    Working on it!
    Hello all,

    Just picked up a 42 inch curved single row led light bar, 210 watt. I am looking for a two pin waterproof plug/connector to connect the light bar to the relay wiring harness.

    Suggestions (preferable Amazon)?

    Thanks in advance.
    Nick

    Any decent auto parts store should have a selection of GM (General Motors) weather pack connectors.

    Summit racing has em too.

    Any inexpensive flat connector like this should work (as long as wire size is adequate) since being totally waterproof isn't that important as long as the positive and negative connectors are separated. Positive to positive or negative to negative connections cant short due to moisture.

    But if you are bound and determined to get something waterproof just search for two pole waterproof connectors at any marine supply store. Various things like this are pretty common and don't require specialized crimp tools like the pin type OEM automotive connectors.

    The one I posted above is 10 AWG, extreme overkill for the OP's application. Here is a picture of the vehicle side when not in use, the exposed pin is the negative. And yes, solder and heat shrink. Always.
