I rarely bother with heat shrink, though. It is just too hard to properly shrink. Never had any luck with hair dryers. I do own a little butane torch, but even with that most heat shrinks will only shrink on one side or more one one side than the other or burn or whatever. I wish they worked as advertised.
Even heating while spinning the crimp & wire between your fingers and KEEP THE TORCH MOVING!! I just installed over 40 heat shrink crimp connectors in the last five days and every one was done with my mini butane torch, I prefer my heat gun but in 40 crimps I ruined none...
