Push-In Wire Connectors are used to join two or more AWG wires together. It is a fast, easy, and secure way to create an insulated connection for electrical wiring installations. Push In connectors are an alternative option to using twist-on wire caps (wire nuts) to form effective wire connections, and they provide insulation that is equivalent to the conductors. No twisting or taping of conductors is required.
Before inserting wires into the push-in connectors, the ends of the wires should be stripped of their vinyl sheath. Each single wire end should then be pushed into a single connector port, and once connected, it remains securely in place. The clear plastic housing makes wire connections easier to manage and contains the wires in the housing unit to minimize the effects of an electrical malfunction.
With a Push in wire connector you can plan your electrical wiring arrangement by choosing the right number of ports needed for each electrical situation. Choose between 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 8 ports to best fit your electrical wiring needs.
Note: Only (CU) copper wiring can be accommodated with these Push In connectors! Before starting any electrical installation, make sure the power is turned off.!
