Red Scotchlok Connectors
Quicksplice wiring connectors can be used to tap into an existing wire feed or parallel splice two cables together.
These connectors are quick and easy to use; no need to strip wires - the connector does this for you! Just a set of pliers and the job is done.
Quicksplice wiring connectors are also known as Scotchlok, Scotchlock, Scotchlocks, Snap Lock, Splice Connectors, Self Stripping Connectors.

Guides and Methods:
The method of adding a tap wire to existing wiring:-
Install through run wire:- Use slot in scotchlok to insert through run wire.
Install tap wire end :- Insert Tap wire end into Tap Hole (Closest to the snap cover hinge)
Push tap wire end into the hole as far as possible, up against the plastic end guide.
Carefully hold both wires in place, squeeze down the metal insert with pliers and snap the cover closed.
The Method of Parallel Splicing:-
Use the method described above, except that you will need to push through plastic end guide on the hole closest to the hinge cover.
This now makes the clear hole for cable to run through.
