I was told there is an easy way to splice into wires. They're called scotch clips, anyone heard of them or used them?

And also, I have a lot of extra wire left from my fused wire inside my car. Just cut it enough to go to my switch, and than splice off of that section for other switches? Thanks again.

I like the clips better because I can just squeeze 'em with my fingers and I know with 100% certainty that they're safe and have a good connection...
Simple, clean, quick, and a whole lot cheaper than posilock stuff..

Yeah, just used my first one tonight for splicing to another switch from my 12v wire. They're awesome. Takes 5 seconds at the most, and seal them with electrical tape just to hold down the clamp. 10/10!

I've got them to work for 16 gauge, ran off my 12v wire. Works just fine.
