Re: Light switch needs to be wiggled but... Opps no. Since it was plugged in with the quick connect I kept it that way. Are those things really that bad? If so, why do they even make them?

The old (mid '70s) $3.50 switches i have, you can't get the wires back out. Only way is to cut them off.
New ones, they come out easily without even pressing the release tab. The originals were fine, the Chinese copies don't have proper design to be reliable.

Yeah, the connection gets loose and can fall out or arc, possibly scorching the wire or switch body. MUCH better to use the screws.
