Splice Connectors

have used that series in the house for 110 VAC wiring, but prefer twisting the wire + 3M wire nuts + tape.

in the trailer we like these for low voltage -

they come in multiple sizes from 10 to 22 gauge.

I just used them on a new fixture installation in my house because it came pre installed on the fixture. It made making connections super easy and the wire is removable if needed. I then went out and bought some for the trailer and my home. They take up less space than wire nuts and they are available for 2, 3, 4, etc. wire connections.

Not worth a darn in a vibrating trailer. The spring will work its way through the wire and lose contact.

Wire nuts are bad enough. I use only crimp connections made with a ratcheting tool. They stay put.

I had a few home fixtures with these in them. Tossed and used real wire nuts. I also never back wire outlets and switches. Wire goes under the screws...

Yep. Old fashioned but proven to work better.
