Hi, I’ve read through various posts , please can you confirm I have this correct? Photos attached.
I’m replacing a plastic light fitting that goes into a rose with a metal one that just attaches to the ceiling with a bracket
I believe I should put the switched live into the Live terminal (blue with brown around it) Earth into Earth terminal (green yellow) Neutral into neutral terminal (black) And as I haven’t got a spare terminal use a terminal block to connect live (red) and live (brown)
Can I cut the double terminal block in half to save space? Is it ok to wrap the cable inside the fitting as I want it a lot shorter than supplied ? Is it ok that there is just one earth that I can see, or might another be there when I remove the rose?
Sorry for all the questions, I want to get this right.
