Step #2: Cut off both pairs of wires, leaving 1½” of wire on each strip.

Step #3: Pull smaller wires apart.  Then, twist same colors together.

Step #4: Make a connection by inserting a pair of  like-colored wires the entire way into the butt connector.  With them inserted the whole way, crimp the butt connector with Channel-Lock or Robo-Grip type pliers.


Insert both black wires the entire way into the butt connector. With wires fully inserted, crimp the butt connector with channel-lock or robo-grip type pliers Crimped butt connector all the way down

Step #5: Repeat the process (two wires per butt connector) for the remaining colored wire pair.
