    Default Wall-Nuts

    These little splicers called Wall-Nuts do they have to be in a box in all applications? How about if it's in a wall going to a small appliance outlet? Thank you

    I had no idea what you were talking about so I Googled it. These are Wago, or push-in connectors. They are no different that wire nuts.
    YES, they absolutely do have to be in a box or enclosure.
