Quick slide connectors, also known as T-taps, are used to easily tap an electrical circuit into an existing wire. The connector uses insulation displacement technology - metal tines inside the quick slide connector will slice through the existing wire's insulation when closed making a connection to the wire that can be accessed using a standard insulated male 0.250 push-on terminal. The connection can be disconnected and re-connected as needed. Rated to 300 volts, the connector body is made from high quality vinyl. Quick slide connectors can be used with wire sizes ranging from 22 awg to 10 awg. These connectors are manufactured in the U.S.A.
