from Didn't work well with 10 gauge wireUsed 8 these on 10 gauge THHN building wire with lots of difficulty. The connector didn't want to snap closed over such a large wire. The insulation displacing contact bent so far during use that it began to fail. The contact also moved out of alignment, causing it to not grab the mating connector as well as it should. It would probably work better with 12 gauge wire (as marked on the connector) or possibly with 10 gauge wire with a higher strand count.
