Question on Buchanon Ground Clamps


I have a double gang box with 5 wires coming into it. Is it okay to join all five grounds with a buchanon connector while leaving 2 of the ground wires long enough to connect to both switches' ground screws in the box?

Yes it is. That is how I do it.
Twist them together, add the clamp and cut off what is not needed.

Thanks. I've never used them before. They seem like the save a lot of space.
