oops I think?


Used some green wire nuts to pigtail the grounds...but needed to add a length of ground. I inserted the piece through the little hole and twisted tight....everything secure at the time...but I am now not sure if this was an acceptable use of this type of wire nut.

So, the question is....should I re-do these connections and use a standard pigtail procedure?

That is what the greenies are for. Just make sure you have a good twisted connection.
