    Extending ring main cables

    I would like to extend the existing 2.5mm T&E cables to relocate a switch. Can I use a 2 way wago connector for each cable and do they need to be enclosed in a box? Also, will this cause any issues with continuity and resistance testing in the future? Thanks in advance
