Cheap and Very Effective

Crutchfield customer from Castlewood, VA on 4/23/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've used these for over ten years and recently when my old stereo died (that I wired up with these nine years ago) when I took the old stereo out of the dash and the old wiring harness everything was still crimped nice and tight after nine long years of use.

Pros: Affordable, Easy to Use, Very Durable, 100 in a pack!

Cons: None

Feather in my Crimp hat

Luke from Milwaukee, WI on 7/16/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I threw these in my cart as an impulse item with my recent upgrade from factory stereo to aftermarket headunit, and OMG! I will never do another install or repair without them. Strip your wires (about 3/8") twist them together, slide one of these puppies on, crimp it, & move on to the next one. Perfect every time, and the bees knees for 12 V stereo stuff. So much better than wire nuts, or trying to solder and heatshrink or (heaven forbid) *tape* things together in a car. These make a great electrical connection AND a solid mechanical connection in one step. I'm converted.

Pros: Quick & easy solid mechanical connection won't vibrate loose

Cons: Single use

Quick and Easy!

Dan from TX on 7/9/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Quick and easy answer to light gauge wire connection. The metal inner-liner of the crimp cap is rather soft and forms a fairly solid crimp with little physical effort on the crimper tool. Though I tested every connection, I did not find a single one that was loose or questionable. These will be my go-to solution to crimps on lightweight, low voltage wire in the future.

Great Quality

Patrick from Houston, TX on 12/29/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These crimp caps are great, they are soft and malleable, not brittle like cheaper ones. They crimp easily without shearing, and hold the wires better than other cheaper crimps. Use with a good set of crimpers for best results.

Pros: strong, flexible, high quality, easy to use.

Cons: Might take up more space than a straight crimp or a soldered connection.

Chris from Utah on 11/8/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Standard crimp Caps. Be sure to have a real crimping tool in order for these to be fully effective. These are better than Butt Connectors because the continuity is via wire to wire since you would twist the bare wires together, instead of relying on the connection through the connect like a butt connector. This as best in quality before you would solder and heat shrink.

Pros: Great connectors

Cons: Shipping sucks if this is what you are buying, better to get them elsewhere with free shipping.

These crimp caps provide excellent utility, so they are great to have around. They are easy to work with. I have a Channel-Lock crimper which seems to be absolutely perfect for these things. Your milage may vary with a thin or cheap crimper, as you may damage the insulation.

Pros: Tons of product for the price. Solid and consistent production quality.

Metra Crimp Caps make wiring easy

Vince from SF Bay Area on 1/19/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The Metra Crimp Caps make the stereo install much easier. I used to twist, tape, wrap. Now I do a little twist and crimp, check for tightness and I'm good. Connected 8 wires for all four front, rear pos and neg wires, power, switch, and ground so at least 11 wires while watching the news in less than 15minutes. Most of the time was spent confirming head unit wire with my 2000 MBZ C-class harness.

Pros: very easy to use.

Cons: None.

Size is Advertised Incorrectly

KR from Evanston, IL on 3/5/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

According to the description on Crutchfield, "Package contains 100 crimp caps - for 14- to 20-gauge wire." On the packaging I received, 14-16ga wire was specified. Assuming I wasn't shipped the wrong product, the description on the site was wrong ... these definitely won't work on 18ga wire, let alone 20. Even 16 seemed a little loose to me.

Pros:

Cons:

We reviewed the product, saw that this customer was correct, and updated our website. We also sent her some connectors that will work with the smaller wire sizes. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Paid this price at Crutchfield delivered. Closest competitor was $5.85 delivered. Product is exactly what you would expect. No problems. Crimp caps with insulating outer jacket. Bought these because I had intermittent disconnect in one of my wiring connections. These little crimp caps kept the wires from getting loose. The Crutchfield packaging was overkill for mailing these things, and they arrived in pristine condition. You won't be disappointed unless you're actually going to solder. I like these better than barrel crimps.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I went ahead and purchased these caps but after much searching on the internet that said solder and shrink wrap was better I decided not to use the crimp caps and to solder and shrink wrap. Probably would have been OK with crimp caps. And would have been much faster and easier.

Pros: I think it would have been easier and faster than solder.

Cons: Bulky connection and not as secure as opposed to solder.

A must have in your wiring "tool set"

Jared G from Birmingham, AL on 1/24/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I ordered these on a whim.. but, I have to say they are more than useful. They are QUICK,.. and you can throw 1, 2, 3, or more wires in these twisted, and crimp and not have to worry about them. They really speed up installation.

Pros: Can be used to simply crimp a single wire that isn't being used anymore to keep it from interfering.. to joining 2-3+ wires together in a nice strong crimp. Cheap, and has a million uses in wiring! Everyone needs a bag of these.

Cons: None.. I ordered on a whim, didn't think I'd really use them.. but I keep going to them due to ease of use and quality of the crimp.

Just get these first, don't waste your time with anything else like I

Bridget from Deming, NM on 12/21/2013

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

EASY and Secure. First time for me to install new Car Stereo, (no choice, no one local here to do it). These were so much easier after I struggled with Butt connectors (from local hardware store) with no success. Price was better than local hardware store, which only had limited inventory in small quantity packages. I have a lot left, but having "enough" to work with gave me peace of mind and plenty of extras to use until I got the hang of it.

Pros: Easy to Use! Secure

Cons: None

Matt.C. from Vancouver, WA on 12/19/2013

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

How did I ever install a car stereo--or any car electronics without these? Well, by fumbling around wasting a whole bunch of time with a soldering iron and electrical tape, that's how. Super-dee-dooper time saver when connecting wires--worth every penny (and so much more because they are so cheap!)

Pros: Time saved Time saved Time saved Very little money spent

Cons: None. None at all.

I used these crimp caps to install a stereo into my friend's car and it couldn't have been easier. I normally solder and heat shrink the wires, but decided to try these instead and it easily took less than a 1/4 of the time. As long as you have a decent crimping tool you should have no problems.

Since you only make one crimp to join two wires together, these are twice as fast as conventional butt connectors. Good quality also.

A
Because I used the normal butt connectors last time, and because today's wires are so much thinner than they were 20 years ago, I thought it would be better to try these. Sometimes the wires would be cut off or fall out of the butt connectors. I think these would give the crimp something more to hold onto. Was going to order them elsewhere, for a little less, but sales tax made them almost the same price, and figured I'd rather give Crutchfield the business for going above and beyond !

Hi, I just got these connector but I have no idea how to use them to connect two wires. Do I need other tools to do with them? Please help me.
[ Ken Wu  Dec 12, 2013 ]

Just twist your wires together...place cap over end so it covers your connection...and "crimp" with pliers or vice grips where the narrow endd is...on the metal...this will keep your connection covered from contacting other wires or metal..good luck!!!
[ TODD  Dec 13, 2013 ]
A
I used a wire crimper. You can also use a different tools as long as you crimped/pressed the butt of the connector, you need to twist/insert the wires inside the connector then press as hard as you can the butt of the connector. Hope this help.
[ JONALD  Dec 13, 2013 ]
A
You twist the two wires together and insert them into the cap. Then crimp the outside of the cap. You can use a crimping tool or cheap out and use pliers like I did.
[ MICHAEL H  Dec 13, 2013 ]
A
1. Twist together the wires you plan to connect. 2. Insert the twisted wires into the crimp cap 3. With an electrical crimper or even vise-grips squeeze the cap so the wires will not come loose 4. Once complete I recommend zip tieing together the bunch of wires to keep them organized.
[ DILLON  Dec 13, 2013 ]
A
You need to twist the wires together insert them into the cap and crimp the cap with wire crimpers. They are available at just about any auto part stores in the electrical section, they might be available at walmart too... So, yes you need other tools to complete the job.
[ DAVID  Dec 13, 2013 ]
A
Twist your wires together. Insert them into the cap. Crimp the metal portion of the cap. Done.
[ STEPHEN  Dec 13, 2013 ]
A
Yes u need a crimper for these connectors. Just strip about 1/4 inch of the wires, twist them together, then put the cap over the wire (making sure the stripped wire is in line with metal center) & crimp the metal center of cap.
