kleinhuis connector ??

Anyone know whether/how these kind of wire connectors can open or release so the wires inserted into them can just be pulled out, and then reconnected afterward re-using the connector again? They are a Kleinhuis brand connector.

Is there some trick to it or or these things just not made to un-connect and have to be cut off? thanks

They are similar to the Ideal push in connectors. You can get the wire out by twisting back and forth on the connector while pulling on the wire.
I believe the manufacture does not recommend reusing the connector.

I am having no luck at all trying to twist the things back and forth. They are hard little blocks and don't seem to even begin to "twist". Are you sure there's not some other way to get these things off?

Looks like they can be pried open. Look at the slot just above the orange wire.
