Connecticut Electrical Contractor Experiences the Advantages of Bridgeport’s Tool-Free, Quick-Install, Armored Cable Connector

Press release date: Dec 20, 2016

Bridgeport’s AMC-50QI fitting saves electricians time and money

STRATFORD, Conn. (Dec. 20, 2016) - Contractors want a cable connector that cuts down on both labor costs and installation time and gets the job done right. Just ask George Casner, Jr., owner of Casner Electric LLC in Milldale, Conn. Casner explains why Bridgeport’s AMC-50QI fitting is so much better than the old-style, locknut-type connectors that take a long time to install and with no guarantee of a solid connection or proper grounding. “When you lock in the Bridgeport connector, it’s really in there,” Casner stated.

Casner also noted that when feeding the Bridgeport connector into where the cable is going to be grounded, there is less chance of a short circuit or a breaker tripping which can happen with a traditional connector.

Bridgeport’s AMC-50QI is not only easy to install but easy to remove - a benefit the Connecticut contractor likes a lot. “Sometimes you overload connectors on one side of the panel but find you need to reposition a connection to the back or other side of the panel.” Casner goes on to explain how the Bridgeport fitting is easy to pop out and reposition.

Bridgeport’s AMC-50QI is the industry’s only double-snap type AMC connector. Electricians simply snap the connector onto the cable, squeeze the lever and set into the knockout. The solution is part of Bridgeport’s full range of electrical solutions that can be found in the “Wall of Orange™” - a completely stocked selection of quality electrical fittings and innovative product solutions available from major electrical distributorships across the U.S. and Canada.
