    Time delay alert/distraction/signal. Could be useful, but the conditions have to be right.

    We were burning leaves and pine needles at the range today. We call it Redneck Roulette because there are always a few live rounds in the piles that we burn. They pop off harmlessly, splitting the case and not moving the bullet more than a few inches.

    As I was finishing my clean-up later in the evening I had three mismatched .45 Auto rounds that I'd found on the deck. Rather than carry them up to the disposal bin I tossed them into the glowing embers of the fire. I'd walked probably 70 yards when they went off.
    What I found odd was that they went off in a very even Pop..Pop..Pop. They blew out a nice hole in the smoldering ashes, and would certainly cause much confusion to someone entering my camp after I'd slipped into the darkness.

    I had to bob an couple wires on this pigtail and figured I'd leave them a little long so the splice wasn't at a bend in the harness. The trick is in sealing the bobbed ends.
    Since I use connectors that have a sealer inside, I can just drop a piece of rubber string or anything that won't absorb water and seal it in place. I could probably seal the ends with the sealer alone by just melting them over, but this gives me less chance of hot melted plastic dripping on anything... like me.

    I’ll usually use some of that liquid electrical tape and dab it around and into the ends of the connectors in waterprone areas. I’ve even used it for submersible wire connections on submersible well pumps. It’s supposedly rated for such uses. So far so good.
