    I want to share with you a simple trick that I have been using for many years. This trick will help you wind an electrical wire in a narrow and crowded place where an Electrical tape cylinder cannot fit.

    That's a neat trick.

    I always use heat shrink tubing on splices like that.

    That is a good trick, been doing that for years when heat shrink cannot be used. It is also better to start the wrap in a spiral along the wire. You also have to be sure your fingers are not dirty or you ruin the stick on the tape, However, I suggest that you used better quality tape. I NEVER use tape if the manufacturers is not willing to print their name on it.

    Thanks for that very good solution. I am often in that situation and when a joint needs soldering heat shrink sleeving cannot be used.

    Great idea. Have used differing versions of this. If there is a remote chance of moisture getting in I use 3m self sealing tape.
