No, lever nuts shaped similar to the push-in type wagos or ideal in-sures but they have a lever to lock in each wire.

Thanks for sharing Splatz. I have not seen the 221 series Lever Nuts before. They are a pressure type connection so I guess they are much better than the stab in type.
This is what the manufacture said. "HTCELLE lever-nut connector housing is made of the best high quality PC insulating material. With the advantages of long life, corrosion resistance, high-temperature resistance and aging resistance, HTCELLE wire connector can effectively prevent electrical leakage. So the lever nuts are safer than traditional wire nuts."

I remember Shunk posted that a while back.

That is good if you are fabricating things and making up hundreds of connections per day.

IMO, I think that opening them too early could lead to a weaker spring. I try not to open mine until immediately before using it. I don't even like letting it sit there opened for 10 minutes, but that might just be my OCD

It’s all about safety. I’d hate to break a finger nail opening a lever nut.

You're more likely to nip your fingertip, or your lip. Those levers hurt pretty badly if they close on you.

I’ve never use my teeth to open them, but I do keep them in my mouth sometimes while dealing with the wires.
