Discuss Replacing spur one gang socket for two gang in the Electrical Wiring, Theories and Regulations area at ElectriciansForums.net

Hi all,

I have a single surface mounted socket in a cupboard which our freezer is plugged into. We don't have any sockets in our hall which the cupboard is off so I thought it might be useful to change the one gang socket for a two gang, again surface mounted to keep it simple.

Its on our socket ring main and must be a spur as there is only one cable to it not loop in and out. In theory I think all I need to do is remove the old one gang socket and screw on a two gang box in its place, I would just use the existing supply to the old socket.

Assuming I'm right on the above? Seems like a simple job. Any regulations I should be worried about here? Given I'm literally just replacing the surface box and not changing any wiring? Is this notifiable?

Thanks for the advice
