Best Electrical Cam-Type Connectors in 2020



AIRTAK Wire Connectors waterproof cable terminals block 110PCS/Box Combination Suit For 3 Room Mixed Universal Type Fast Wiring Lighting Accessories Terminal China Review:


A truly amazing product - at least to me. I always used those big twisting caps to combine wires, and if there were more than three the caps wouldn't fit right or would fall off, and if they didn't you thought they would when you moved the wires a little. This solves all that - just push the wires into the holes and they lock in place. And there's a connector for however many wires you have to combine up to 6. Love this box!



Low Voltage Wire Connectors, TYUMEN 12pcs 2 Pin 2 Way Universal Compact Wire I Shape Terminals, No Wire-Stripping Required, Toolless Wire Connectors, Quick Splice Wire Wiring Connector for AWG 20-24 Review:


I had a little trouble at first, but figured out a couple tricks and they work great. 1. Even though it says ‘no stripping required’ I found stripping an 1/8 of an inch at the tip, improved success, especially with 16 or 18 gauge wire. And, use needle nose pliers to break out the plastic rings with bigger wires. Scissors just didn’t do the job for me. 2. I used pliers to crimp the ends closed. At first I was afraid the connector would break, but found out the harder I squeezed the better success I got. None of the connectors broke. I will be buying more. I hope this helps someone.



Wago 773 Push-wire connectors for junction boxes, 2 Connectors 773-162 (10 PK) Review:


I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out why this well known manufacturer says these will work with stranded wire. Once you see how stiff the clamping action is, you realize there is NO WAY a stranded wire can push its way it these connectors. When you attempt to push a stranded wire in, it balls up. A thought of tinning the wires and said ENOUGH ALREADY and threw them in the parts bin.



75PCS Push-in Wire Connector Wall-Nut 2/4/6/8 Port Conductor Combination Assortment Pack for Junction Boxes Review:


Found these connectors when looking for clean ways of expanding our wiring.

The connectors are high quality and do not bend as you are pushing the wires in, when you get the wire pushed in enough you hear a satisfying click. I used these with both solid core and stranded wires without much of an issue (Stranded was a little more difficult, but worked all the same).

The amount of connections you get and the different types is extremely helpful and this is a good kit to buy and have in your house.



Wire Connectors - TYUMEN 12pcs 2 Pin 2 Way Low Voltage Universal Compact Wire T Tap Connectors, No Wire-Stripping Required, Toolless Wire Connectors, Quick Splice Wire Wiring Connector for AWG 20-24 Review:


Super strong connector. Worth the premium in permanent “wire tapping” connections, like for hard wired dash cams and radar detectors.

Before buying these, I installed a Dash Camera in my car with old crappy blue crimp connectors from Auto Zone, and they didn’t provide a strong connection. The camera would randomly power off as the crappy crimps spun around the exposed wire.

THEN, I found these. The tapping connection is very strong and reliable, and it looks very “clean” when you are tapping into a factory wiring harness.

I strongly recommend these connectors. They worked with two different wire gauges - 22 and 18 in my case.

Lever Nuts, 75 Pcs Wire Connector Assortment Pack Compact Splicing Connector Lever Nut Kit for Electrical Wires Solid Stranded Flexible Wires A221-412 A221-413 A221-415 Review:


I was doing some DIY electrical work installing 3 dimmers in triple outlet box and new install. Knowing how many wires were going to land in this triple box not to mention incoming power I knew I would not have enough room using wire nuts which I don't trust anyway not to mention they take up too much room and continuously fall off even if you wrap the work with electrical tape. So with 3 new lights and incoming power I was able to tie all the whites together using the 5port connector and then of course did the same with the black hot wire and then the ground wires. Stripped the insulation back just a few mm and the solid wires slipped perfectly into the entry of each port and had a nice secure feel when you closed the orange lever down. Tugging on them a little bit there was no coming lose. I felt confident of my wiring. Had lots of room to then fold things up and push them back into the switchbox without fear of wires coming lose. This product worked so well I went out and made a second purchase of these for my other home. A great product to have in your toolbox at a great price.
