can i connect 3 #14 aluminum and 1 #14 copper conductors with these connectors?

can i connect 3 #14 aluminum and 1 #14 copper conductors with these connectors?
Asked by: jerry
There were never any 14 AWG aluminum conductors manufactured or used so you definitely don't have #14 aluminum conductors. NOTE: #12 aluminum wiring was for 15 amp circuits and #10 aluminum circuits were for 20 amp circuits. Most likely you have tinned copper conductors, but with limited experience you don't know how to identify them and just assume they are aluminum. The U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warns against direct connection of aluminum and copper conductors with any twist-on connector. To connect aluminum to copper you should use the AlumiConn connectors which will connect the conductors without them coming in direct contact. Most Home Depot stores stock these connectors.

Are these twister connections approved by Underwriter Labs or the Consumer Product Safety Commission?

The consumer product safety commission specifically recommends against using twister connections when connecting aluminum and copper wire. Are these safe?
Asked by: Will
The Ideal purple #65 Twister aluminum to copper wire nuts are UL Listed for aluminum to copper wire, but not for aluminum to aluminum wire connections. They have an extremely high failure rate. They are not approved by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, no wire nut of any kind is approved by the CPSC for direct connecting aluminum wire to copper wire. I consider these wire nuts as a temporary use connector at best. The better permanent solution is to use an AlumiConn connector for connecting aluminum to aluminum or aluminum to copper wire.

Customer Reviews

Twister Al/Cu Wire Connectors, 65 - Purple (2 per Bag, Standard Package is 4 Bags) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for my project I was updating switches for a mobile home with aluminum electrical wiring and I needed a fix for any switch that might cause a concern with a fire threat. After doing some research, I found these connectors were recommended to splice a copper wire to an aluminum wire. I did not want to rewire the mobile home from aluminum wire to copper because of the expense. These connectors did the job much cheaper and in less time. The connectors made it difficult to fit the switch into the box, but after some patience and some adjustments with the placement of the nuts, wires, and switch the job was finished successfully.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better than nothing For alum wiring, better than reg connectors, but not better than screw type alumconn connectors. Some folks have trouble with these with copper and alum. Probably good for stranded wire such as installing a ceiling fan or outside light.
