I've used this product. Its a brilliant idea and has worked well for me. A excellent product to keep in the truck for those surprise service calls. Don't forget to carry some source of heat so that you can heat shrink the connection.
Just never try to use it on telephone connections under ground, while using the crimp on waterproof connectors. I had to splice a cut telephone line a while back, got the lines working, put the shrink tube on and heated it up, told the homeowner to check his lines, and they didn't work. Had to cut it loose again to find out why, and the heat had melted the connections and broke the wire I know better now
Equipment that I install for monitering underground fuel and gas tanks supplies Scotchlocks for their connections in a Exp Prf Box. In Maine these boxes are almost always wet due to ground water or condensation. Scotchlocks seem to hold up but I prefer barrel crimps and 3M epoxy packs. It takes patience and experience to use the Epoxy packs right in my line of work but they generally hold up better.
