First, let me say that I have limited knowledge of electrical. The joke I like to tell is that if you flip the switch and the light comes on, it works. If it doesn't, call an electrician!
Here's my situation: I have some of those cheap 20W Chinese LED outdoor floodlights. I'd like to wire up one of the lights over my workbench in the garage, but I'd also like to wire it in such a way that when it fails (as they are prone to do) I can cut the power to the garage, disconnect the light, and hook up the new one. I got some "heavy duty outdoor" bullet connectors (they have a yellow plastic shell) for 10-12AWG wire from Amazon, and my idea is to crimp the connectors on to the ends of the wires so that I can just cut the power (at the breaker) unplug the connectors, plug in the new light, and turn everything back on.
My question is this: is there some kind of special tool I need to crimp these on, or can I use regular pliers?
