Product details

Maplin Snap Lock Automotive Cable Connectors

A very quick and reliable way of connecting additional cables to existing wiring in automotive applications, for example fitting car alarms, radio-cassette units, etc. The cables to be joined are placed inside the snap-lock connector, the cover is pushed home with a pair of pliers and locks shut, thus completing the connection. Suitable for cable up to 3mm diameter and rated at 8A. Made from nylon with tin-pated brass contacts.Supplied in packs of 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are so quick and simple to use , just place wire in the connecter so both end are touching and snap close ,and pinch with a pair of grips no messing about soldering and a large pack for a few pounds , would use again

Could you tell me if your connectors are suitable for marine use. I am rewiring a boat and require suitable fixings that will not rust. Thanks

No sorry this product does not support that.

Do you need to strip the sheathing off the wire before performing the snap lock procedure or does the procedure auto strip the connecting part of the cable.
Asked by: Anonymous
This automatically cuts into the sheathing.

Can these crimps (L71AZ) be used for jointing BT cable cores. If not are there any crimps which can be used to inline joint BT cores?

Unfortunately we don't sell anything specifically suited for this.

Although they are primarily designed for one-cable-in and ne-cable-out would you think they could be suitable for splicing (i.e. 2-cables-in and one cable out)?? Cheers
Asked by: Anonymous
yes you can use them for that
