How do you splice a coaxial cable?

Mine was intentionally and maliciously cut . As a temporary repair I cut back the insulation to expose the wire - and did this on both sides - and stuck that wire into a splitter. It's not secure of course.

They do sell fittings you can crimp on each wire now--also a barrel fitting that will allow both to be properly connected--if outside tape it good.

Fussable link removal

To repair any blown fuse link use the following procedure:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

  2. Cut the damaged fuse link from the wiring harness and discard it. If the fuse link is one of three circuits fed by a single feed wire, cut it out of the harness at each splice end and discard it.

  3. Identify and procure the proper fuse link with butt connectors for attaching the fuse link to the harness.

  4. To repair any fuse link in a 3-link group with one feed:

    1. After cutting the open link out of the harness, cut each of the remaining undamaged fuse links close to the feed wire weld.

    2. Strip approximately 1 / 2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the detached ends of the two good fuse links, Then insert two wire ends into one end of a butt connector and carefully push one stripped end of the replacement fuse link into the same end of the butt connector and crimp all three firmly together.

Care must be taken when fitting the three fuse links into the butt connector as the internal diameter is a snug fit for three wires. Make sure to use a proper crimping tool. Pliers, side cutter, etc. will not apply the proper crimp to retain the wires and withstand a pull test.

    1. After crimping the butt connector to the three fuse links, cut the weld portion from the feed wire and strip approximately 1 / 2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the cut end. Insert the stripped end into the open end of the butt connector and crimp very firmly.

    2. To attach the remaining end of the replacement fuse link, strip approximately 1 / 2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the wire end of the circuit from which the blown fuse link was removed, and firmly crimp a butt connector or equivalent to the stripped wire. Then, insert the end of the replacement link into the other end of the butt connector and crimp firmly.

    3. Using rosin core solder with a consistency of 60 percent tin and 40 percent lead, solder the connectors and the wires at the repairs then insulate with electrical tape or heat shrink tubing.

Heat shrink tubing must be slipped over the wire before crimping and soldering the connection.

  1. To replace any fuse link on a single circuit in a harness, cut out the damaged portion, strip approximately 1 / 2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the two wire ends and attach the appropriate replacement fuse link to the stripped wire ends with two proper size butt connectors. Solder the connectors and wires, then insulate.

  2. To repair any fuse link which has an eyelet terminal on one end such as the charging circuit, cut off the open fuse link behind the weld, strip approximately 1 / 2 in. (13mm) of insulation from the cut end and attach the appropriate new eyelet fuse link to the cut stripped wire with an appropriate size butt connector. Solder the connectors and wires at the repair, then insulate.

  3. Connect the negative battery cable to the battery and test the system for proper operation.

Do not mistake a resistor wire for a fuse link. The resistor wire is generally longer and has print stating, "Resistor-don\'t cut or splice\'\'.

When attaching a single No. 16, 17, 18 or 20 gauge fuse link to a heavy gauge wire, always double the stripped wire end of the fuse link before inserting and crimping it into the butt connector for positive wire retention.

My son trip over the cable cord and pulled out the cable connector, were you connect the cable cord.

  • Using a wire cutting tool, cut and remove the outer sheath of the coaxial cable approximately 1/2-inch down from the end of the cable. Take care not to cut too deep or you will damage the aluminum sheeting and perhaps even the plastic wire insulation. Peel back the aluminum sheeting so it wraps around the outer sheathing and remove about 1/4 inch of the white plastic wire insulation using the wire cutting tool to expose the thin cable wire.
  • Attaching Connector
  • Slide the ferrule ring, which is the metallic piece used to hold the connector on the cable, onto the coaxial cable. Push the connector onto the cable so the white plastic wire insulation rests up against the inside of the connector. Slide the ferrule ring forward so it covers the bottom end of the coaxial connector.
  • Finishing
  • Crimp the ferrule ring tightly around the wire and the connector. You may notice that some of the aluminum sheeting that you pulled down sticks out of the bottom of the ferrule ring. Trim the sheeting before using the cable.

    How do i splice the power cord back together

    You will need to cut away the outer rubber insulation. Be careful not to cut the insulation on the 3 separate wires. Then you will need to remove about three fourths of a inch of insulation from each of the three wires. If you can solder, then solder the black to black, green to green , white to white. Then Tape with electrical tape each wire separately. Do a good job of taping. If you cannot solder, then go to a hardware store a buy # Wire Nuts. Take the loose end of the cord with you so as to get the right size of Wire Nut. The wire Nut repair is bulky , but secure. You are using a lot of Amps with the Steamer so you want a good job, lest the repair gets hot. Either repair I mentioned will work safely and well.
    Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!

    Cut extension cord

    This happens a lot with circular saws too.

    You can strip off the insulation from each side of the cut and connect the wires (be sure to match colors!) and wrap the whole assembly in electrical tape, but you really are best off replacing the cord.

    If you do repair it, tie a knot in the cord so there's no stress on your repair job when you tug on the cord.

    I just did some reading and found out the name of the knot you want is actually the "Euro death-knot" (best example is in this picture)

    Tie it with the cut ends just like the ropes in the picture, then do your splice job on the ends of the wires.

    My phone line comes through a cable modem. how do i connect

    well no promises but this may work

    items you will need

    2 coaxial cables

    3 way coaxial splitter

    1 old phone cable you can sacrifice

    soldering iron (optional)

    solder (optional)


    take a coaxial cable and cut on of the ends off, throw the severed end away and strip the insulation of the coaxial cable (only strip about 3 inches of it away.

    seperate the coper (or sliver wire) from the wire center wire and twist toeghter to make a neat wire

    strip some of the insulation away from the white center post revealing the coper wire inside

    cut end off phone cable and take about 4 inched of insulation away

    connect the green wire of the phone cable to the copper outter most wire of the coaxial cable and tape it so that there isnt any of the outer most wire showing

    connect the white wire to the center wire of the coaxial cable and tape so that there isnt any wire showing

    connect the coaxial/phone cable you just made to the 3 way splitter

    connect the coaxial line that comes from your house to the splitter

    connect the other coaxail cable to the last available port on the splitter

    connect the non-modified coxial line to your modem/router

    connect the phone cable to the fax

    this might work, no promises, i havent tried it, but it might work and is worth a try

    Can sirius antennas be cut and spliced back together

    If your antenna cable has been cut or severed, it can be repaired without the need for a replacement.

    You will need the following things:

    Small 600 degree soldering iron and solder.
    Liquid flux for soldering the braid.
    Small sizes of heat shrink tubing.
    Small heat gun.
    Small pliers, cutter, and Xacto knife.

    1) The first step is to use the Xacto knife to cut both ends of the antenna cable so you have a clean end.

    2) Using the Xacto knife roll the cable on a board and gently cut all around the cable to cut the outer insulation. Remove about 1/2 inch of the insulation from each end.

    3) Push the braid back to expose the center wire and gently roll the cable and cut the center insulation to expose about 1/10 inch of the center wire. With your small long nose pliers, bend the center wire into a small hook shape.

    4) Repeat all the above steps on the other end of the wire.

    5) Put a 1 inch piece of heat shrink tubing on one end ( the black piece), and a 1/4 inch piece of heat shrink (the white piece) on the center conductor. Look at the picture to see this.

    5) Hook the two ends together. Gently squeeze the hooks closed and solder them together. Be very careful when soldering this. Be quick so you do not apply to much heat and cause the heat shrink tubing to shrink on the side where you do not want it to be.

    6) Slide the small white heat shrink to cover the cooled solder joint you just made and use the heat gun to shrink the tubing in place.

    7) Now push the braids back together to cover over the connection you just made. Try make the braid smooth together by GENTLY rolling the cable between your fingers. Carefully solder the braid. A little liquid flux on the braid prior to soldering helps the solder flow and makes it look better.

    8) Slide the final piece of heat shrink tubing over the braid and shrink it with the heat gun.

    I have cut through the cable of a black and decker hedge trimmer Can it be repaired?

    yes. you can just connect the red wire to the red wire, white to white, green to green, black to black... you probably only have 2 wires in the cable. strip the insulation back, then take the wires and see if you have enough slack to connect them back by more than 2 in.. if not, add a 8" section of wire and splice it back in with wire nuts or other securement and cover it all in electrical tape very well... it will corrode much quicker now its been exposed to the elements... but use its life up before you get rid of it i say.

    Samsung htz310 home cinema system, speaker cable problem

    If it's just the speaker cable, it's an easy fix. There are two strands of wire for each cable. I would cut the cable at the break, seperate the strands carefully about two inches in each direction, either by pulling them apart, or by using a knife, being careful to preserve the insulation around each strand (sometimes pulling apart the strands will pull the insulation from one side or the other depending on how fragile it is - I usually just start the seperation with a knife, and then pull them apart slowly). Then you can strip back the insulation about an inch on either side of the break on each strand.

    To strip back the insulation, take a sharp knife and cut through the insulation by cutting around the wire on each strand about an inch back in both directions being careful to not cut through the wire. A few of the strands won't make a big difference, but if you cut too much it may be best to start over.

    Once you have about an inch of wire exposed on each strand, you can intertwine the wires to put them back together. Just hold the bare ends of each seperated strand side-by-side and twist them together. If you mix up which strands are which, mark one of the sides with tape or a sharpie to make sure you twist the right ends together. Usually there is a white stripe on the positive strand, or some other marking that runs the length on one side only, so that's a good guide for putting the right wires back together.

    Once that is done, you need to isolate the bare wires from each other. I usually bend them parrallel to the cable in opposite directions, and then use electrical tape run between them and around each strand. Once they are isolated and not in danger of touching, use some heatshrink tubing around the whole patch to make it lasting and durable. It won't look pretty, but it will work just fine. You can find heatshring tubing at Radio Shack. Just slide a big enough piece to cover the repaired area on from the end of the cable without the connector, and then use a hairdryer to shrink the tubing around the patch. If you don't have a hairdryer, you can use a match or candle. Just be careful.

    Alternatively, you can just wrap more electrical tape around the whole area in a diagonal, but tape isn't nearly as durable a patch as heatshrink.

    Hope that helps.
