The ready heat shrink image in your post has incorrect link (but I loaded it and it looks good).

I understand the technique but they take too much work So I leave them for where I actually have to use them. In most places they are installed on terminals which go onto the open terminal block anyway, so there isn't much point in sealing. I do places that are exposed to moisture, propane locker of course etc.
