Safe, dependable, and easy. No other connector offers as much as the B-TAP® insulation piercing connector. B-TAP® connectors are great for a wide range of applications such as temporary circuits, emergency repairs, disconnect/reconnect, remodeling, maintenance and repair, street lighting, service entrance, risers in high-rise construction, commercial metering, transformers, secondary midspan tap and much more. Self-insulating and weather-proof, B-TAP® connectors are installed using only a standard box or socket wrench. A breakaway torque nut guarantees a perfect connection every time. The grease filled rubber end caps provide superior water and corrosion resistance, while the insulation design eliminates downtime and power interruptions. That translates into a 60% installed savings compared to split bolts. The exclusive breakaway torque nut simply snaps off when UL torque requirements are met. No more guesswork! B-TAP® connectors can be safely installed on energized systems, eliminating power interruptions and downtime.
