Butt crimp connectors (the red/blue/yellow ones for joining electrical

can crimp one wire only, and then seperately crimp the second wire into the
The crimps would have to be longer than the normal ones, but it should be
much easier to get a secure join in awkward situtations.
(And before anyone says, yes I know you have to use proper ratchet action
crimping pliers, and yes, I know 'butt crimp' jokes are hilarious.)
