        Wait... I remember those. If I recall correctly, the contacts on the flat cable side were designed to handle a very specific shape of conductor. Their flaring did not lend itself well to -- as you point out -- anything other than T&B cable.

        I also seem to recall that their mechanical strength, in terms of the clamp portion, was not what it could have been.

        Thanks for clearing that up anyway.
