I have found an increasing number of strip connectors used for joins in cables in roof voids, this is quite worrying, considering that they almost always involve the live conductor, of a two-way lighting circuit. Normally these wires have to be joined in a fitting, under AS/NZ 3000, Anybody feel different?.

It's a bit dangerous leaving a choco-block in mid-air (yes we're familiar with them in the States, and I used a 3-terminal block instead of the normal American marrettes when wiring up my fume hood - looks much neater and it is enclosed in the wiring panel of the hood).
There's always a danger of something falling into the recessed screw terminals or the entire thing snagging and pulling apart....same thing with Marrettes also I guess.
