Connecting to Tip/Ring phone connectors: Insulated or Bare wire?

I haven't found this answer anywhere online. When I'm connecting phone wire to the Tip/Ring connectors in the Fios ONT, do I strip the wire first, or is that unnecessary? The little tabs rotate out and I can slip the wires into them. I just didn't know if they'd be pierced or if they need to be stripped first.

The line is not activated yet, or I'd be able to just try it.

Thank you!
