Is it acceptable to do this? Pickups without soldering

What I want to do is to attach pickups by clipping the existing wire and attaching the new wire from the new pickup with the old wire by tieing the bare copper part together, after that I will put a heat shrink with glue lining over it to cover the connection, how does that sound? I want to do it this way because my house is very small that there are risks to running a soldering iron.

Thank you!

I would not do this..

as I think you're opening to door for a lot of ground and interference (noise) problems.
