funky plug-in connectors in new recessed lights
the recessed lights i bought last year came with regular loose three wires that needed to be spliced and capped to wire in and out, if any, the old-fashioned way.
however, the same lights i just bought a few weeks ago came with some funky plug in contraptions that lock the wire pushed in and, to my understanding, there is no way out but cutting the wire. there are four holes in each connector.
Q1: what do you call that connector ?
Q2: any cons to this solution. looks like cheating to me. should i have done away without it, cut them out and splice the wire ?
