We recently added 4/0 AWG eyelets to our selection of MEGA Eyelets!  In this family, we now offer 8, 6, 4, 2-1, 1/0, 2/0, 3/0, and 4/0 AWG parts!  We also offer many of these pats in pre-bent 90 and 45 degree variants.

MEGA Eyelets are the real deal: a man’s eyelet in a world of cheap imposters. MEGA eyelets provide incredibly low resistance connections and are three times as beefy as hardware store eyelets (see below pic).  When correctly installed, MEGA Eyelets provide a lifetime termination.  MEGA Eyelets are made from super-thick barrel stock, tin-plated to resist corrosion, and crimp-tool coded. These can be crimped or soldered. Made in the USA.

We also negotiated a heck of a deal on the industry standard crimping tool for these so we're passing the savings on to you!

So, why don't we sell the standard, inexpensive copper parts?  I mean, after all they're cheaper, right?  2 reasons:

1 - A copper eyelet crimped to a standard copper cable is not a lifetime termination.  Copper oxidizes and corrodes.  Over time, this causes the connection to break down from the inside out.  Conversely, installing one of our tin-plated MEGA eyelets on our tin-plated OFC and insulating the terminaton with adhesive lined heat shrink (we also offer), this is a lifetime termination that won't ever break down.
2 - Voltage drop.  Plain and simple, the more contact area that you can achieve between the cable and eyelet the lower the resistance.  The same goes for the contact area between the eyelet and connection point.  When we're talking about circuits that pass major current - 100A and up - this is a factor that you can measure.  300A and up and you're flat out losing performance - wasting it as heat in the terminations!

Anyone can be cheaper.  There can only be one BEST and at CE Auto Electric Supply, that's our business model.
