Try twisting wires with this handy tool
When you have multiple or heavy-gauge wires to join, twisting on wire connectors by hand can be a real bear, even when they have wings on them. Several manufacturers have tools that make the job easier, but we especially like this one from Ideal Industries. Ideal creates a recess in the handle of several of its screwdrivers, conduit reamers and other tools. You just insert the wire connector into the star-shaped recess as shown; the recess and the tool’s large rubber grip make twisting wires much easier. You can find these tools for about $6 and up in home centers and online.
