A 3M Scotchlock T-tap wire splice is included with our direct wire kits.

The kits come with directions for using the splice. You just need to find a switched 12V wire (car stereo is a good source). Switched is important so that the detector isn't left on while your vehicle is off. If left on overnight, the detector can drain your car battery. You also don't want everyone that walks by your vehicle in a parking lot to see the pretty blue display lit up begging their attention.

Our direct wires already come with a screw lug and a blade crimped on to them.

The add-a-circuit solution which MEM_TEK described also works well but is not included with our kits or sold by us, you would have to purchase it separately elsewhere.
