At Kankakee we’re playing a clean up inning! We have the grand slam of displays here where you can see our Ideal Starting Line Up, Learn all about what Leviton has on deck, walk on over to see the Keystone Lighting…..
Splicing large wire has been a challenge since it was invented.
First there was the split bolt. This device requires you to strip the wire, scratch brush it, put anti oxide on it, tighten it with 2 wrenches, and wrap it with 2 rolls of rubber tape then 3 rolls of electrical tape. It looks awesome (NOT), and takes a lot of time and space in a box.
Then came the compression splice. Strip the wire, stick it in both ends of the splice, crimp it down and then heat shrink. Problem is, a lot of folks don’t own a crimper so they go old school with a hammer or a rock to smash it!
Now there is a quick and easy way to splice. The Burndy Unitap!
This is so cool!!! Strip the wire, insert into the Unitap and tighten down the set screws and you’re done. No tape, no heat shrink and it is a nice looking splice.
