The new 3M™ Cold Shrink QS4 Integrated Splice Kit is a premier offering that utilizes our field-proven 3M™ Cold Shrink QS-III Splice Body with additional features that make installation quick and easy. This exciting product integrates all of the layers of a shielded power cable splice into one compact joint.

With this splice, 3M is introducing our easy-to-use yellow core and rejacketing tube. We incorporated our smooth-edged shield sock (non-fraying ends) with optional customizable ground braid. The Shielded Power (SP) inline splice kits below are designed for joining Jacketed Concentric Neutral (JCN), Flat Strap Neutral, Tape Shield and Longitudinally Corrugated (LC) power cables. The splice includes a 4 AWG, four-foot long integrated ground braid for attaching to an external ground (factory installed ground braid extends approximately four feet beyond the end of the rejacketing after installation). Note: Cable sizes shown below are for standard insulation thickness. Final determining factor is cable insulation O.D. *If using a 3M™ Shearbolt Connector QCI Series for 500 kcmil to 500 kcmil splices, use the QS4-15SP-QCI-500-750-BCA kit or the QS4-15SP-500-1000-BCA kit with the QCI 350-750 connector purchased separately.
