No solder install

I used the brown solder-less connector already on the switch. Drill the two inner holes with 1/16" bit. I threaded the wire through switch hole per instructions approximately 2", then I stripped about 3/4" and threaded them through the brown connector. I wound the wire around the connector as shown. Use a small screwdriver to press into the vertical grooves. Trimming and then installing the connector ensuring the correct polarity per instructions. Its tight but use a proper fitting flat blade and it will snap in place.

Probably take the same time but with no solder!!

Looks good, there are are a few guys on here that have done that. I may have to steal your pics, and add them to my procedure.

Go for it, no need to steal - just give due.

I have more in my photo album if you like. I also did a "no cut/splice" power install that I felt wouldn't be up to some peoples standards, but pics are there also. It is very simple & straight forward and actually very secure. I can do a little write up if it might help some of those leary of cutting or using splice connectors.

I normally would have soldered and shrinkwrapped the splice but it was hot and I saw this avenue and took it.

Sorry , I should have been more clear . I went into your gallery and checked out your no solder power splice idea . I think I have it figured out though , you took the power wires through a blank in the plug and inserted them into the correct pins on the back side , correct ?

Does the wire being in there cause any issue with re-seating the plug ?

Ok - yes that is correct, I used the empty slot closest to the required power pins. I stripped about 1/4" off the ends, inserting into the correct holes and made sure the insulating was just flush with the surface - pulling the slack back up through connector.









Because the pins are actually 'blades', it provides a very snug fit. The wires will prevent the locking feature of plug, but trust me you will not need it. The first time I tested it I pushed it in hard and was a struggle to pull apart. No damage to the pins or wires and works excellent.

Although I normally would solder my connections, this is a viable substitute. The entire install could theoretically be done with a good pocket knife or gerber tool.

I was curious and looked at the connector behind the AC panel today and mine has a blade that goes through the spare you used as a chase , didn't seem like there would be enough room to fit the wires through there , does yours not have a blade that goes into that hole ?
