Product Description

The BD Loops Splice Kit is ready to ship from North Shore Commercial Door. BD Loops Water-Tight Splice Kit is designed to create a water-tight seal over a spliced connection. Used in the field, this kit effectively repairs damaged lead-in wire or allows more wire to be connected to the lead-in. Without the protection against the elements that a water-tight splice kit offers, spliced loops often short to ground.

The Splice Kit is packed with multiple lengths of double walled adhesive shrink tubing, as well as a strip of glue tape that is applied as layers to create a water-tight seal. Making an effective and durable splice in the field has never been easier!

The Splice Kit is designed to prevent common problems associated with splicing in the field, such as corrosion, oxidization, and contact with water. The double walled adhesive shrink tubing creates a tough waterproof seal that is ideal for direct burial use or is run through conduit. The Splice Kit is not to be used with wire thinner than 16 AWG (e.g., 18 or 20AWG).

Splice Kit Includes:

  • One (1) 6", 1/2" Adhesive Lined Shrink Tubing
  • One (1) 4", 1/2" Adhesive Lined Shrink Tubing
  • Two (2) 3/16" Adhesive Lined Shrink Tubing
  • Three (3) Pieces of Glue Tape

What You Need:

  • Soldering Iron
  • Solder
  • Pliers
  • Heat Gun or Blow Torch 
  • Heat guns are preferred, as they are less likely to overheat the wire and shrink tubing)
  • BD Loops lead-in wire or wire that is 16 AWG or thicker

A soldering iron, as well as a heat gun or blow torch, are required to use the Water-Tight Splice Kit. The BD Loops BERNZOMATIC's ST2200-T Micro Torch & Soldering Iron does both! This portable, trigger-start, butane powered micro torch comes with a soldering tip! The BERNZOMATIC ST220-T Micro Torch & Soldering Iron is sold separately, just follow the link below:

Good Reasons to Make a Splice:

  • Add more length to the lead-in
  • Repair damaged lead-in wire

Bad Reasons to Make a Splice:

  • Add more length to the loop itself
  • Repair damaged loop wire in the loop itself

In a situation where the loop is damaged, it is better to install a new preformed loop or wrap a new loop. Splicing should only be done on the lead-in

Splicing Tips & Tricks:

  • In a pinch, a lighter can be used to shrink the shrink tubing
  • Solder all connections
  • Round jagged pieces of solder with needle nose pliers before using shrink tube
  • Tape the wires down - this will free up both hands and make splicing easier
