What kind of electrical cleaner should I use on pin connectors

Recommended Posts

Caig DeoxIT is some seriously good stuff. The contact enhancer can do a good job of reviving intermittent contacts, after a proper cleaning. Of course, nothing will fix a poor mechanical connection, other than just fixing it. Highly recommended. Jay

Vern, I've used Deoxit and it worked fine HOWEVER it took a while as it seemed sooooooooo expensive for a tightwad like myself lol. I use it on my RV, Toad and Trailer connectors a couple times each season...Back when I was practicing I used a lot of I believe it was CRC electronic contact spray cleaner which did a god job of cleaning. Hey I go back to the old contact TV channel switch tuners lol

I was given a pint can of DeoxIT about 50 years ago by an uncle who was an electrican, still have about 1/3 can. Doubt I'll live long enough to empty the can. It wasn't full when I received it.
