Connecting the connectors is quite simple. It is important to ensure that the optional heat shrink tubing is slid over the cable, first the smaller one and then the larger one. Strip about 5 millimeters from both cables. Then, place the ferrules in the jaws of the crimping tool. Next, place the cable in the clamping part of the ferrule. Ensure that the cable sheath is placed in the rear part of the ferrule so that the ferrule is also secured to the sheath. Push the ferrules with the cable through the rubber in the connector until the front of the ferrules is at the same height as the front of the connector. Place the green wedge at the front into the connector and press it firmly. Optionally, the connector can be additionally sealed with the shrink hose.
