Answer: use a soldering iron to reconnect the severed electrical wire (s)!

An electric cable that has been cut does not necessarily have to be replaced, sometimes it is enough to repair it using wire strippers, a soldering iron, a little tin and a heat-shrinkable sheath. However, if you do not have any of these elements, it will probably cost less to replace the wire, rather than buying all these accessories ... Use the wire strippers to strip the two ends of the cable which has been cut. If more than one wire needs to be repaired, insulate them by surrounding them with electrician tape. Then use the soldering iron to heat the piece of tin and reconnect the damaged electrical wires. Then cut a piece of heat shrink tubing and slide it around the wire at the weld. Finally, heat the sheath with a lighter so that it contracts around the weld. You too, send us your brico question
