Is the Screwless Terminal Block suitable for stranded wire?

I was wondering if the 6-Pin Screwless Terminal Block, 0.2″ Pitch (Top Entry) is suitable for stranded wire (24AWG)?


Hello, John.

As mentioned on the screwless terminal block product page, they are designed to grip the stripped ends of inserted 22 – 16 AWG wires. I tried one here with some stranded 24 AWG wire, and while I was able to get it to grip, I was also able to pull it out with a little bit of force.
