low voltage danger?

i am installing some under cabinet lighting. it's low voltage. i'd like to use a terminal block. the onyl ones i can find at home depot are with "open" terminals. if i use the open kind, should i be concerned if someone reaches under the cabinet and touches the block? the guy at home depot said low voltage won't hurt you. is he right?

is there such a thing as a terminal block with a cover?

You can get insulated term-blocks at any good electrical supply.Most of them allow you to cut-down to the # of blocks you need {i.e a 10 block strip can be cu into 3 sections of 3 blocks ea.}Make certain you get the right size for the gauge wire you use.
