I had a project that needed some inline connectors and opted for Lighting Shrink's version. I was very pleased with the weather tight seal and the ease of use. The ratchet they offer will snug down on the crimp and actually work as another hand as you load the wire. This is very handy when working in awkward situations. I was able to move rather quickly through the connection process and the finished product was a clean, confident termination. I have used few inline type connectors and I will definitely use these again. Just sharing my personal experience with Jeremy and Lighting Shrink.
