It all depends on the Installers Background.

Some prefer Benie Connectors

Installers with Electrical Background tend to go with Wire Nuts for a more mechanical connection.

In the end both Systems will work for you . Now for outside i recommend to make your connections inside of a Junction box to keep the connections away from the elements.

Are you trying to cut or splice the end of the cameras power cable?

if so, don't cut the pig tail of the camera I would try using the PT3 cable and the Benie connector to secure it to the Siamese cable end, then you can connect or disconnect the power when needed.

if your looking for a tool to do the splicing then you can use a wire stripper/cutter, we have one that works great

Not cutting the camera leads. Was referring to splicing the flying leads to siamese. Thanks for the responses.
