who told you backstabbing a receptacle was illegal?
Only #12 wire is banned...The push in connectors by wago require a spring to hold the conductor. It is my understanding that the wago type has more contact area then a backstabbed rec. My question is if backstabbing a rec is illegal why doesn't a push in connector pose the same safety issues.
Keep in mind, wagos installed in a fixture do not experience the movement created by plugging and unplugging cords into a back stabbed receptacle.invictus said:I loved using wagos for low voltage but see em in fixtures, from the factory, alot
wondered how they hold up to the test of time?
I've used wago's exclusively for a few years now. I love em.
