Wire connectors: Electricians challenged by having to make wiring connections across a wide variety of wire sizes will appreciate the re-introduced Twister® LT Wire Connector from IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., now available in bright, easy-to-identify orange.
Exceptionally versatile, the Twister® LT accommodates solid or stranded wire from 2 #22 AWG to 3 #12 AWG. This advantage translates into fewer wire connectors that an electrician must carry in his tool tote or truck, since a single Twister® LT can do the work of up to four different size standard wire connectors plus a yellow wing-style connector. The wide range means the Twister® LT can tackle any project from small gauge thermostat control wires up to larger gauge lighting or receptacle wires. No matter the project, the Twister® LT gets the job done right in the most cost-effective, timesaving way.
"The Twister® LT can handle virtually any standard electrical combination found in residential construction, as well as many light commercial applications," said Cassie Donnelly, Product Manager for IDEAL Wire Termination. "They deliver the same high performance electricians have come to expect from IDEAL, yet are very versatile, making them perfect for electricians who are doing several different types of wiring jobs throughout the day. Plus, their proven Twister® swept-wing design gives the electrician a comfortable, secure grip with less fatigue, even when they are making hundreds of connections a day."
Electricians using the IDEAL Twister® LT Wire Connector will know they are making a safe, long-lasting connection whether they are connecting by hand or using an IDEAL Twist-a-Nut™ Screwdriver or SpinTwist™ Connector Tool. The live-action, square-wire spring expands and threads quickly onto conductors without the need for pre-twisting. The contoured swept-wings provide exceptional torque when applying by hand and the hexagonal shaped head allows for installation with a standard 1/4-inch nut driver. The deep skirt helps protect against flash-over.
Although big on features, the Twister® LT offers a lean profile with compact dimensions that helps in installations where box-fill is a concern - such as recessed lighting, dimmers, GFCIs, and new USB-style receptacles.
IDEAL Twister® LT Wire Connectors are UL Listed and CSA Certified to work with solid or stranded copper wire. They are rated to 600V maximum in building wire applications and 1000V maximum in signs and lighting fixtures.
