When I first saw the technology and capabilities of the TE Connectivity RAYCHEM Tinel-Lock Adapters I was so impressed that I wanted to kit these products so it would be available for everybody to experience its wonderful abilities. Offering high-performance sealing and strain relief in a wire management application, RAYCHEM Tinel-Lock adapter kits are perfect for many industries such as aerospace, marine and mass transit.

Tinel-Lock adapters are generated with a smart descriptive number to meet your required needs. TE Connectivity allows you to generate a custom Tinel-Lock adapter with the option in choosing the adapter family, material, finish, angle, order number, entry size, and ring designator. When I designed these kits I added the Tinel-Lock ring attached and unattached to give the option to all you kinesthetic learners a hands-on experience in physically heat shrinking the ring on to the Tinel-Lock adapter.

The Tinel-Lock ring is made from a special shape memory metal that shrinks uniformly when heated. They are also marked with thermochromic paint, which changes color when the correct installation temperature is reached. The Tinel-Lock ring is used to terminate copper cable braid directly onto the rear of the adapter, which is why I also included the braid sock in the kits so you can witness the braid sock and Tinel-Lock ring technology all in one adapter. The braid-sock is constructed from tinned copper wire and has a handling characteristic that enables it to be pulled down onto a wide range of cable diameters.

If you are looking to use Tinel-Lock adapters for your business, I would suggest looking into kit no. 1-2110842-0 for a broad representation of parts within the family.
