Default Re: Another Lidl heatshrink pack.

Wire nuts!

In June last year Lidl were doing Scotch Lock style IDC connectors rated at "Max. 250V"

I surmised those who knew no better would think they were safe for mains.

When I went in a few days later they were nowhere to be seen although the other kits in the series were still in stock. I hope they were withdrawn on safety grounds.

<Edit>
They were indeed recalled
