Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eight Core Alarm Cable I bought this cable to repair an alarm system at my girlfriends grandads house, The cable is great quality and very cheap compared to buying a 50m roll when you only need 15m for a short run. Not much more to say works great. Pick-up was easy from the Maplin store in Rotherham the staff in the store were quick, friendly and helpful.

Hi, I plan to connect 2 pieces of 6 core alarm cable together. Is there any special connector tool that i would require to do this successfully or can you suggest the ideal way of doing this?
Asked by: Steve
The best way is to solder the two together, although any of our connectors will be fine.
