How To: Properly Tap Into Wires

This is the proper way to tap into a wire. It works for installing remote starts, halos, keyless entries, etc....I see too many people using quick splices, which are junk. It's called a lineman's knot.

First you strip back some of the wire in the middle of the wire that you're tapping into:


Then poke a test light or pick through the exposed wire:


Then strip back some of the wire that is being used as the tap (off of the halo, remote start, etc..) and put it through the hole you just poked in the original wire:


Then wrap the second wire around the first:


Solder it if possible and then tape it tight:


And then you're all done. It provides a much better and longer lasting connection than quick splices and easily tucks back into factory wire looms.
