Connectors for Landscape Lighting

There are tons of product on the market for making low voltage wire connections and I use different models depending on the job - large or small. The point of showing this particular connector is to show what a typical connector will look like. For low voltage wiring connections, it is critical to use a corrosion proof connector for your copper wiring.
Electrical tape is not waterproof or corrosion proof - and it will fail as some point. What you want is a connector that will not let water in or allow water to sit and corrode the wire. These pre-filled connectors work very well but again this is just one version. Other connectors use caps and plugs and so on but this particular one is simple, easy and great for small residential jobs.
Hope this helps - LaGina
