Sorry Dodgeman..........but that isn't up to code either..........

Use a "greenie" wire nut:
Start with a long length of bare wire .......loop one end of the bare pigtail around the metal box/screw and tighten......

Bundle all grounds with the green wire nut and the long bare ground wire fits thru a hole in the wire nut........Use a needle nose to firmly attach the connector.........Then carefully push the connection to the back of the box leaving the other bare end of the pigtail to attach to the device..........

Don't use a smaller gauge wire.............

Neatness counts.......work safe......doug
