IDEAL Introduces New Line of Term-a-Nut® Grounding Connectors

CHICAGO, IL, October 6, 2002 (NECA SHOW BOOTH 701) – IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. has extended its Term-a-Nut® family of connectors to include an extensive new line of grounding products designed to simplify and improve everyday grounding tasks, while also helping electricians nationwide meet strict local code requirements.

Made up of five unique designs, Term-a-Nut grounding products address specific requirements for grounding steel outlet boxes, enclosures, electrical devices and wiring multiple devices. Solid and stranded 6-inch pigtail lead wires are convenient for stranded device grounding applications. Design features include heavy duty, solid brass terminals, unique thread-forming ground screws with combination hex, phillips and slotted heads, and ultra flexible leads on all stranded wire products.

Customers can specify IDEAL Term-a-Nut grounding connectors that have a pigtail with a fork terminal; a pigtail with a ring and ground screw; or the grounding “Combo” that has a pigtail with a ring and ground screw, combined with a jumper and a fork terminal. The green, Term-a-Nut Wire Connectors meet UL467 and CSA C22.2 #41 standards for grounding applications.

The Term-a-nut connector design allows for fast, hassle-free installations that do not require crimping or the use of tools. Moreover, Term-a-Nut connectors can be easily removed for changes and for repeat usage.

In addition to the grounding connector products, several grounding jumper tails are being added to the Term-a-Nut® line. These jumpers are available with a 6.5-inch, 12AWG or 14AWG, insulated solid wire that is pre-stripped on one end, and a ground screw on the other end. There is also an 8-inch, 12AWG, insulated stranded wire version with a fork terminal on one end and a ring with ground screw on the other end.
