IDEAL Can-Twist Wire Connectors

January 26, 2023

There’s a reason Can-Twist are Canada’s most popular wire connector. For one, they were designed with feedback from real-world electricians to make them the most comfortable and reliable connectors on the market. But did you know that every time you purchase Can-Twist connectors in bulk you earn rewards from IDEAL?

Trusted by professional electricians for their quality and reliability, Can-Twist are the best choice for connecting wire from #22 to #8 AWG. They are manufactured using a copolymer material that allows the connector to expand for large wire combinations – up to 3 #10 AWG connectors!

These Made-in-Canada connectors also feature square cut springs that firmly grip wire and keep it in place, and an ergonomic, winged design. Can-Twist are easy to twist, and need only a few turns to achieve torque, so you can use them on large installations with less strain.

Barrel Rewards

IDEAL offers a unique program called Barrel Rewards. Every time you purchase a barrel of 25,000 Can-Twist connectors, or four ‘stubby’ barrels of 7,500 connectors, you earn a reward. There are currently 15 rewards to choose from on IDEAL’s website including IDEAL tools, cutting supplies – you can even get the famous Can-Twist Machine.

Claiming your reward is as simple as uploading your proof-of-purchase from any authorized electrical distributor in Canada and selecting your item. You can view the entire selection of rewards on IDEAL’s website.
