    I've had no issues with them, used the top one mainly to add a receptacle for a TV to an existing circuit.

    I previously asked about where to use these

    I believe I will just avoid them now

    I've never used the saddle or tap style one.. any tips or tricks with it?

    For the above poster, they are used to splice NM cable in walls without a junction box. Like any other connector, they have their uses ..
    Electricians do it until it Hertz!

    Only that the feed-through cable needs to be bent to match the change in level. With all of them, bending the conductors to the correct shape is a must.
