Default Wire Reducing Pin/Adapter

Some time ago someone posted pictures and links for wire reducing pins. They also posted one for a neutral termination of larger wire than would fit into the neutral terminals.
Set screw is what I am looking for.
Pictures or links appreciated.

You have this kind that has fingers that will fit into a couple of neutral spots:

Then this kind that will screw to the top fo the neutral bar:

But you have to find ones that will work with your particular brand/model. hat are you looking to do and on which panel?

Thanks Hax. The first link for the neutral is what I am looking for.
The second link is not.

Lets say you have to land 4/0 on a 100 amp breaker for VD. They make an adapter/pin for this. I cannot find a picture or link.

Thanks again.

I can't remember if I've seen the pin terminals with a set screw.

You may have already thought of this, but you can find a set screw barrel / butt connector that fits both wires, put the big wire in one side, and put a pigtail of the smaller wire in the other.

Burndy makes some.

With pin adapters the range will be somewhat limited
