Reliable Electric Wire Joint Without Soldering

The most reliable joint that I have used for a long time. This technique consist of knot for strings and then bend-based twist. It's better to solder electric wires, of course, but sometimes it's not possible or inadvisable. So, let's connect stripped wire ends with our hands only.

Step 1: The Video of the Process

Step 2: Tutorial by Pictures

There is a step-by-step comic strip, what to do. 12 steps:

  1. Use any wire stripper to get off 5.5 cm of isolation. For both ends.
  2. The last piece of isolation use to spin cores to get more convenient solid core.
  3. 5.5 cm.
  4. Loop one wire and pass another through it.
  5. Pass the second core further from behind the loop and thread then into the loop.
  6. Tighten up the knot drawing all 4 cores.
  7. The result.
  8. Now we have extremely rupture strength of connection.
  9. But there is a problem: not fixed connection when contract wires.
  10. Well, bend the tails backwards. It clamps the loops.
  11. Then rotate the tails around the cores. 3 winds for this length.
  12. The result. Very robust but flexible connection.
