"wire nut"

I think it's 2 r's and 1 t, I've heard it used, but I don't know where it's from, definately not a local (for me, California) thing, sounds weird around here.

'Marrette' is a brand name for 'pressure type wire connectors'; 'Wire-nut' is another brand name.

IMHO one of the nifty products on the above linked page is the 'set screw wire connector', which has a brass insert with a set screw in the side. You push the wires into the insert, and tighten the screw to make the splice. You explicitly _do not_ twist the wires together, because this will interfere with the clamping. But once you've tightened everything up, you can inspect the splice from all sides to make sure that all of the wires are clamped. After you've made the splice, then you screw the insert into the plastic cover.
