Yes, this works with the wire that is connected to the transformer. It will work with any gauge of low voltage wire.
Clueless, so long as you remove power to the system there’s.no reason to unplug the individual lights.
These connectors don't hook up in series. Series means the power goes through one and then on the next and so forth. If one light goes out, they all go out - like Christmas tree lights. These are hooked up in parallel. Parallel means they connect independently across the two wires. You can hook up as many in parallel as the total power required for the bulbs as the power transformer can deliver. Let's say the wattage of the 7 lights are 20 watts each. 7 times 20 watts equals 140 watts. That means the power transformer should be able to deliver AT LEAST 175 to 200 watts. You don't want to operate the transformer at it's max power continuously.
This part splices two wires. Think of this as a train track. You can certainly use to splice off a branch line of two wires.
Horrible product. Caused a great deal of re-work.
It's a terrible design. My experience is that they lose their connection after a while. Go to Lowe's. The connectors they have are very easy to use and always connect.
You unscrew the knob and place one low voltage cable in one side of the connector and the other cable to join, in the other side. Make sure that the cable is in the slot vertically. The low voltage cable is made up of two conductors, the cable splice connector pins have to pierce each conductor (one on the bottom and one on the top). Tighten the knob. If the light fixture connected to the spliced cable does not light, unscrew the knob and reposition the cables and retighten the knob.
yes i did use it that way
You can use as many as you need to splice wires together. It's the total wattage of the light bulbs you may use on the same wiring with respect to the converter you have on your output. if the converter has a maximum of 200 watts then all light bulbs' total sum of wattage should be equal or less than 200 watts.
