Keeping this in consideration, can crimp connectors be used on solid wire?
Yes, you can crimp a barrel sleeve on solid wire, it is done in resi work all the time. I would recommend use a real crimper instead of just squeezing it with pliers. The T&B website does not differentiate between solid or stranded. It only says to crimp the connectors, (small sized).
Also, what are the best wire connectors? Wire connectors are used to ensure a secure and low-impedance connection between two or several electrical wires within a box.

One may also ask, how do I remove a crimped wire connector?
In most cases, connectors either hold the wire in with a small metal prong or they are crushed onto the wire. With a gentle tug, the wire usually pulls out of the connector. Place a pair of wire cutters next to the connector and cut the wire to remove it from the connector.
How much insulation do I need to strip wire?
If you going to wrap the electrical wire around the terminal screw on the electrical receptacle (or a light switch terminal) you need to strip back a bit more than 1/2-inch in order to have enough copper to go around the screw leaving no insulation under the screw head when it is tightened.
