Manufacturing Insulation Piercing Needle Clusters

These needle clusters are used not only in E-Z-Hook products, but sold as raw material components to many of our clients. We even sell them to “competitors” for use in their products! While we are known for finished goods, many of our raw material components are available for sale. Over 20 years ago we started making these needle clusters for our p/n 82-2.

Since then we have developed variations with 23 to 33 needles. These are hand assembled in our plant in California by the thousands.  Contact us to meet your design requirements with our needle cluster technology. This product technology is popular with our Aerospace and Defense clientele.

Defense and Security Applications

These handy little devices represent the XB product line created for the defense and security industries. Originally a “modification” to our 82-2 harness board product, these wire piercing devices are fully insulated on the exterior and offer a screw down clamp to ensure a secure and solid connection upon engagement with the wire. Once the XB is hooked on you can rest assured that it isn’t coming off until you decide to physically unclamp the device. The V-grove above the nailbed allows for various sized wire dimensions and ensures they can easily be directed over the wire bed for optimal connection. We understand there is often no room for technician error in the field- and this product was made with that requirement in mind.

The XB parts are available in red, yellow and black with factory installed leads. The most preferred lead is an 18 gauge PVC wire to a shrouded banana plug, but contact us for various connector options. This product is also available as a lead set or kit for specific industry requirements.

Making Products the Old Fashioned Way

Since 1956 E-Z-Hook has been making quality test products and accessories. Sure we have changed, grown, and added product lines. As required we have altered our manufacturing process to ensure our product line adheres to regulations such as REACH, ROHS, and the Dodd-Frank Conflict Mineral Act. We no longer operate out of a personal garage in Kentucky like we did in 1956, but in our own 24,000 square foot manufacturing plant in Arcadia, California. Instead of one person designing and making the products, we have a team of employees, many with over 25 years of experience.

WE HAVE CHANGED. WE HAVE GROWN. WE ARE DIFFERENT………

OR ARE WE REALLY JUST THE SAME?

It caught my attention while I was filing away old marketing materials that our marketing message was the same. How funny. In hearing this you might think, yikes, 60 years and still saying the same thing? Yes, in fact, 60 years and we are still saying the same thing. It’s not because our marketing department has been lazy, or ineffective, or void of fresh ideas. It’s because 60 years ago our marketing focus was on the attributes of our products. Those product attributes haven’t changed, and we are proud of that!
