    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.

    Open Splices of Class 2 Cct's

    I've been splicing class 2 circuits "open slices" for 38 years. But I really don't know where it says it's okay to do this in the NEC. This has been one of the longest searches I can recall, been to 725, 300 and have found nothing that says it is permitted. I've been teaching for the past 12 years and always tell students to find it in the NEC, but I'm definitely not seeing something!! HELP

    Hopefully one of you code experts can help point me to the right location in this code book to put my mind at rest - and to finish this report!!
    For temporary wiring with NM cable or cords a junction box is not required.

    590.4(G) Splices. On construction sites, a box shall not be required for splices or junction connections where the circuit
    conductors are multiconductor cord or cable assemblies, provided that the equipment grounding continuity is maintained with or without the box. See 110.14(B) and 400.9. A box, conduit body, or terminal fitting having a separately bushed hole for each conductor shall be used wherever a change is made to a conduit or tubing system or a metal-sheathed cable system.
