How do I use a wire nut?

Introduction to Wire Nuts

Those little multi-coloured caps that come in the box with Mysa are called Wire Nuts. You use them to connect 2 or more wires together. But you can’t just toss them on top of already twisted wires - there’s a safe and correct way to do it!

Connecting Wires

  • Start by holding the two wires together so that the copper ends are parallel.
  • Together, slip them into the Wire Nut.
  • Now, turn the Wire Nut clockwise until it feels secure.
  • Give the wires a gentle tug. And if you detect any movement or slippage whatsoever, untwist and start the process over.

Tips

If you have pliers, great! You can use them to pre-twist the wires before inserting them into the Wire Nut or straighten bent or curved wires.
