What is a push-in terminal wire block connector?

Human life has become much more manageable with the help of technology and innovation. Push-in connectors are a new type of connectors that makes wiring easier.

Just strip a minimal amount of insulation from the wire and attach it to the connector holes. When the wire is in the correct place; lock it. You can easily connect multiple electrical wiring connections in the connector.


Surprisingly, the push-in connector can also handle #12 gauge solid and other stranded wires.

What is the benefit of a push-in connector?

The push-in connector is fast, reliable, and easy to use. It is used to distribute the conductor in electrical housing applications. In addition to this, it provides a typical range of housing tension of up to 450 volts. However, the input depends upon the high flexibility and number of poles used.

How to release the wires from a push-in connector?


If you’ve ever been faced with a tangled and stuck wire, you’ve probably wondered how to release a push-in wire connector. Removing the wires from a push-in connector; is not a difficult task. However, it is a bit tricky. The connector has a small barb; and once the wire is inserted, the barb goes down.

The key is to push up the barb and take the wire out. Take a thin & round hollow tube with a handle; the tube should fit over the pin. Slide the pin into the hole from the front of the push-in connector; once it’s pushed, the barb will come on the upper side.
