      The main feed (cable coming from outside your property) is connected to the screw terminals A and B.

      Extension wires are connected to the 2 and 5 terminals.

      Your not allowed to touch the main BT master socket because its owned by BT themselves.

      Your allowed to run it as an extension from BT's master but yot not allowed to change change it.
