Once the wire is inserted into the connector, the Wago clamp secures the conductor and encloses its insulation. This guarantees that the conductor does not come into contact with any live parts, which in turn invreases safety.

The cage clamp can eliminate copper conductors that are fine-stranded, stranded, or solid. Power tools are unnecessary to use this clamp, because it requires only three simple steps:

The Power Cage Clamp can terminate copper conductors that are solid, fine-stranded, or stranded. You can operate this clamp with or without a tool. To perate this clamp with a tool you will need an Allen wrench. If you'd prefer not to use a tool, then you can simply press the latch that opens the clamp. Once open, insert the conductor, and close the clamp.

Push Wire Clamp

The Push Wire Clamp is ideal for terminating solid copper conductors. This tool-free clamp is easy to use and only requires pushing the conductor into the connector for installation.

Implementing these clamps make for reuseable connectors. Cut down on your installation time and cost by checking out our Wago connectors!
