Part: Posi-Lock Electrical Connectors
Why You Need This: In order to to an electrical wiring repair job correctly, it requires specialty tools and supplies (wire strippers, soldering iron, heat shrink, proper terminal crimpers, zip ties) and the know how to get the work done. While we know everyone would repair electrical connectors the proper way, time and convenience tends to win in most situations. This is why we are excited to offer Posi-Locks, a high quality (made in USA), reusable wire connectors that install in minutes, without special tools that offer a EZ and semi-permanent solution for electrical repairs.
Posi-Locks come in multiple sizes (color coded for different gauge wires), are vibration proof, and can be taken apart and re-installed multiple times. Of course the cave man that owed your vintage Honda CL350 Scrambler or CB750 street machine before you, fixed that chaffed wire with the cheapest of cheap auto parts store "butt" splices connectors and smashed them in place using a rock as a hammer... Time to evolve and keep handful of Posi-Locks in your tool kit of your CB350, CB360 or CB450 (or for just about any bike).
Sold in bags of 10, and available to work with wire gauge sizes 10 through 24 gauge. Make sure to buy the correct size for the wires you are working with (most wires on the vintage Honda's are 16 gauge).
Watch our video to see how to install the Posi-Locks as well as the other awesome Posi-Products like the fuse holders for glass tube fuses and blade fuses as well as Posi-Tap (wire tap) that allow a wire splice just as quick and easy as the locks. We have been using these on our bikes for thousands of miles and only have great things to say about them.

Installation Tip: Strip about 1/4" (6 mm) of insulation off each end of the wire, insert the threaded caps over the ends of the wire and slightly fan out the loose strands of wire. Do not twist the ends of the wire prior to installing them in the threaded cap. Install the cap and wire into the body of the lock and begin to thread the cap in place, while keeping pressure on the wire while tightening the cap to the body. Once snug, give the wire a gentle tug to see if it has locked properly, it should not move or pull out. If it does try again, you may need to strip just a hair more of insulation off the wire. The wires of the Honda wiring harnesses are 16 gauge, while the blue Posi-locks are the rated size we find using the Red Posi-Locks for single wire repairs works as well.
