I just tin the ends of the wire before I punch them down which gives more of a solid wire and more diameter for them to grab onto. That's not good practice but also we're running analog and power through an ethernet jack so who is to say what is right? I've had trouble with the capacitor jammed in like that because its leads are giant compared to the wire diameter of what's being connected (servo and blower wires) so it spreads the fork too much to make good contact with what we're actually trying to connect. With larger wires like those pigtails that is likely not a concern though.
