The Melni BD-2HLS is a mechanical connector that can replace existing commercial, mechanical and crimp-style connectors. Its crimpless installation design and spiral insert technology simplifies the connection process making it safer, easier and less expensive. Invented by Mark Melni, the connector was initially featured on ABC’s Shark Tank and now Remke Industries (Wheeling, IL) is the Master Distributor of Melni Connectors for the electrical industry. Specific benefits include the following:
- While traditional 2-hole lugs are non-range taking, the Melni BD-2HLS accepts anything between 2/0 AWG and #2AWG, spanning a large range of cable and wire sizes, and drastically reducing installation time.
- The BD-2HLS is all that’s required for a variety of electrical applications. With the Melni BD-2HLS, an everyday wrench is all that’s needed to forge a fast and reliable connection.
- It exceeds the UL secureness standards by over 250 pounds and is ergonomically better than any other traditional crimping tool on the market today, and is UL-rated for both aluminum and copper cabling, reducing the number of tools required for daily installations.
Melni’s spiral insert technology collapses around the conductor as the nut on the end of the connector is tightened, resulting in a complete wrapping of the conductor with the Melni Connector. The elements inside the connector constrict down on top of the conductor, creating a perfect environment for the electrical transfer. This process eliminates the time-consuming, unreliable and expensive crimping, soldering and wrapping.
