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.

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.

Received the 72B BLUE WIRE-NUT WIRE CONNECTORS about two months ago and have used them on several jobs and they have held up to my expectation. First time I used them was when my son in law and I rewired his garage (we used orange wire nuts too) by using the right tools and equipment, it does not take long to knock a job out pretty quick. I would recommend this product.

With it's coiled spring inside the nut results in a very tight connection between multiply wires , The 72B wire nut will connect 2 #22 together or connect 3 #16 wires securely . The blue color of the nut is a way to easily identify the size and number of wires it can connect.

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.

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.
