      I did the same thing for a neighbour of mine!
      We got better results by clipping out the extra wires just leaving pins two and five connected.

      I see now, the one we used had a socket doubler on one end and a box on the other so i could get at the wires.

      i didn't bother with that - i knew it would work i did it for ages in my old house - this one we have now is bought the others have been rented so i will put another socket in at some point.. it just means a white wire running up the house to the far right but no-one sees it and ive painted it to match the house colour - silly know but white on brown shows up
