Yes, you could crimp on less expensive connectors designed for automotive use on your boat, but isn't it worth a little extra peace of mind when you're far from shore to know that your electrical connections are built to withstand the extra abuse they'll get on the water? These Ancor Heavy-Duty Butt Connectors are made so you can rely on them to securely connect your vessel's electrical system.
Butt connectors are used to terminate wires safely or to connect one wire to another by inserting each wire into the connector and then crimping it.
Ancor's Heavy-Duty Butt Connectors are made from annealed tinned copper which offers the least electrical resistance for maximum current flow. This high-grade, tin-plated copper also resists corrosion from salt and moisture.
The seamless flared barrel design allows for easy wire insertion and maximum strength when crimped.
