They are a t-tap connector. The female is 90 degrees to the wire. The connector taps into the wire whether it is at the end of the line or not. The ground wire for a multi gang switch is common and will have multiple tap connectors. The positive side will have a separate tap connector for each circuit. Hope this answers you question.
