Although the western union splice is the best practice, it can be difficult to do in tight spots with short wires. Most of the time with small wire low voltage spices, I simply strip back about 3/8ths on each wire, twist together in a pigtail, solder, fold it over, and slip on the heat shrink. Quick, easy, and much better than crimped splice links.
