What to do w/ unplugged exhaust sensor connectors

What is everybody doing w/ their unplugged exhaust sensor connectors? Ive electrical taped the hell out of em and zip tied them up, anybody found anything better? Im mainly worried for the winter months w/ salt getting in em causing the green death in the connectors. Thanks!!

If it were mine I would put dielectric grease on the connection and heat shrink the connector.

Great idea. We have customers that have done this and reported no issues. We are working on some "Dummy Plugs" to keep the connectors clean and dry. Not sure on when we will have them available, but a little grease and some tape should do the trick till then.

I like the dielectric grease idea and the dummy plugs even better. H&S put me first in line for the dummy plugs when they come out!!
