Outdoor Shrink Kit Installation Instructions:
Wrap the adhesive lined heat shrinkable tape around your lighting and connector in an overlapping spiral fashion, like you would normal electrical tape. Slide your heat shrink tubing over the lighting, connector, and tape. Shrink the tubing and tape using a heat gun. The adhesive will melt when the heat is applied, and solidify when cooled creating a watertight seal.
The minimum melting point of the hot melt adhesive is 95*C (204*F).
