Posi-Tap connectors make it easy to tap into a motorcycle's "hot wire" in the electrical system. The lower part of the Posi-Tap works like the normal Posi-Lock or Posi-Twist connectors. Strip the wire or wires and place them in the male threaded tube. Then screw on the center section. 

The Posi-Tap can fit just about anywhere on a motorcycle where you need to tap into a hot wire to power lighting, auxiliary switches, heated clothing leads or more. The Posi-Tap is made of Nylon 66, and the internal conductor material is tin plated brass. They're waterproof, vibration proof and can be re-used.

Why You Need This: Every now and then, the situation arises that an electrical device needs to be connected or "tapped" into an existing wiring harness.  The T-tap or clam shell type wire tap connectors have been on the market for years, but are real junk as they always seems to wiggle loose and are permanent once installed.

Posi-Tap wire connectors may be the best wire taps ever made.  Posi-Taps provide a quick, easy and semi-permanent way to splice a new wire into an existing harness. No special tools are required to install, the Posi-Taps are re-useable, they stay tightly in place and if removed, the original wire is left in tact with minimal distortion (just a little hole that can be taped or touched up with silicone).


Installation Tip: There are two different ends on the Posi-Tap, the pointed end which pierces the wire to be tapped and the clamping end that connects to the new wire. It is easiest to install the Posi-Tap on the wire to be tapped first. Cradle the wire in the groove of the threaded cap holder (the larger cap) and screw the body of the Posi-tap in place where it is finger tight. Now install the wire of the new item to the body of the tap. Strip about 1/4" (6 mm) of insulation off each end of the wire, insert the threaded caps over the ends of the wire and slightly fan out the loose strands of wire. Do not twist the ends of the wire prior to installing them in the threaded cap. Install the cap and wire into the body of the lock and begin to thread the cap in place, while keeping pressure on the wire while tightening the cap to the body. Once snug, give the wire a gentle tug to see if it has locked properly, it should not move or pull out. If it does try again, you may need to strip just a hair more of insulation off the wire.
