Crankshaft position sensor wiring (what are these little metal things for?)

I want to change the connector for my crankshaft position sensor on my 1999 Intrepid 2.7 SE. This is what my connector looks like. There is a newer connector in 2000. Looks like it was redesigned. Anyway this picture is what Mopar sells. My question is, why is there 6 wires included? And what are the little metal things in the picture? Are those some kind of wire butt connectors? I can still get this at the dealer for a reasonable price. Part number 5135637AA
Circuit component Magenta Font Cable Fashion accessory

Yes those metal things I think are for wires but not sure how to use them.
Those are splice connectors. Then you heat shrink over them. 3 of each of 2 different wire gauges. Use the wire color and size that matches the factory harness, and repair using the correct connectors and shrink tubing.

Ok. So how exactly do those go over the wires and how do you squeeze them?
