Questions & Answers

Is the minimum gauge for AL really 12? Household wiring is 14 gauge. Does the connector support #14 AL wire?

Asked by: LittleDrummerBoy
Little known fact, 12 gauge aluminum is equivalent to 14 gauge copper. So no this connector does not support 14 gauge al wire but you also don't have that in your walls guaranteed. In fact 14 gauge aluminum is too small to even be rated to carry any load.

Copper pigtails for these

Any recommendations for a specific product to use as the copper pigtails for these connectors?
Asked by: askrik
any 14 gauge or 12 gauge copper wire. just buy some in wall wire and cut it. (14 gauge for 15 amp circuits 12 gauge for 20 amp circuits)

How do I fit the 2 or 3 port connector into an existing wall outlet box? It is already crowded in there. Does Kingston or a competitor make a smaller unit?
Asked by: Heraldic1
Hi Heraldic1- If you are having trouble fitting the AlumiConn connectors into the junction box, you could consider replacing with a deeper junction box. The AlumiConn lug-style connector is the only wire connector on the market approved by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and Insurance Companies as a permanent solution for aluminum wiring. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at customerservice@kinginnovation.com

Asked by: Roger
These connectors come with inhibitor pre-applied to each port - no additional inhibitor is required.

3-Port Al/Cu Wire Connectors (10-Pack) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent!! I used these to upgrade my aluminum wired house as my research showed that they are the safest connector to use. Install was simple, and i have had absolutely no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only safe DIY option for aluminum wire remediation There are only two products approved by the Consumer Products Safety Commission for safe remediation of aluminum branch wiring, and I chose this product because Alumiconn is one of them. Alumiconn connectors are the only option that homeowners can install themselves. The product is easy to install and a little larger than a wire nut. I have installed many of these throughout my home, and have had no issues with them. You simply strip back the insulation 5/16", insert the wire into the connector and tighten the screw to the recommended torque. I also purchased a torque screwdriver to make sure that I installed them correctly. You will need a minimum of 2 connectors for each outlet, and a minimum of 3 for each switch. If you also need to put these on aluminum ground wires in the box or on 3-way switches, you may need as many as 4 or 5 in a box. Fitting 4 connectors in a box is difficult, but can be done by careful routing and packing of the wires. If there is not enough room, installing a larger remodeling box is not that difficult. One of the other reviews here said to use Ideal In-Sure connectors if you don't have enough room for Alumiconn. Ideal Industries clearly states that In-Sure connectors are not to be used with aluminum wire. Alumiconn connectors are the only safe option. Using In-Sure connectors may increase the chance of a house fire.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is the best and only alternative to having a professional fix aluminum wiring dangers I have done a lot of research on the topic of aluminum wiring in homes and it turns out it is a very big potential fire danger. Many insurance companies will specifically not insure homes with aluminum wiring so if you have it ask if they do because you can potentially be left in a situation that they would not cover. The only other repair method for pig tailing copper wire to aluminum is called copalum which can only be performed by an electrician certified by the manufacturer. The special crimp tool for it is only leased and is quite expensive so the electrician that can do this repair method is quite expensive as well. The benefit to it is that it's a small cold weld crimp which is heat shrink wrapped so it fits inside existing electrical boxes easily. Alumiconn by comparison is a more do it yourself method. Basically it's a small three place bus bar which separates dissimilar metals so they can be electrically connected together in a safe manner. The manufacturer claims zero fires with this repair method. It has also carried both UL and US consumer product safety commission approval. Installation is straight forward. You remove a switch, outlet etc., clip the end of the aluminum wire off and strip some fresh material, insert in to one port and tighten the screw. Insert a small piece of copper wire in to another port and tighten, connect it to the device. If there is an out going wire it goes to the remaining port. The alumiconn connectors are only a little larger than a wire nut, but the entrance method does add some size and fitting three in to a standard box can be a challenge, but it doable. I had areas where there were seven wires joined in to one large wire nut. This type of connection requires the box to be cut out from the wall and a larger old work box to be installed in its place. This type of junction required eight alumiconn's to be used. Price wise these do add up quickly. As mentioned three are needed per box at least, possibly more. Still, it's cheaper than copalum and cheaper than a re-wire. There is a list on the manufacturers web site with a list of insurance companies which recognize alumiconn as a repair method so it theoretically is possible to get a discount on home owners insurance. I will say that it would have been nice if these were carried in stores, they are very difficult to come by, but ordering from the Home Depot's web site is easy and they can be returned unlike other sites which sell this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The do-it-yourselfer solution to mitigating aluminum wiring risks My family moved in to a 1968 home about 6 months ago. Within the first month, we experienced two separate electrical issues, one of which was an outlet that was audibly and visibly arcing due to a loose wire connection. Concerned for my family's safety, I immediately began reading up on aluminum wiring. Not being at all experienced with electrical work, I then bought the Black & Decker Complete Guide to Electrical Wiring. Having read that cover to cover, I bought my first batch of Alumiconns, along with the reasonably priced Neiko torque screwdriver, and new receptacles and cover plates while I was at it (hey, they're cheap, and my time is valuable). My house is just over 2000 square feet, and after going top to bottom, I determined that I have about 120 electrical devices (receptacles, switches, and light fixtures). Doing the math, that's a pretty hefty investment in Alumiconns, but I consider it worth it for my family's safety. Doing the work a little at a time on the weekends, and having started about 45 days ago, I'm probably about halfway done now, maybe a bit further. Here's what I've learned: Yes, the Alumiconns are big, but if you make a point of bending both the existing and new wires in V's, you can stuff the Alumiconns pretty far back in the box. If you have more than 3 existing connections in a box, you can save space and money by using the Ideal Insure connectors for the Aluminum wires, then run an aluminum pigtail to the Alumiconn, and run copper to the device from there. The Insure connectors are TINY, taking up very little space. Technically not rated for aluminum connections, but neither are the wire nuts that were on there before, and the bigger concern is where the aluminum meets the copper devices, not where the aluminum meets additional aluminum. I've only run into this situation twice thus far, so not a common occurrence in my house at least. If necessary for space purposes, a remodeling box is surprisingly easy to install in finished drywall. You can achieve much greater efficiency by first cutting and stripping a whole bunch of 6" pigtails, and then just carrying them around in a bag with you. Having done that, I can do a receptacle or switch in under 15 minutes, and a light fixture/fan, depending on complexity, in 30-45 minutes. Tools like the Irwin Industrial self-adjusting Wire Strippers go a LONG way toward making wire stripping much easier. For the minimal additional cost, you might as well go ahead and replace the devices and cover plates while you're at it. I went with the newer TR style receptacles, as I have a toddler and another one on the way. If you're going to be putting in the time to take down a light fixture and put it back up again, are you happy with it? If not, now would be a great time to replace it. I hope this helps!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wire COnnectors This product is one of only a few listed al/cu connectors. It also does cu/cu, and al/al. I don't know why they have to be so rediculously expensive, but given the cost of an electrician, they are a small percentage of the total project cost. I'm a licensed electrician and have a couple clients with electric heat and aluminum building wiring. When the old connections fail, it's almost always because of poor workmanship, not the old connectors, but these are trying to legislate against incompetence. They reqauire a torque screwdriver for proper application, but have an alternate method of torquing that doesn't reqauire a calibrated screwdriver. Theypre quite bulky and make a single gang box very tight. I use the calibrated screwdriver. KUDOS to Home Depot for having these on line. The product is great, the cost rediculous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A less expensive option than rewiring the house I started with a small order of these and ended up with the 100 count bag. They worked and are one of the only options for pig tailing aluminum house wire to copper only switches and plugs. I purchased a home in which all switches and plugs had cu or copper only stamped on them. The aluminum house wire was connected to these. (Fire Hazard). After much investigation I found out that you should install copper pig tails because most commonly found switches and plugs are copper only. This product is approved for aluminum (AL) to Copper (CU) connections. The wire connectors have anti corrosion gel in them to prevent the aluminum wire from corroding. The only issue I encountered was that the screw terminals were a little soft, make sure you use the right size screwdriver. Also they recommend using a torque screwdriver. The larger bag had optional instructions if you didn't have a torque driver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repair aluminum circuits with confidence My 1964 house still has several circuits of aluminum wire. I had real concerns about wiring modifications needed for a current remodeling product, and read all of the precautions about mixing aluminum and copper wire. I was pleasantly surprised to find this product. In my opinion, this IS THE ONLY WAY TO MIX ALUMINUM AND COPPER WIRE! Installation is simple, and the connector takes up no more room than a wire nut.
