Wiring Loom Tag Sleeves

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the insulating sleeving to go over each wiring loom tag.

 

What do people use these days and where can I get a length from?

 

Many thanks

 

Mike

Hi Mike,

if you get the heatshrink as a snug fit to the tag then do not shrink it - it may split. However it will stay there in the unshrunk condition.

 

Otherwise, if you want to shrink it make sure it is on the biggish side before shrinking.

Modern heat shrink usually shrinks by around 50%.

The standard shrink ratio is 2 to 1.

 

Quite easy to get 3 to 1 and this is useful if you have forgotten to put the sleeve on the wire first!

 

You can actually get 9 to 1. This is amazing to watch.
