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 Terminal normally called a Step Down Connector can have many uses, though more commonly seen a connector or terminal working simular to a splice; however, unlike a Butt Connector Terminal, this "splice' is one that makes a connection from a larger wire to a smaller one, or vise-versa.
