I used to see and use these for romex all the time when I started in the trade ('90 to around '95) but haven't seen one in years.







Anyone else remember these? Any one remember what the actual name for these was?

I have seen them in 2 buildings, 1- a office building built in the mid 60's and another in a house in Sacramento,Ca built in 1991.
Yeh, these romex crush connectors are real common in both West Coast resi and commercial past construction and are a real pain in remodel when replacing a circuit. I believe they are not allowed in new construction nowadays. :) rbj

The newer plastic bushings with strain reliefs seem to have taken over for a lot quicker install time over the screw romex clamps. I still use the romex clamps on cans or other romex in-wall loops only. rbj
