  • Splitter for Switched Power Wire

    Well, GM was good enough to add a switched power wire to the C5's, but as I splice into it for the 4th time, I'm coming to realize that I need a better connector for the job.

    I'm looking for a connector that can attach to the switched power supply and provide 4+ outlets for a cleaner install of my accessories. That way I can attach some type of "pluggable" tip to all my switched power accessories and have a more clean install vs permanently splicing into the factory wire.

    Recommendations? Any idea where I could find such a unit? (already tried Radio Shack)

      Then we both need to fix this. My switched is a dedicated wire, so I can place a splitter end on it.

          I think what you're looking for is a power distribution block.

          Something kinda like these.

              Consider a terminal strip

              Have you considered using a terminal strip?

              You can get a jumper strip to complete the set:

                I also think they make quick connect type distribution blocks.

                  heh. I just got one almost exactly like today which I glued to a project box that I use to house a few relays to turn on/off my inverter.

                    Hey, thanks for all the help!

                    I purchased the terminal strip pictured, but didn't like it. I wanted something with quick connects and less exposure.

                    A quick connect power distribution block sounds like exactly what I need. I'll do some searching, but tell me if you know of any good ones.
