Please note! This set will only work with THG heat tape.

 

We will be happy to connect your heat tape for you, just be sure to select the connection option.

 

For installing this set we recommend a set of Crimping Pliers for a positive, strong electrical connection.

 

This wire/eyelet/insulator set includes a 6' power cord with the new THG eyelets installed and insulators (2 pcs).  This set will make a power connection to one piece of heat tape. 

 

Ink Marks

First- you will want to mark your heat tape ends. Make a small mark about 1/4" in from the end on the center of each copper strip.

Hole Puncher

Next- Using a hole puncher (regular school model is fine) punch a hole centered on each of your marks.

Insert Eyelet

Next- Carefully insert the flat eyelet in between the laminate layers. This sometimes takes a little patience!

Insert Rivet

Next- Line up the eyelet with the hole and insert the taller half of the rivet through the hole.

Rivet Top

Next- put the shorter half of the rivet on the protruding tall half.

Crimping Rivet

Now you will need to smush the rivet completely.

This is best done with the crimping pliers designed for this. You know you have a good connection when you hold the heat tape at the connection and the eyelet can not pivot on the rivet.

There should be no movement. If there is then you will need to crimp the rivet again.

Apply Insulation Tape

Now you will need to sandwich the connection between the two pieces of heavy insulating tape provided.

 

Tape Sandwich

Repeat this on both rivet connections.

Fold electrical tape over the copper buss-bar on the non-connected end and you are done!
