Why Was The Bobtail Invented?

Our customers asked if we could provide them with a connector that could combine the termination speed of a quick termination style connector with the secure hold of an epoxy-style connector. Since no such connector existed, FIS invent it.

Our engineers exceeded all expectations. The revolutionary Bobtail™ connector is quick to install, provides high pull strength, and is less expensive than other quick termination style connectors.

Needless to say, Bobtail's generated a lot of excitement when they were "unleashed" into the marketplace just a few years ago. Since then, demand for Bobtail's has grown dramatically, as more and more installers discover this unsurpassed termination solution.
