Your reason?I will use those back stab connectors that the manufacturer supplies with their light fixtures but I can't get myself to use them for pig tails in receptacle and switch boxes etc.
Back stab refers to a connection hole in the back of a device such as a receptacle or switch. We are talking about a wire connector, which is not a back stab.I will use those back stab connectors that the manufacturer supplies with their light fixtures but I can't get myself to use them for pig tails in receptacle and switch boxes etc.
I don't have issues with splicing solid and stranded wires together.
IMO, not a backstab at least a "secure" backstab is we can call it that. And trust me, I'd give a whole lot to this world to see backstabbed outlets and mobile home bite dings outlawed.Listen, I try not to write novels on these posts.
When I first saw them in light fixtures I would cut them off and throw them away.
If I were to install a string (long series)of light fixtures in a commercial or residence that I thought would be a burden on that more inferior connection I would cut them off and wire it them. If is just 6-10 I'll take my chances.
I figure the fault will be easier to find on the load side of the switch.
Well I guess you'll have to define the front back left and right sides for me. When I make the connections I face the the "tip, front" what ever you want to call it away from me there for I calls it a "back-stab"
These are my opinions. Thanks for listening
