Electrical tape, quick-splice connectors or butt splices for connecting 12AWG?

I’m replacing the existing light switch with a built-in timer, but I have a problem: I cannot use twist-on wire connectors as they occupy too much space in a switch box.
Is it safe to use just an electrical tape? Also, can I use quick-splice connectors or butt splices for the same purpose? What’s the best solution? Thank you

Butt Splices (http://www.wiringproducts.com/contents/media/l_butt_splices.jpg)

The NEC does not allow you to use butt connectors on wire unless it is stranded. Electrical tape is not an approved mechanical splice. Soldering is not approved for that use unless the house is wired with Knob and tube, if that is the case you need to use the correct knot and then solder it. you won't have room for that. So that leaves the quick splice connectors which probably will take up the same amount of room as a wire nut. If all else fails you may have to install another cut in box above the existing switch box and patch the hole left by the old box.
