The "tilt-in" 2-piece connector for non-metallic sheathed cable (a.k.a. Romex™) is a labor saving design that lets the electrician clamp the connector onto the cable, tilt it into the knockout and tighten down the screws. The screws both bind the connector to the enclosure and compress onto the cable making a secure fit. This eliminates the need to remove the locknut and re-attach it inside an often cramped box. Originally marketed by Tomic™. Available in conduit sizes from 1/2" to 1-1/2", (see also 'Butterfly Connector'; 'Tomic').
