Square D Qwik-Grip?

I'm Putting a sub panel in my new garage. I see Square D has the qwik grip for clamping wires in to panel. Has anyone used this system and do you like it? Looks handy but looks are deceiving sometimes

I've seen them but have not used them. I'm pretty happy with knockouts and my own connectors.

We'll have to see what the others have to say.

I just saw these in the store. Looks interesting and I really like their plug on neutral system. However we do not do very much residential so I am not too sure when I will ever try one.

All the pictures show what looks like 14/2, 12/2, and 10/2 cables which are flat. Doesn't look like a round /3 would fit.

That's what I was thinking. As long as there are knock outs for round wire. I think I'll give oneoof these panels a try.

Just received an email from the manufacturer. Looks like 10/3 is the biggest wire. Here is the link for the info:
