The outlet I just put in uses screws but you don't wrap around the screw you
push the wire in and the screw pulls a metal plate up against the screw.
Is this method acceptable????
Personally, I'm not a big fan of clamp type outlets. I've had occasions

back into the box, they come loose. I think the wrap around the screw method
is more positive, and you can easily see if its a good connection
