Hi. My name is Malich and I’m the Training Manager at InterConnect, where Connections Matter. Today we’ll be looking at why we package a harness and why it’s important, as well as show you what the finished product looks like.

How To Pack an F-16 Wiring Harness
Here we have a small F-16 harness and we’ll start this packaging process by protecting the connector with a small piece of bubble wrap. We do this by wrapping the connector with this bubble wrap tightly and securely, folding it over, and then securing it with a piece of packing tape. This will protect it from any damage during transit. We will also protect the inside of this four-pin flat using the same method as the connector.
After both connectors have been protected with a good layer of bubble wrap, we begin the entire wrapping process of the harness. This is a Lockheed Martin harness, so what’s required is three layers of bubble wrap on one side and two on the other. And there we have it; two on the side and three on that side. And now we’ll fold up the sides by curling it in using a small piece of tape. Again, this is to protect the harness from any kind of damage it can come across during transit. We want to make sure that our product gets to the customer in pristine condition. Afterall, this is the last connection we’ll have with the product before it gets to the customer.
So after the harness has been wrapped in bubble wrap, we then prepare a box for it according to size and shape of the harness. There are some requirements for what needs to go on the box. For this demonstration, we just put “Made in USA” and our packing list. On the bottom of the box, we have packing paper to secure the bottom of the harness. We’ll place the harness in there as well as the paper work that’s required with it. We also have a checklist of documents to provide with the package. Here we have a test report as well as a certificate of compliance. It is extremely important that these are shipped with the harness to the customer.
And there you have it. This is a fully finished, ready-to-ship harness. Thank you for watching and be sure to go to our website for more blogs, vlogs, and updates.
