About the Melni Connector:

The Melni Crimpless Butt Splice Connector is revolutionizing the electrical industry by drastically decreasing connector install time. They are also creating a safer environment for electrical workers. While traditional direct burial and submersible connectors require hydraulic tools, specialized dyes, shrink wraps, and heat tools, all you need to install the Melni Butt Splice Connector is prepped cable and a standard wrench. Installation can happen in less than a minute!

Truly an example of ingenuity and innovation in the electrical industry, we are so proud of this product’s latest distinction. We encourage you to get online and vote by June 24th!
