Gonzo's "Wire Hand Splicing Technique"

Recommended Posts

It's actually pretty easy to do with a little practice. I show this to every class I teach, and every employee has to learn how to do this before I'll let them loose on a rewire job.

Thanks. I've spliced wire this way for so long I think I could do it blindfolded....ROFL. It's very affective when doing an entire harness from a body shop or when all the wires are cut off even with each other. You can patch a harness without any buldge in the loom. It really looks like you didn't do anything when it's done right.


An extra tip... If you are working with an old car and the customer wants to use only factory wire try this. Go back into the good section of the harness and cut out a section of wire equal to what will be showing outside of the taped loom or split loom area. Now splice in any color you have.... then... use the factory color at the end that will be exposed. Looking at the finished job no one will know that there is a different color inside the split loom or taped section.... all they see is the factory color at the exposed ends. Neat trick and saves trying to find "striped wire" or some odd color.




Very cool. Never seen that before. Thanks for the tip.

      A recent study, done by Harvard Business School, concluded that the real problem with attracting and retaining employees has more to do with the workplace environment, not pay or benefits. While the study did find that an adequate pay plan and offering an attractive benefits package did help with recruiting and retention, it’s not enough to satisfy the needs of employees, especially those of front-line workers.
      The study also stated that in 2021, many companies were convinced that giving raises, sign-on bonuses, and other perks would solve the worker shortage problem and prevent people from quitting. However, this strategy did not work. So, what does work regarding attracting quality people and keeping them employed?
      Essentially, it all comes down to the culture of your company.  Management: do all it can to consider the individual needs of your employees. Your employees want to feel that they have a voice, that their opinion counts, and that their role in your company is both respected and recognized. Yes, pay and a great benefits package will go a long way toward making your employees feel secure, but that’s only financial security. People want more than money.
      To attract and keep top talent requires creating a company that people feel proud to work for. You need to reach the hearts and minds of your employees. Become a leader that people are enthusiastic about working for. You want your employees bragging to their friends and family that your shop is a great place to work!
      Step one to attracting and retaining quality employees: Create an amazing workplace environment for your employees!  Trust me, happy employees make happy shop owners too!
