Hi all,

I'm wiring one of those smart switches which is a single gang and I have three live wires (x2 com) (x1 L1) and three neutral wires that are currently in a block. The original switch just use live (com and L1).

I've wired up the new switch with the live wires but I am trying to attach the neutral wires. Do all three need to connect to the switch or could I get away with one being attached and the other two in the block?

Thanks in advance!

Fantastic, thanks for the advice. Used a jumper cable and it works like a charm!

Big assumption that neutrals are neutrals and not switched lines that haven’t been sleeved
