone jelly to keep the cold splice from oxidizing so they are a bit weatherproof. They are not waterproof.

Comes in a pack of 10 pieces! They’re handy so keep some around in your drawer.

  1. Scotchloks! I used these a couple of decades ago when I worked summers for the phone company! They called them jelly beans, and I was very sad when stopped finding them in my pockets and at the bottom of my tool pouch years after my last stint there ..
