This morning a contractor was taking down some trees at my house. Part of the deal was for him to remove one stump. During the process he accidentally hooked on to the wire to my lamppost and snapped it. Outside the post. I did not want him to repair it as I was afraid he would not do it correctly. Can someone enlighten me regarding the correct way to do this?. It is 14/2 with ground. Thank you.

Thanks Code. I went with the Morris product but in the one foot version as I needed a little extra length after evening up the ends of the damaged cable and stripping.
