    Insulated crimp on automotive connectors.

    Has anyone else tried these? I find the wire is likely to pull out fairly easily. Is there some trick to getting them to stay attached to the wire?

    Those coloured insulated crimps? they are crap, I never use them.

    Use the proper uninsulated ones, buy the crimper for it. The crimper can be hard to find though but you be glad you bought one.

    I originally got them to use inline inside my console where they could short against the car chassis if they weren't insulated. Bad buy it seems.

    Not quite those. The blade style quick disconnects. the wires keep falling out of them.

    A pic of the relay project I was doing.

    Notice the insulation boot? I dont have a crimped wire on it but the quality is identical to car manufacturer. Not even a pro alarm installer uses them...dunno why though.
