Hubbell's Twist-Lock® Edge Series Receptacles are the Fastest to Terminate

12/11/2020

Hubbell’s Twist-Lock® edge spring termination locking receptacles deliver a significant improvement over screw receptacles that can help you reduce wiring installation time by upwards of 80 percent. With spring termination, receptacles technicians can complete the installation completely by hand without a screwdriver or torque wrench. This new termination method follows the NEC guidelines for requiring the use of a torque driver to secure the terminations is no longer required. It's an ergonomic solution that not only saves time but significantly reduces wrist strain as well. Furthermore, wires stay tight for the long term regardless of vibration or temperature cycling or strand relaxation. You won't have to go back and re-tighten. Just install once and you're all set. Since there is no exposed metal on the receptacle, you can place even more of them closer together as needed. Think about how much time can you save. Studies show that the average time required by a professional installer to complete a screw termination is one minute and eight seconds with the Hubbell Twist-Lock spring termination system.
