An electrical splice is the joining of two or more
electrical conductors by mechanically twisting them
together or by using a special splicing device. Since
splices can cause electrical problems, they must be made
carefully. Splices must be able to withstand any
reasonable mechanical strain that might be placed on the
connection. They also must allow electricity to pass
through as if the wire had never been broken. Some of the
more common splices are explained below.

Because it is simple to make, the pigtail splice is
probably the most commonly used electrical splice.
