Installation of a wire connector

To install wire connectors, you must:

  1. Insert the two wires into the wire nut so that their copper ends are parallel.
  2. Turn the wire connector clockwise until there is strong tension.
  3. Pull on the threads to make sure they are secure, leaving no gaps between them. * If the threads seem to come loose, repeat the process.

* Improperly installed electrical wires could burn the wire connectors.
