I used the lever type in a box that didn't have much room.  They were a blessing.  They are much easier and foolproof than wire nuts for me.

I just bought a bunch of LVP from WeShipFloors.com.  Free shipping and 10% off on sale.  I haven't put it down yet, but the ordering and shipping were painless.  I opened a box and all looks good.
