Apologies for what is probably a very simple problem but I am a total beginner. This probably suggests that I shouldn't try to do this myself but I am determined to learn something.
I am looking to switch out several of our two gang wall sockets for ones with USB sockets built in. From reading various guides on the internet, this seemed pretty easy.
Having taken the precations and unscrewed one of the faceplates, the wall box has two sets of wires going into two sets of connectors on the current wall socket whereas the new sockets only appear to have connections for one set.
Likely a stupid question but what do I do? Can I simply connect each set of wires as appropriate so each connector has two wires connected or is it more complex than that?
Feel free to patronise but any pointers would be appreciated.
