Mattos Designs Gel Filled Connectors 200 Pak
UR-Gel Filled Connectors from Mattos Designs use an insulation displacement contact design for fast, simple, and reliable terminations. The UR Connector can accept any two or three wire combinations of 18-26 AWG with a maximum insulation OD (Outer Diameter) or 1.67mm. These connectors are gel filled to provide moisture resistance and inhibit corrosion. This eliminates cutting of cable pairs or opening cable pairs. These connectors are designed specifically for pixels by Mattos Designs and are suitable for pigtail, pixel replacement and power injection applications.
To use, simply insert the wires you would like to connect (IE 2 or 3 ground wires, power wires, OR data wires) into the connector, and squeeze the button down using pliers. There is no need to strip the insulation on your wire. Gel will be displaced to cover and seal any open ports and connections.

Good Early Indicators
These are easy to use. I've used a few hundred now with no issues making the connection on a variety of wire sizes and configurations (but do keep a rag handy for the little bit of gel that squeezes out). They can also be taken off if you make a mistake (though I wouldn't reuse one)... once you get the technique down. The one thing I wish I knew is how long these will hold up in the field / weather. I'll be happy to tell you in a few years, long after you've purchased them already.
The quality was not near the quality I have come to expect from Mattos. At least 25-35% of them the cap had fallen off, and only a few of them could be put back together to work right. Mentioned it to online chat and was kinda blown off that there has been issues during shipping. This is the ONLY product I have ever not been satisfied with from Mattos.
