Connecting 10mm LED.

I have been having a lot of fun lately putting ultra bright 10mm LED's into all kinds of stuff. All I use is the 5vdc wall wort, current limiting resistors, and the LED's of course. Soldering them kind of suck. It doesn't always want to stick even when I wipe it with alcohol. It's hard to hold and I get cold joint's a lot. Not that it matters in this application much. I tried small wire nuts but they just break the leads when I twist them. Is there an easier way? Perhaps some kind of clamp or cheap socket that could be used?

Thank You.

How about plain connector block which can be cut to length.

Perfect. Thank You :)

Just make sure you get ones that tighten on the thin wires properly. Sometimes the base of the hole is curved, and even if you do the screw right up, there's a gap at the bottom and thin wires are then not clamped.

Or get small ones...
