MARS Term-Lok compressor stake on repair kits are designed with the
technician in mind! During servicing of the air conditioning system or refrigeration
system, it is not unusual for a technician to remove the compressor cover to find the
electrical connector or spade terminal broken or melted away from the compressor.
In reconnecting the electrical power, the metal plate is often found to have
deteriorated to such an extent that the conventional female connector will no longer
attach to the spade type male connector. Technology for reattaching a metal plate
to the metal pin without damaging the encapsulated block is not normally available
thus requiring the technician to attempt various types of crimping arrangements to
avoid replacing the compressor assembly (which normally does not work).
The MARS Term-Lok is a brass cylindrical tube with a diameter large enough to
slip over the pins and has a stainless set screw to lock onto the terminal. TermLok
comes in packages of one or three terminal locks with color coded 65 strands,
600 volt permanently attached wire, with wrench provided for easy application.
Once installed the compressor cover may be placed back over the terminals
without any obstructions.
