Tricks to making a daisy chain?


#1

I am currently re wiring my costume made stick it worked great for 4 months then buttons started to randomly stop working. I i checked my wires and wouldn’t you know my daisy chain was loose and the connections were not solid. I have rather big hands so fiddling with these wires proves itself to be a rather big challenge. I was wondering if anyone has found any tricks to doing this.

What i am currently doing is soldering the tips then clamping a quick disconnect to the ends to make the chain. Any advice would be a great help.

Thx,

yeah don’t solder then crimp, you need the wire to be malleable for the crimp to work.

Twist the two wires together then crimp, if they’re still loose then strip twice as much wire, twist, fold over itself, then crimp that.
