Non-Insulated Terminals are something of an oddity in the world these days, though not because of their lack of insulation, but more in their difficulty of use. Many would complain about the "crimp" of the terminal never seems to work correctly; this is because they actually have a special crimper (Ratchet Crimper) or are designed to be soldered onto the wire itself, ensuring a very solid connection. Though you will hear of some that can work these connectors with just a normal pair pliers. The choice however, is always up to you. As an added note: some after using these terminals, like the option of covering them with heatshirnk; making colors mean your own thing, and customizing your installation even further.
- Example of use:
The Hook Terminal Connectors are much like the Spade type terminals, in that they were designed for quick connection with a screw or bolt/nut combination. While the Spade terminal connectors resemble a "Y", the Hook terminals resemble as their name implies, a hook. These terminals are more preferred then the standard spade terminal for some applications, due to some complain that the spade terminals can be pulled out easily if the screw holding them becomes loose, while the hook design of the hook terminal connectors makes it more difficult to "pop" off their mounting hardware.
