Known about them for a couple of years, never used them till a couple of weeks ago, had to use some tonight, just wanted to say I really like them, just ordered some more 3 & 5 lever ones (I don't like the just push in ones)

I prefer lever ones although push in one are re useable to remove wire you twist and pull great connectors toolstation and screwfix well wago and similar brand connectors, so much quicker and neater junction boxes can be done quick and neatly

I wondered what Wago connectors were. I did not realise they were a clamp system and this must be a lot easier than messing around with tiny screws in conventional connectors. I will buy a few of those to keep handy. As you know I am not the greatest at sparks. :lol:

There excellent just ensure enough wire is stripped before inserting

Although most of these are push in you can reuse and release wire.

Well, I have mentioned them, but until recently I had never used them. and this post is just saying how good i think they are. (Just had some more arrive today)

Looks like dewaltdisney did not know either.

You are right :lol:

I had seen mention of them but I did not realise that they were clip connectors. What a brilliant idea.

In 1980 went to work in Algeria for a Dutch company, not called Wago but were the same things. Back then they did not have release levers, next time was on some German equipment as part of the DIN rail mounted terminals you had to push the terminal screwdriver into the square hole and wire into round hole seem to remember around 1995 and then after that more and more equipment built on a steel girder frame work started to use these. The main advantage was low maintenance as you didn't need to go around on a regular basis tightening up terminals, or find wire necked off when they were over tightened on a regular basis.

They were mainly used for control cables and were stranded cables were used you also needed bootlace ferrules which were used anyway to keep the cable number in place.

Why they were slow to hit the domestic market I can only guess at, I suspect because vibration was a massive problem with steel framed machines, but houses tend to be made of bricks and wood so don't vibrate the same.
