How do you wire a plug socket?

Answer

When wiring a plug socket the first step is to unscrew the old face plate and make a note of the wire connections of the earth, neutral and live terminals. Unscrew the back box from the wall and enlarge the hole to make the plug socket fit in the wall. Connect the wires to the new socket plug and fit the face plate back to the wall. Secure the face plate by screwing it to the wall.

To wire a plug socket, unscrew the new plug to remove the cover and strip the wires up to about 4cm before twisting the wire strands tightly together. Connect the blue cable to the left hand terminal, the brown (live) cable to the terminal on the right that contains the fuse and then connect the green and yellow (earth) cable to the middle top terminal. Always make sure that the plug is not powered when making the connections to avoid electric shocks.
