Villa Fold Out Mattress Inflation Control Wire

During our last trip out in May, DC Tina (dear cousin) accidentally caught the control wiring in the foldout mechanism on the bed and ground a couple of the 6 wire insulation to smithereens. (I call it bull in a china cabinet damage-lol) Hope she never reads this.

I am finally fixing it and these are little tiny phone wires. They are not solid copper, they are stranded copper. I have a question:

Will this splice connector work?

Ideal Industries, Inc. 85-950 UY-I IDC Connector

It says solid copper...or am I being too literal and exposing my ignorance?

Here is a picture of the control that the wiring was damaged. I'll also want to put some sort of protective sleeve over it so that won't happen again.
