Saludos, el texto es parte de un instructivo de instalación, tengo la duda respecto a "sized twist". ¿Podría ser giro calibrado?

Agradezco como siempre sus aportaciones y sugerencias.

regleta de conexión adecuada


Explanation:
Hola, como dice Enrique "sized" se refiere con "appropriately" al tamaño del connector que tiene que ser adecuado.
Mientras "twist on" se refiere al hecho que hay que torcer los dos cables desnudos y juntos antes de insertarlos y cerrarlos en las regletas unipolares.
