Time saver: Solder Shrink Sleeves

Recommended Posts

I bought a bunch of these from Holiday Coro. Basically it is heat shrink with solder built in saving a step when soldering on pigtails, connecting strings, etc.

They appear to work pretty good. I still plan to put another layer of Waytek heat shrink on the outside (just like Alan taught me to do).

John, you really want to use a small butane torch or even a lighter. A torch will finish that connection in about 3 seconds. It took you about 2 minutes with the heat gun. Good video though. I have used these connections before, but if you have a lot to do, it can be very pricey compared to solder and heat shrink tube.

Thanks for the quick video JSTORM. Loved the HULK roar near the end as you try to break it. lol

I ordered 400 of these during the sale and have yet to try them out. I was surprised by how tiny they are.

If you overheat it... does the red waterproof seal get ruined?
