Postby hayleymum123 » Wed Jul 15, 2015 9:36 am

My single socket has 3 red, 3 black and 3 earth cables, it recently caught fire, when i opened it up some may have come out of their hole, what can i do/buy to fix, instead of squashing 3 wires into each small hole?

Three wires are standard for a ring final with a spur. MK sockets do have slightly larger holes in the terminals.
