In my current shop, I still backwire but with a screw clamp.
    This is why I like arc fault protection so much. Helping wiremen sleep at night since the dawn of the requirement.

    The old ones, probably the first generation, had a square opening. You can see the little bent metal "grabber" in there, and may even be able to get a no. 10 in it. I'll try to remember to take some pictures whenever I get to this job. I think the ones with the holes came in the '80's.
