    1) The most reliable connection methods are soldering, welding, crimping. Just plain twisting is not recommended. As for the clamps, terminal blocks - everything depends on their quality, but in any case, this method of connection will be less reliable compared to the above methods.
    2) Choose a circuit breaker for the same rating as in the shield with the meter. Choose the manufacturer based on the available assortment and the means at your disposal.
    3) The simplest tool is a special knife for terminating the cable. To simplify the work, use a special tool for stripping (stripper). Choose the one that is suitable for the cost and pay attention that it is designed for the required range of wire cross sections - 0.75-6 sq. Mm.
