Posi-lock love

http://www.posi-lock.com/

A friend got me hooked on these back in my VW days, and they've ported over well to bikery. They work well, are cheap, and they don't cost 40 fucktons. May not be as totally awesome as splicing shit together with low-temp solder and a Bic lighter, but in my experience its been more practical. Keeps field expedient repairs from becoming headaches down the line.


Am I the only one using these things? Are there alternative uses I am yet to discover beyond their most obvious mundane functions? I'm generally a klutz with wiring, so these things are life savers for me but what about you guys? Likewise, if there's an -even better- product out there clue me in!

They are great. I use them for the front signals, which make it easy to remove bodywork to adjust valves, etc. Way easier than soldering...

Posi-Taps work well because they penetrate the insulation and seal around the hole made by the spike, preventing corrosion.
