Yes, but it could be risky. Like for a 220 or 110 ac volts, i would suggest you wear leather or thick rubber gloves to insulate your hand. Or tape one of the open wire to be connected with electrical tape and when 1 line is connected then you can remove the tape and connect the 2nd wire or line. Just make sure the 2 wires dont touch each other also wear leather shoes
