- Is pretwisting conductors required when using wirenuts?
But pre-twisters and post-twisters are all welcome here.
I am inclined to agree, but the two issues I have with nut twisting are:To me, it doesn't matter what the joint is like with the wire-nut removed.
You could say the same thing about split-bolt joints.
lazy, not easy..... the two issues I have with nut twisting are:
1. It's easy to not wire-nut-twist enough. I see that a lot. Granted that is sort of installer error, but twisting with linesman's seems more "black and white" to me.
that's user error. If none of the conductors are leading or trailing, a wire nut grabs all of them that it's rated for2. Similar to #1, The inspection issue. Sometimes one conductor doesn't get grabbed by the nut and gets pushed out. And you can't tell.
