The 72 be blue wire connectors are very easy to use when installing small wires like thermostat wires or control wiring. The 72 be blue wire connectors can handle number 16 wire number 18 wire number 22 wire and smaller. This is something that HV ac service technicians should have on hand when they are out in the field because this is a necessity of combining wires together and making sure you have good connections.

There are a lot of different ways to connect wires these days, but I still like the Wire-Nut connectors because I just get a better feel that the wires are making a good connection and I had two projects that took a smaller Wire-Nut. So these IDEAL 72b blue Wire-Nut connectors were perfect for my decks low voltage LED lighting and for my speaker wires up in the attic, so easy to twist on and just the right size for smaller wires, It made connecting all the cuts I had to make very easy and I used a lot less black electric tape than I use to and this bag of 100 Wire-Nuts will go a long way in many wire projects around the house !! Different sizes are available in different colors for whatever wiring project you have and directions are on the bag with a wire Guide so you get just the right Wire-nut connector to do the job !!

Wire-nuts provide provide a convenient way to connect household electrical wires inside a electrical work boxes. The packaging includes clear instructions on how many wires of particular thickness can be connected and the length to strip each wire of its insulation. These blue connectors can be used for a minimum of two number 22 wires and a maximum of three number 16 wires. The packaging has a table of allowed numbers of wires of each gauge. The wires can be twisted together before screwing on the connector. It is convenient to have the table as part of the packaging, and I always keep my connectors in the original packaging for that reason.

Coils remain intact within shells. Knurling provides useful grip, despite the small size of these #16 to #22 connectors. These are not wing-tip connectors - and that is desirable in the limited space often allowed for these small gauge conductors. Good taper / lead-in. Adapts quickly to properly prepared stranded and solid wires. Especially good for open, temporary, or experimental circuits where changes are anticipated and, later, crimp connectors may be used.

The specifications state that these connectors can handle a minimum of two 22 gauge wires and a maximum of three 16 gauge wires. The specifications also state that these connectors are flame retardant up to 221 degrees fahrenheit. The shell of these connectors is ridged to make it easier to turn them. 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.

I'm a DIY'er and I don't use many of these, but the first thing that I noticed was how light weight these are compared to my older ones. The plastic used in the manufacturing of these, like many products these days, seems very light weight and you wonder if they are of the same quality as older ones I have used in the past. Maybe it's my imagination, but it seems that these are of lesser quality than past wire-nut connectors I have used.
