In-line twist on electrical wire connector
Publication number: US10109929B2
Application number: 15/682,419
An in-line wire connector has a connector body with two insert ends on opposing ends for receiving a first and a second wire into apertures. A truncated tapered coil is configured within the connector body to secure the first and second wires to the in-line wire connector. The in-line twist on wire connector connects wires in line and may be low profile to allow the wires and the wire connector to slide through apertures and tight spaces as it often required in construction and remodeling projects. An in-line wire connector may have two truncated tapered coils that taper toward the opposing ends. A first and second wire conductor extend past each other toward opposing insert ends to produce an overlap portion to create electrical contact between wires. When the connector body is rotated, the wires rotate about each other and are retained by the tapered coil.
