Posted 2nd Jul

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Pull the lever up, insert a conductor and push the lever back down – done. WAGO's 221 Series Lever Connector has always connected solid, stranded and fine-stranded conductors easily, quickly and safely. Conductor cross-sections from 0.14 - 4mm²? No problem! But this connector is ready for more and can prove it: 221 Series now connects conductor cross-sections from 0.5 to 6mm² for greater versatility.

OK so very specialised, these things are really good at connecting wires …OK so very specialised, these things are really good at connecting wires very safely with minimum effort. It'll be interesting to see what we get in the sample case and how much junk in the mail box and therefore if it's worth it but as someone said just give a false address. Only useful to electricians, engineers or major diy'ers I suspect.


Oh my days, did you really just say give a false address?

Had free samples from Wago in the past. They takes months to arrive.
I can honestly say that I have absolutely no idea whatsoever.
On that basis I shall give heat for the most bewildering deal of the month.
Heat just for being wacky
Heat added. I haven't bothered because they want to pass on your details to third parties. I don't need more pointless emails and circulars through my letterbox!

IF your ever on Sparky's forums, there are lots of favourable mentions of these products, so, reckon TOP quality, and easy to use.
But, possibly not really meant for DIYers.
Good find ssc1, heat added..
These are great if you are doing some wiring, and need a maintenance free joint. But as always, seek advice if your not sure!

I was sort of bewildered too.
Love these products, no more fiddling trying to get multiple cables connected.
Love these too but I'm not agreeing to "happy for us to pass your information to third parties" just for a free sample

Email. Email address. Guessing you failed comprehension at school then.
Probably better for professionals to use stuff like this as diyers and amateurs may use it inappropriately and create an unsafe joint where it could become dangerous.

If even the the most basic of DIYer can't use these properly (lift lever, push in wire, release lever), then they shouldn't even be let loose with a hammer.

This is the sort of thing my great grandad would come out with.
Great connectors. To be used inside a box.
I've used these to continue house circuits in plug socket back boxes when painting rooms. Also used them for light fittings and my upstairs lighting circuit too. So easy to use and a godsend. Can get wiring done in junction boxes much neater and quicker.

They're cheap enough to get off ebay tbh.

It's not about how easy they are, it's about safe usage. I.e. Did they bare the wires to the correct length and not show bare copper outside, are they being used outside as they aren't rated for that.
Some people aren't good with this stuff and it shows.
It's good to put safety warning on the thread about this kind of thing.

Yes but your initial comment is utter rubbish. I'm not a professional and am an OK DIYer but these are perfect if not better for a DIYer than other more difficult methods of cable jointing. I.e probably producing much safer joints for the amateur or DIYer. Are you a professional electrician?

Apologies I know nothing about this, I'm just a lowly a electronics engineer(HND) by training.
Should know better than to provide good advice!.

If it's a legitimate site, they are unprofessional, as their Eshop page is not working and the contact image looks poorly designed. Could be just a site to gain your personal details. Disposable email addresses we could use, but you have to enter you real home address etc to receive the product.
I used these and twist ones in the States years ago, I am amazed that screw in connector blocks and jb's are still the standard here, these things are so much easier especially in confined spaces (which is generally where cables end up ) Great product !!
I also have a HND in electronics and there is no way I would give advice to my son who is a highly qualified electrician. They are two totally different fields IMO. He uses them, I only found out when I took down a couple of light fittings he had put up, far far better than the standard blocks that the average DIYer would use.

The two fields are closer than you think for most maintenance and service engineers tend to cover this. As for these devices, they are being used more often as they're quicker and time is money.

They are very good and well used and respected, even the Chinese have made clones.

Lol true i have seen house electrics with sellotape used to insulate wiring instead of heatshrink or proper electrical tape.
You cannot legislate for the majority of the sheeple peeple!
Lets be honest if they fry themselves the world will have lost another numpty - no big loss then!

Thanks for the info.. This connector range from Wago make connections a breeze.. They are a Godsend.
Stock up on a variety of these Wago connectors and the Quickwire connectors (different company product But Highly reccomended ) and it will make your life so much easier , doing lighting spurs, extra outlets ect.

Not to put a spanner in your works mate!...But if you plan on using this product outside . ? Then make sure it`s fitted in a IP outside rated junction Box (common sence really )They are perfectly fine to use if installed in the correct JB.

Heat just for being wacky


They're wacky but they sure do work. I use them for house rewiring.
Received my samples Today ...1 bags with a few 4mm 6mm connectors & 1 bag with mounting bracket and a few varieties of the 221 4mm ...Took just a month to arrive.
Thanks OP for the Heads up .

Best Regards,
Edited by: "kevann" 18th Aug
Mine arrived today, they look like something where on one of the few occasions a sample will lead me to buying them.....I can see these being very handy indeed as I need to rebuild the wiring loom in the car at some point soon.
Just got mine today. They look really nice and they gave me a few sets. Thanks OP
