To wire a telephone socket, start with the last socket and finish with the master socket. Cut about 13 mm of sheath at the end of each cable on every socket and expose the white nylon ripcord. Grip the ripcord and firmly pull it down, exposing the wires to about 50 mm. Cut away the unwanted sheath then using the nylon tie provided with the socket, fix the cable carefully to the cable mount on the socket's faceplate.

When wiring a telephone socket first examine the gold pins in the back of the telephone socket. Pin one is the tip for line three while pin two is the tip for line two then pin three is the ring for line one. Consequently pin four is the tip for line one and pin five is the ring for line two. Pin six is the ring for line three. Identify the wires that connect to the terminals and strip ¼ inch of the insulation for each telephone wire. Place the each wire to the correct screw and fasten the terminal screw. Your telephone socket is now wired.
