Duo repair


long story, but short version is I managed to cut the cable for a duo in 2,  Oooops :mad:

I'm thinking some kind of waterproof connector to join it back together,

can anyone point me in the direction of something that will do the job, I know theres a few light guru's round here so hoping someone can help.



If you don't need to disconnect in the foreseeable future, perhaps just solder them back together and then heat shrink over the top of each solder joint, then heat shrink over both together. If possible best to stagger the solder joints.

Through crimps are the way to go, then adhesive heatshrink for a waterproof connection. Staggering the joints is good to keep it thin.
