Right ... Just been nudged to set this up by Paul.M and sounds a good idea following recent threads I've done in the Arms..

Rules....No Offensive material... edit if required before posting as this is the public arena.
Anything to do with the trade or in and around it ...H&S pic's welcome.

I've posted this a few times and this is at a mates house following a kitchen refirb several yrs ago. :eek:mg_smile:

Been wondering where that striped cables goes.
That's the new neutral

I'd seen the thread, but hadn't clicked the link. Now I know what the incoming neutral is connected to 😂
 
I'll just leave this here. (I'm privately slightly impressed at the creative thinking!)

Apart from the wrong there is so much right with this, connectors fitted perfectly, it works just as well electrically as a dodgy inline join. Has the IP rating of the commando plug and fits so neatly that it makes every other 16A termination looks like we've bodged them. 10*

It almost looks like a proper product, the body exactly fits the pug inside, proper adaptor terminals, plug in 2 halves etc. The plug inside appears not to have an earth contact an earth so no problems there.
 
Fault tracing a tripping B20 RCBO with a sockets radial, giving L+N to E IR of 0.03M and some interesting crackling above the kitchen ceiling when I tested it! Flat roof above....
When breaking down the circuit, this is how I found this socket:

The next socket one along was the last one testing clear and the cable changes from grey to white between the two.
(For today I left all but two sockets connected and finished up with IR of 176M.)
