IDEAL Introduces New Twister PRO, the World's Most Comfortable Wire Connector

SYCAMORE, IL, January 29, 2004 - IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., the leader in wire connection technologies, has unveiled its new Twister PRO®, the world's most comfortable-to-use wire connector.

Representing a major step forward in wire connector design, the Twister PRO features a soft SureGrip® overmolding wrapped around its shell's swept wings. The strategic placement of the overmolding reduces pressure on the electrician's thumb and forefinger, plus provides a better grip for improved leverage and more torque, especially with larger wire connections. The end result is faster connections plus greater comfort.

"Our original Twister is recognized today as the premier wire connector in the industry, but for IDEAL, staying ahead of the curve is what innovation is all about," said Ned Camuti, Vice President and General Manager, IDEAL Wire Termination. "That's why we've spent a great deal of time and research designing the finest twist-on connector in the world - the Twister® PRO with its perfect synthesis of comfort and performance."

Like the original Twister, the Twister PRO has a ribbed cap with a hexagonal head that provides the installer with a secure grip and faster fingertip starts, along with swept wings for installation by hand or with a standard nut driver. The live-action, square-wire spring expands and contracts for safer, more secure connections.

Electricians will also appreciate the Twister PRO's wide range capacity that easily handles the most common wire gauges and combinations for both residential and commercial work.

Contributing to the connector's safety advantage is a deep skirt that helps prevent flash-over events, while also reducing the number of turned-back strands for maximum dielectric protection. The shell is fabricated from tough, UL 94V-2 flame-retardant thermoplastic rated at 105°.
