LOL Davy! Laughing Laughing

So true, Davy! The PF caps in these gorgeous fittings have the same terminals too! Would still merit a CE stamp once the cover plate is on LOL

Ha ha ha how true I bet some of these new sparkies out there would be horrified to see this!

Nothing a bit of 3mm heat-shrink wouldn't sort out! But why spoil the fittings's heritage? There's a bloody good reason for stamping 'DISCONNECT FROM THE MAINS BEFORE SERVICING' on the cover plates!

what exactly does that stamp mean Tom? Don't know many sparkies who've ever read it Wink Wink

Well it means... "Stop nasty poppy sparky stuff from getting into the mystical bright magic thing by pressing magic switch or nasty poppy sparky stuff may try to consume your soul, very bad!"
