Lightbulb How to: Wire your heat tape.

*****ATTENTION - Heat tape is not approved for use in Canada, I will not be held responsible for anything resulting in the use of any information provided in this thread. ****** Read / Use at your own risk!!

Here is one way to wire your heat tape using the flexwatt or mylar clip sets.

First take the metal connector provided and fold it over the end of the end of the heat tape where the metal is and use a pair or plyers to crimp it on really good so the plastic is broken and the metal is touching the metal on both sides.

Strip the plastic off a half inch on the ends of your cord set.

As you can see in this picture, fold the stripped end of the wire over and insert it into the loop on the metal connectors so that it is in there snug and wont just fall out.

Put the plastic covers on over the connectors once everything is done and use electrical tape and tape the end of the plastic so that the wire wont move and fall out and just to be safe

When you are finished you should have something that looks like this

I am not resposible for anyone or anything that may happen as a result of following these instructions for connecting your tape.. this is just how i do it and i havent had any problems thus far. So use this guide at your own discretion and always remember to be responsible. is offline
