Don't ya just love cheap, easy, elegant solutions that actually work?
The above is one of 'em.

I'd like to add - 
Put a bit of antioxidant stuff on each wire before you crimp it. It doesn't 
take much.
Also, use the correct size butt splice and, as Rog points out, the correct 
I usually spray the joint with a spray silicone before covering it, but this 
may be overkill.

Personally, I prefer the uninsulated connectors and heat-shrink tubing method 
of installation. Some of the covers on the insulated ones are pretty brittle 
and leave a lump, like a snake that just swallowed something. When you're done 
you have a bunch of wires and this big lump at the splice.
The uninsulated type (or just remove the insulation if that's all you can 
find) makes a much neater job of it.
