It's a typo, it should say "nonwing" wire connector. I determined this by googling the listed UPC to get alternate descriptions of the item.

These are used in wiring buildings where wire-eating rats are common. The rats see the connectors, and assume no wires are present.

That doesn't make any sense because the wires would be visible.
Wouldn't you have to use nonwiring *wire* along with the nonwiring wire connectors to fool the rats?
That raises the bigger question:
Are they "nonwiring wire" connectors or nonwiring "wire connectors"?
