The first step is to make sure you have correctly stripped the wires to the proper length. If you look inside the butt splice you will see an indentation. Make sure your wires butt up against that. Insert the wire until making sure the insulation touches the butt splice to reduce the risk of a weaker connection. The splice is now crimped with the proper tool. This crimp bends the connector around the wire creating a solid connection. Repeat the process on the other side and perform the tug test to make sure the wires dont pull out. And now you've created a durable connection. Butt splices are useful for their rapid installation and durability. Other methods of connection may not offer the same level of protection.

Nylon Butt splices are a simple way to create long-term electrical connections. The nylon insulation adds a layer of protection that you don't get with non-insulated butt splices. The nylon extends past the metal which serves to hold the wire more stable. This helps to reduce strain and stress on the wire and the connection.
How do you use nylon butt splices? Well, the first thing to do is make sure your wires are cut and stripped to the proper length. If you look inside the butt splice itself, you will see that there is an indentation. Insert the wire into the butt splice. Make sure it butts up to the indentation. Now, simply crimp the splice using the proper tool. This ensures the correct amount of pressure which guarantees a solid connection. Simply repeat the process on the other side. Now you're done. We would strongly recommend performing a tug test on the new splice. Simply grab both wires coming out of the butt splice and gently tug on them two or three times.
