ream the hole to 1/2" and use one of these...,
I'm installing under cabinet lights in the kitchen. Simple flat (approx. 1 1/8") flourescents. One of the fixtures has to be fed from one down the line via a loop of 14/2 in the wall. The little connectors (mini Romex clamps) provided for the fixture can't accomodate two 14/2 cables, so what is commonly done? Since the fixture will be flush with the backsplash, my inclination is to leave it off. Suggestions? Thanks.
Get a second connector. They're a bit hard to find, but they're out there...
The fixture ought to have more than one knockout - if not, drill a 2nd hole.
Use a proper step-bit, to get a smooth hole.

Just so everyone's clear: I'm the POODLE in the picture ("french", get it?) The hot woman is my wife.
Thanks guys. It never occurred to me to just make the hole bigger and put a proper size connector in. I only needed one right now so I just filed the hole bigger and inserted a standard Romex clamp. When the backsplash gets tiled, it looks like those plastic snap-in clamps are the ticket.
Is the junction of the fixture large enough to accept all these wires?
