Hi there wonder if any of you guys can advise

I am changing all the electrical/phone sockets in my house for brushed steel. I am now on to the phone sockets when i removed the master it has 6 wires connected and in connections two and five it has a double. The new faceplate is one with screwed connections so it it just a matter of putting those 6 wires(+ 2 extra i presume an extension) in the corresponding connection on the new unit. Also i presume i dont need a push tool or need to bare any wires ? Or do i just need to do two and five ?

It was wired as it is for a reason, if you wire it differently you will then find out what that reason was.
When ever you change anything, always connect it as it was before you touched it.
