    Q:using 12 gauge wire how many will it accept?2 wires? 3wires? 4wires?

    Answer This Question

    A:  One to three number 12 wires

    by|Aug 28, 2019

    A:  This specific wire nut is designed to hold a maximum of three (3) #12 AWG wires. If you need to connect more in the same bundle, move up to a larger wing nut. Always throw the breaker first and then tape the wing nut to the wires after you make the connection to hold the nut in place for years.

    A:  Gary yes 3 #12AWG wires. Ron at ron.kipper@idealindustries.com

    by|May 3, 2023

      A:  This product will accept 3 12 gauge wires.

      by|May 3, 2023

        A:  The package's wire combination chart shows you can connect: Two 12 gauge wires with 2 18 gauge wires OR Two 12 gauge wires with 1 16 gauge wire. More will fit into the wire connector but are not recommended.

        by|Aug 27, 2019

        A:  Yes, the yellow body Wing-Nuts an handle up to 3 #12 wires. If you need more #12 gauge wires to connect, then you should move up to the larger, red body Wing-Nut electrical connectors.

        by|Aug 24, 2019

        A:  3 - 12 awg will fit and these wings are rated for that but I have a tendency to use the next size, RED for 3-#12s.

        by|Aug 30, 2019

        A:  3 12awg wires

        by|Aug 24, 2019

        A:  It will accept 3 #12s. Ideal tans are great to have when you need a few more. But the Ideal yellows are great for most residential and light commercial. Hope this helps!

        These yellow wing-nut wire connectors,standard package is 2 bags only recieved 1 bag. Anyone can never have enough of these always come in handy when doing wiring. We are always looking for these laying around to use for our wiring projects. My husband uses these wire nuts all the time either for his solar panels or working with wiring around the house. Very easy to use with easy directions to use them. Always great to have these on hand when you need them.

        Ideal 451 Yellow Wing-Nut Wire Connectors (100 per Bag, Standard Package is 2 Bags). These wire nuts will work with #18 to #10 AWG copper conductors, I mainly use them on home and garage wiring and I usually use #10 or #12 wires depending on the load. The wire nuts tighten snugly with a strong inner spring and the wings improve the grip when turning to tighten on the wires.

        IDEAL makes a wide range of wire and wingnuts for the electrical industry. I have personally been using IDEAL products for over 30 years. The manufacturer says these yellow #451 wingnuts will connect wire sizes from a minimum of 2-#18 to a max of 3-#12 and various combinations of the sizes in between. To be honest I never use them for 3-#12 but prefer to used the next size - RED - for 3-#12s. Similarly, I tend to use smaller orange wirenuts for #18 wires. They are rated to 600v max for general wiring and 1000v when used within signs and fixtures - presumably for the high starting voltages found in fluorescent ballasts and HID fixtures. The yellow shell is flame retardant rated at 221F. They can be used on both solid and stranded wires. I like the wing nuts over wire nuts because they have longer skirts to protect from flashover but mostly because they are easier to tighten securely. The are made in USA.

        Ideal wing nuts are top notch wire nuts. The 451 is my personal favorite because it covers such a wide range of wire combinations, actually about 95 percent of my needs. The advantages go well beyond the range of combinations and include ease of use and effectiveness of the connection in the nut. The wings provide a good grip that allows use without having to twist the wires. While I normally do, a simple test shows it is not necessary. Make a connection without pre-twisting then unscrew the nut and examine the connection. You will find the wires in good contact and threads cut uniformly spaced along the outside of the wires where they have been locked in place. Another plus to using these nuts is that they are compact and help to reduce crowding in electrical boxes.

        As a DIY, I do a fair amount of electrical work relocating outlets, replacing switches etc. I prefer these wire nuts for their tenacious grip on copper wire and the ease of grasping the wings to screw wire cable together. Obviously as others who have commented have stated, it’s important to use pair the wire-nut with the proper wire gauge and number of wires, but it’s just as important not to leave any copper cable exposed after the wire-nut is attached (see pictures). This is a good product, well designed and well made – and the bag is resealable, meaning you’re less likely to spill them. I would recommend this to others.

        When choosing a wire connector, look for the features that make them more useful, such as a zip lock recloseable bag. Internet #203734802 Model # 30-451P Ideal 451 Yellow Wing-Nut Wire Connectors (100 per Bag, Standard Package is 2 Bags) I have used both the wing-nut connector and the straight barrel connector. I prefer the wing-nut because it give me more twisting power for a more secure connection. Another feature is the deep skirt which helps stripped wires and turned-back strands. The Zip lock top of bag allows you to close it after cutting the top off, keeping the connectors from scattering all over the place. See photo. Two things to think about: (1) Even though twisting of the wires prior to installing the connector is not required, I do it because I think it gives maximum contact and superior hold. (2) When pairing solid copper wire with multi-strand copper wire, I insert the multi-strand first and then the solid wire. That is to make sure the multi-strand wire will be fully engaged by the connector. Because these are reusable I can quickly change a circuit or make additions without wasting connectors. They say it works with a wide range of wire types and size. Below is a chart showing what it can be used for. Look at the photo of the package with the chart of the number of wires that can be connected.

        The Ideal Wing-Nut®, is registered trademark of Ideal Industries, (30-451P package of 100,) is an excellent way to quickly and safely connect several electrical wires together in an electrical circuit. The coded yellow body Wing-Nut® is designed to connect a minimum of 2 #18 wires to a maximum 3 #12 AWG (American Wire Gauge). The high temperature thermoplastic cone shaped plastic body contains an internal expanding square metal spring mechanism to securely grip the wires for a tight physical connection as well as to maintain excellent electrical connectivity. These wire connectors, with the wing profile which give additional connection torque, should be used in an indoor setting to connect solid or stranded copper to copper (CU/CU) wire combinations. They are made in the USA and it is UL Listed (Underwriters Laboratory) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association) tested for electrical safety.

        Superb wire nuts in a large 100 count package, that also reseals so you don't make a mess when the bag falls. Bright yellow for easy identification. This will hold a minimum of two 18awg wires or up to three 12awg wires. Very versatile due to the internal spring type connector. Having one wire nut for most installs is really handy and this package allows you to do that. The large wings/tabs make for easy tightening even with gloves on. It also makes them easier to remove for rework if needed. I have to say the re-closable package is something you didn't think you needed untl the bag falls off the ladder. A nice versatile supply that should be in every electricians tool box. Highly recommended.

        This review is for the IDEAL yellow wing nut, quantity of 100 in a bag, model # 30-451P. Being a home owner who fixes 99% of the things that can go wrong with owning a home, wiring is one of the things that commonly comes up in repairs. I have used this style of wire or wing nuts for years and they have always proven to make a strong connection between two + wires. I used two this afternoon in securing 120v wires that run through my home to an upstairs box. These are well made wire nuts and I like the wing on each side that gives me more leverage in ensuring a tight connection. The wire retaining twister is strong and will provide years of service. This specific wing nut will connect 2 #18 gauge wires up to 3 #12 gauge wires. Always use the proper size wire nut. Always throw the breaker first and tape each connector to the wires to ensure they stay in place. This is a great product Made in the USA and I highly recommend this product from a very well known American manufacturing company.

        We do residential, industrial, and commercial electrical. Ideal is our go to brand for all common wire nut sizes. For the most part we use grey/tan for residential and light commercial/office use. The "Twister" red and yellows are amazing for slightly larger wire. However these yellows are nice when you only need to connect up to three #12 wires or a few #14's. They take up less space in the box, which is always an issue in residential wiring especially. Also, they pull the wires in instead of pushing one conductor out. Anyone who has done much wiring will appreciate that. These yellows just have a better contour where the spring pulls the wires in. Also these are rated up to 600 volts. Do yourself a favor and don't buy off brand wire nuts. Use IDEAL. I promise there's a difference. Also..Made in the USA!
