How To Pigtail Wire Connection

  • A pigtail connection consists of a piece of electrical wire, rated for the amperage of the circuit being connected, used to connect two or more wires. The National Electric Code requires that you have a minimum of six inches of wire. This can be a scrap piece left over from the project that you are working on. Choose the same color wire as the ones you are connecting to. This will save you from confusion when connecting to the device.
