      Where can i buy a master socket?

      I fully understand the legalities surrounding master sockets but am still looking at fitting my own (dont have to waste holidays to stay in waiting for BT to arrive).

      Does anyone know where I can buy a master socket (maplins??) as I don't currently have one installed?

      Cheers

      We have recently started stocking them as people buying faceplates kept asking for them.

      They're a nice little earner, these 'BT' master sockets. I wonder if BT would actually be fooled by someone 'illegally' installing one themselves? I somehow doubt it. Most amateur installations stand out like a sore thumb to a telecoms engineer. Even selling 'em on eBay is 'illegal'. The reality is, BT will never visit the average house in a lifetime, why should they. Still, I also bought a genuine 'BT' logo'd box just in case. Stupid or what?

      Yeah I bought mine with a BT logo on the front on eBay too. I did a search on the 'net to see how BT bods tidy up the wiring inside and copied that. If I ever have to call out an engineer and he queries it I'll deny all knowledge and blame the previous occupier lol
