By following our simple steps, customers will get the job done like the professionals; and getting it right first time means not having to do it again!

Hilltop Products, the manufacturers of heat shrink products, have published a handy How-To Guide for replacing heat shrink tubing.

The article, entitled How to Replace Heat Shrink Tubing, appears on the company’s official blog and takes readers through a set of 3 simple steps to a safe and successful replacement.

Heat shrink tubing can be used for a wide variety of purposes but is most commonly applied over electrical connectors. The project can be tricky to the uninformed, but as with all jobs involving electricity, it can also be hazardous.

Fortunately, all readers need to do is follow these simple steps.

Hilltop explains that this first step is the most important of all. They recommend that workers should find the tools that they need before making a start and they describe how the work area should be set up and made ready for the job.

Most importantly, they implore people working with wires to ensure that the electricity supply is switched off before they begin.

Next, the guide explains how workers should carefully cut the old heat shrink tubing to safely remove it from the way. This is accomplished by cutting the tubing length ways and peeling it away from the connection.

Understandably, it is imperative to avoid cutting through the wire. While the wire is exposed it is also a good idea to perform a visual inspection and ensure everything is in the right place.

Finally the replacement tubing is put in place. This requires a heat source, several of which are described within the article. Hilltop explains that the replacement must cover the entirety of the conductor since heat shrink tubing is an essential insulator.

Whether workers choose to use a heat gun, hair dryer or blowtorch, the article explains the slow and steady approach to applying heat to create a tight, sealed connection.

The article is just one of many insightful How-To Guides from the experts at Hilltop Products.

Joanne Walsh, from Hilltop, recognises that not everybody who undertakes a heat shrink tubing project will be an electrician, but by following their simple steps, it is possible to get the job done in safety.

She said: “It can be tricky and even risky to replace heat shrink tubing, but with the right advice the job is fast, straightforward and perfectly safe.

“By following our simple steps, customers will get the job done like the professionals; and getting it right first time means not having to do it again!”
