have them, rarely use them. I perfer to solder and shrink wrap tube my connections. The few times I have used them they are hit or miss on making a reliable connection.

I find the insulation is too thick on the fridge end of the wires to use them. See pages 8 & 9 of this PDF: http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/313619O/3mtm-scotchloktm-family-brochure.pdf
