Layout of double socket terminals

Postby Tony Dyer » Wed Dec 08, 2021 10:32 am

I'm trying to replace a couple of double wall sockets. However the sockets that I am removing have the Neutral terminal on the left and the Live terminal on the right (as you look at the back of the socket). My new socket has them the other way around and all the other sockets that I have found online are the same. There is not enough spare cable to pull the Neutral across to the other terminal.

Does anyone know where I can obtain sockets with my required configuartion of terminals?

The MK logic plus rapid fix has the neutrals on the left. It doesn't have screw connections either. (Available from all good suppliers, and some that are not so good, and on line.)


An acknowledgement that you have read this post is always appreciated.
