Pretty good idea.
Those are sweet, and I have quite a few left from a kit that I bought from Fastenal. The kit I bought was pretty spendy so I try to use them on the exterior lighting and really important shit that I dont want to see again. I still use the 3M heat seal crimps for just about everything else. I have some great crimpers, so I trust those connections.
I never splice, I always run new wire from start to finish, works best that way.
There was a time I would butt splice anything. But not many teenagers understand the long term issues with such a repair. I still have drawer full of them but that is because I refuse to use the damn things. I suppose they have a use some where. I like the repair in that link. But I have gotten tot he point where I sodder and heat shrink everything. I prefer to run a whole new wire, but sometimes that is not feasable.
Interesting product. I've had good luck with the normal ones, but this would be easier, maybe?
And cleaner and better seal and less likely to snag and a better connection and...
