IDEAL Twister PRO™ Wire Connector Offers Electricians the Industry's Widest Red/Yellow Range

Upgraded connection range means increased versatility and reduced inventory needs

SYCAMORE, IL, August 26, 2009 –

IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., a leading supplier of tools and supplies to professional electricians, today released its newest Twister® PRO wire connector offering the industry's widest red/yellow wire range.

The new Twister® PRO design upgrades the existing wire range to cover a minimum of two #18 AWG wires to a maximum of four #10 AWG wires. Besides simplifying the selection of the right wire connector, the Twister® PRO also reduces inventory expense as well as space inside the electrician's tool bag by handling the work of several standard connectors all by itself.

The Twister® PRO is the perfect solution for electricians who require a versatile, comfortable connector. Compared to standard wire connectors, the Twister® PRO places far less pressure on the thumb and forefinger, plus provides a better grip for improved leverage and more torque, especially with larger wire connections. The key is its patented SureGrip™ overmolding wrapped around its shell's swept wings. Molded vertical grooves in the overmolding contribute to faster connections on a wider range of wire combinations.

Like all IDEAL products, safety is engineered into the Twister® PRO. Contributing to the connector's safety advantage is a deep skirt that helps prevent flash-over events, while also reducing the number of turned-back strands for maximum dielectric protection. An expanding square-wire spring bites into conductors for solid, secure connections every time. The shell is fabricated from tough, UL 94V-2 flame-retardant thermoplastic rated at 105°.

IDEAL Twister® PRO wire connectors are available in boxes of 50 (#30-144); jars of 250 (#30-244J) or 500 (#30-644J); bags of 250 (#30-644); and a barrel of 20,000 (#30-944).
