These do look awesome. I hate wire nuts, specially when you are trying to get more than two wires together.

I wonder how they hold up to vibration.

I've been using those push in connectors for the last 4-5 years or so in several house flips we've done. Whats nice about them is they don't loosen up like wire nuts will over time. They or their competitors can be bought in 2-3-4-5-6-7-8 slots on e-bay in quantities cheap. The only drawback being they are not good with stranded wire.

"The only drawback being they are not good with stranded wire"

Just put a little solder on the tips, then clamp that wire down, " then all is good"

Found a few of them push type connectors when replacing my hot water heater - - - - - but without levers - - - - naturally I did not reuse them .
I am kinda sorta almost nearly partial to the insulated crimp caps

We use these in our production, they work very well. Especially for connections that may need to be modified in the future. We use them for DC applications.

Stranded wire can be used if you put a good twist on the wires. Very small stranded wire can be tin dipped, but the manufacturer does not recommend this.

For AC applications we also use these: http://www.mcmaster.com/#electrical-...lices/=12zr2lu

I know we all use good common sense but Be careful. These work great for hooking up a low amp device, like a light. Not sure what the amp rating is on these but I would not use on a water heater or AC, or anything that pulls any substantial amps. You are depending on a spring tension to keep the connection tight. Contact area is limited. Movement and heat can affect these connections.
