i belive the wire u want to splice into goes into one end and the wire u want to splace goes into the other and u close the top of the thing and its crimps them together with a part of metal inside the top?

yes the metal punctures the wire, and creates a connection as well as holds the 2 wires in place. and the plastic insulates it all

Alright the whole that is farthest away from the lid connection point is the hole that goes over an existing wire. The other hole does not allow any wires to completly pass through, it has a wall that stops it just at the right point. Then the metal clip gets pushed down and splices through the insulation and makes contact with the copper wires inside. Thus giving the splicing effect. This if done correctly should have little to none affects on the existing wire.

You gotta push the metal thing down with pliers,,, and then just snap the plastic over it.

Personally, I've had bad experience with them coming loose or creating a weak / bad connection over time in more than one vehicle. If you plan to leave the splice in the car for a while, I would just take the extra 5 seconds to splice it with a butt connector and some heat-shrink. I no longer use those "vampire taps" or quick-splice connectors any more.

Just my .02... they may work for some, just not worth it to me.

Those things are horrible, they do not hold up being used outside of an automobile, we have people bring cars into our class with electrical problems, 99% of the time when those are used, those are the problem. They suck, don't use them.

i tested out sum stuff with them ;ast night, and they are actually pretty good, it digs into the wire but not cutting it all the way and then if u use a ppair of pliers to fully close it (still not cutting all the way through) and elkectrical tape it, it actually makes a pretty damn solid connection, i guess u need to be careful what size wires u use

They'll last & work for a while... sometime down the road in time is when they typically screw up. Just keep in mind that those things are known to cause issues if you ever have any weird little electrical issues in the future. It may make your search for the problem much easier.
