Terminals & Connectors FAQs

Q How can I tell what size ring terminal I require?

Some posts will state if they are M6, M8 or M10 etc. For these, you simply need a ring diameter that matches the number. If you do not know the size, you can use some measuring calipers or a ruler across the width of the post to measure it. 

Q Do you stock a blade terminal for 16mm2 cable or larger?
A No, blade terminals are not available for larger-size cables due to the high currents that are typically expected with such cables. For help finding a solution please contact a member of our team on 01844 885 100 or
Q Can't I just solder my cables?
A Soldering cables is not recommended in vehicle electrics as the solder can weaken over time due to vibration, leading to poor connections. Crimping is much more stable and longer lasting.
