Can this handle 18 -18 guage wires?

I'm building a chandelier that will have 17 mason jars and I need a connector big enough to cover all of the wires.
Asked by: MOB
I have not tried to use them on 18 gauge wires. the min. is (3) 12 gauge wires. The problem may be in attempting to keep that many wires evenly connected. Trying to place that many wires in the twist connection at the same time is that you will almost always have some of them slip out during the installation process. I personally would not recommend trying to do so in one connection as you could get sparking and arcing and risk fire. If you have the space, I would recommend using a smaller wire nut and using more of them and jumper between each connector. Another option would be to connect (2-3) 18 gauge to a 12 gauge wire and connect them in series so that you end up with just one 12 gauge wire going to your final connection, however, I do not know your design and this may not be a good solution for your design. You may want to check local building code for how many wires are allowed in one connection.

Will this work for a single #2AWG aluminum service wire.

Will this work for a single #2AWG aluminum service wire.
Asked by: Mapal
the package does not list anything larger than (1) 6 gauge plus (2) 8 gauge. If the diameter of your 2 gauge wire is smaller or equal to the above max connection then it would most likely accept the single wire, if you are just using it as a cap to cover a bare end wire, however, if you are actually connecting to a second wire as is the general purpose of these wire nuts, then I do not think it has a large enough opening. The package does not even allow for (2) 6 gauge wires.

They are larger in size which better accommodates the larger wire plus they have a higher rating which makes them unlikely to melt over time. I usually use them on wallovens, built in convection microwaves, and electric cooktops.

Ideal blue wing nut wire connectors are made well and will be valuable in certain conditions. If you are wiring a house you will use these for the AC or Heater connections, maybe the hot water heater, and any other heavy gauge wiring you have. But you will also use them to tie in multiple #14, or #12 in a switch box or junction box. The color of the connectors helps identify the wires that it can connect, and that info is also on the bags of the products when you buy it. There is a large list of combinations on this bag that vary from 2 or 3 #6 wires, to 5 or 6 #14 wires. In a switch box you tie in all the neutrals so having 5 or 6 #14's will happen more than you might think. So this 25 pack bag is great to have around since buying them in the 4 packs just don't make cents, and will cost you dollars.

These Blue Wing-Nut Wire Connectors will work well for some work, but they’re a bit big for most household jobs. I have some upcoming projects that will call for 8 gauge wire, though I shouldn’t need to make any wire to wire connections. However, they could be used for connecting multiple 10 or 12 gauge wires as well. When working with something requiring this size connector, the wings make it much easier to get a good, tight connection. Like other Ideal connectors, they will get the job done easily. My only complaint is the plastic bag. The zip works OK, but still a hassle to get them out. A correctly sized plastic jar, or even a cardboard box would be much better. My old standby peanut butter jars are just too big for these.

The blue wing-nut wire connectors have a wing that makes it easy to connect the wing nut and wires together. provides a easy grip for twisting the connector on. I love the information on the packaging which allows me to see which wires I can use this for. I'm there helping and watching the process of re-wiring and the information allows me to purchase the right supplies and learn how to wire. These wing wire nut connectors can use a minimum of 3- #12 wires ( 12 is residential (house) Max.of wires; 1-#6 with 2--#8 , which is used for appliances like stoves, dryers, etc.- 3 prong plugs.

These connectors are fairly large and the specifications state they can handle a minimum of three 12 gauge wires and a maximum of one 6 gauge wires or two 8 gauge wires. These connectors are a “wing nut” design which makes them easy to turn and gives you extra torque when turning them. The specifications also state that these connectors can handle up to 600 volts. There’s not much else I could say about these connectors but they seem to be a quality product and I’d recommend them for your electrical connections.
