Step 1: Choose Drill Size
Use a slick type of wire nut. You may have to cut a rib down to make it round. The drill size should make the hole the diameter about half way up the wire nut so it can fit snug.
Step 2: Bevel the Hole
With a sharp knife slightly bevel the hole.
Step 3: Drill Through the Wire Nut
Use a #12 wire and choose a drill bit just slightly larger than the wire to drill a hole through the wire nut so the wire can fit into the hole.
Step 4: Insert Wire
Insert the wire into the hole in the wire nut and bend the end sticking out of the end of the wire nut an out 1in from the end over 90 degrees. The other end bend about 3/8 in from the end crimping it tightly against itself. Push inside the wire nut and screw the nut on the wire enough that it will stay.
Step 5: Final Step
Insert the long end of the wire with the 1in bend into the hole and push the wire nut snugly into the hole. fill the wire nut with silicone and let dry. It is ready.
