Secure Electrical Splices with Wing Wire Connectors
wire connector securely binds together two wires to create a continuous
flow of electricity. The wing screw on wire connector is easier to use
than other screw on connectors because of the sturdy ‘winged’ shape.
This allows for more leverage when twisting the wire connector on or off
the wires, thus providing more torque action when twisting wires
together without breaking. The result is a long lasting, tighter, and
more permanent electrical connection.
Tightly secures wire connections to prevent fire hazards
Features of the Winged Wire Connector:
• Helps to prevents electrical short circuits, over-heating, or other faults
• UL94V-2 thermoplastic flame retardant material with temperature rating of 221° F (105° C)
• 600/300 (maximum to minimum volt usage)
• UL listed and CSA approved
Wire range No. 18 thru No. 10 AWG
Specifications of the Yellow Winged Wire Connector:
• Min 2 #18’s Max 3 #12’s
• .717” (18.2 mm) outside maximum skirt width
• 1.016” (25.8 mm) overall length
• 100 pieces per box
wire connectors are used to splice two or more wires together in order to
create a positive and secure connection in many types of electrical
applications. Using a wire connecter is a safe and effective way to
modify existing wire connections, or to repair damaged wire connections.
The wing connector makes electrical repairs and installations faster to
do by eliminating the need to solder wires together. To use, simply
remove the specified length of insulation sheath to expose the bare
copper wire ends, twist the wire ends together, and then use the screw
on wing wire connector to securely hold the conducting wires in place.
wing wire connector is available in a variety of sizes, with a color
designation that represents the wire AWG range and volume of wires for
which the individual connector can be used.
Wing Wire Connectors
are popular with professional installers, contractors, OEM
manufacturers, and Do-it-yourselfers because of the strong nylon flame
retardant material, screw on design, and tight torqueing action that
creates the most stable and safe electrical wire connections.Please make sure all electricity is turned OFF before working with any electrical wires!
