How Do I Seal Parallel Wires?

Question:  How do I seal up parallel, touching wires when dealing with a tap?

Answer:  It is probably a lot easier than you think.  Raychem's CRSM is designed for applications exactly like that.  Here is a diagram of what the tap looks like after installation:
Notice the parallel wires to the left
In this case, the CRSM-CT includes (as one of the components) a sealant strip that is wrapped (in a figure-8 pattern around and through the two wires that are touching.  This (along with the adhesive of the CRSM-CT shrink sleeve) acts to encapsulate that section of the two wires and protect the connection.
