Types of Electrical Connectors Offered by Electrical Basics
Our selection features the following types of electrical connectors.
Screw-on Wire Connectors: These wire connectors are basically twist-on connectors, which feature wing-like extensions for easy installation using a nut driver or any other specialized tool. We provide standard, high-temperature, and economy screw-on wire connectors. These connectors are not recommended for outdoor and underground applications and can be easily used with solid or stranded wires.
Winged Wire Connectors: These connectors feature a winged outer body, which assures better grip to electricians working with them. The outer body also offers leverage while twisting the wires on the connectors. Our winged wire connectors are usually considered for projects, which require a large number of connections.
Push-in Wire Connectors: These connectors are better alternatives to wire twisting and help reduce motion fatigue caused due to repetitive wire twisting. These connectors are used in applications where multiple connections may be required. The connector’s clear visual outer shell offers better visibility of internal connections. In short, this outer shell helps identify loose connections or other faults. Color-coded push-in wire connectors offered by us are ideal for new construction, new installation, remodeling, as well as other OEM and DIY applications.
Nylon Pigtail Connectors: These are closed-end and crimp-on wire connectors, which are used to secure electrical connections in electrical boxes. We recommend these electrical wire connectors for applications where wires may be subjected to vibrations. Wires are connected before installing the pigtail on them.
