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.
