QUICK SPLICES 10 SUITCASE CONNECTORS IDC RED 22# 18#
- These Red Quick Splices, for 22 to 18 guage wires, make wiring jobs incredibly easy!
- No wire stripping!
- Commonly called "suitcase connectors", these Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDCs) are invaluable when it is necessary to splice into existing wiring
- Just snap the existing wire into the unblocked opening on one side of one of the connectors. Then insert the new wire to be spliced into the blocked opening on the other side. Use pliers to press down the thin metal tab, which is slotted in such a way as to cut through the wire's insulation, making firm electrical contact with the metal wire itself. Then close the lid, like on a suitcase, and you're done!
This listing is for 10 Red IDCs for 22 to 18 guage wires.
