Handling electricity is never a safe and jobs related to it should always be left to a professional since they know how to tackle these problems and know the right fix. Nonetheless, there are certain jobs that don’t exactly warrant the use of a residential electrician in Denver or anywhere for that matter. It is a job that you can complete on your own. Below is a step by step process on how to complete this task.
Step 1 : Turn off the power and prep the socket
Step 2 : Drill required holes where necessary
To help with the installation of the double black box, enlarge the given holes with the drill. In case any extra material needs to be removed, use a hammer and chisel to make a better hole for installation. For plasterboard walls, using a saw will give the best result.
Step 3 : Install the black box
Pull out the inlet holes inside the box and proceed to put the wires through them
Place and fix rubber grommets around the holes within the boxes for better protection of the wires
Identify, mark, drill and install said holes
Step 4 : For Ring circuit users only
For this scenario, identify and grab on to the wires for each terminal, which is live, neutral and earth and twist them together and push them into the terminals and fix tightly by screwing them in place with a screwdriver. Incase of bad wiring, cutoff the bad ends and strip the wire ahead of it and use it for installation. With the help of pliers, fold back the bare ends of the wire to avoid any injury. Once this is taken care of, install the wires in their respective terminals.
Step 5 : Put back and install all other parts
Put the faceplate back on to the black box and screw it in place keeping in mind no wires are popping out from it. Fill any cracks or holes that you see around the edges of the faceplate that may have come up during installation.
Step 6 : Test the socket once the above steps are finished
Turn the power on to the socket from the main supply and check to see if the socket works. In case it doesn’t, unscrew the faceplate and check all connections. If the problem still persists, call your residential electrician in Denver or elsewhere to help with the problem and fix it.
In case you don’t have much knowledge about these things but still want to go ahead with this job, below are some useful tips that you can look over prior to the start of this job which will he you and keep you safe in the process
