    Default Bear Trap Washer/Terminals

    Does anyone know a source for the solder-on “bear trap” washer/terminal used on wire ends? 1st photo is from an old VL harness. The 2nd photo is an after-market harness.
    Thanks, William

    Hey William. I got some small brass grommets from JoAnns, tapped them with a blunt punch to start the edges bending over until it looked ready to wrap the wire. Wrapped it, bent them over and soldered them. As close as I could get to the original fender light wire on my 37. Hope this helps20190109_183908.jpg20190109_184605.jpg20190109_184659.jpg20190109_185556.jpg

    This is the end result. Not as pretty as some, but better than others! I agree, doing it yourself is the way to go.20190109_193719 (1).jpg

    so i just talked with Chris a few minutes ago and he is having the progressive dies made up to reproduce the factory correct Hollingsworth terminal connectors. he expects to have these connectors available in approximately 3 months. Chris said to watch his website for availability. and he sells the brass terminals for 30 cents each.

    I spoke with Chris today as well and ordered a few. Looking forward to seeing the Hollingsworth terminals.
