      About removing the wires

      Just a quick Q, about only leaving cables 2 + 5 connected in the phone sockets, are they soldered in or do they just clip in? And if needed be are they easy to be reconnected?

      Thanks

      Re: About removing the wires

      Hi there,

      Think they just slot in as a mate of mine redone a face plate of me BUT he used a special tool to refix the wires to the box.

      Hope that helps

      Ah right cheers, yeah i just wanted to know if they clipped in, or they needed to be soldered or anything like that, or if you need some special tool... Don't see why i would need to reconnect them but you never know..

      The official name for the tool is a "Krone Tool" or "Punch Down Tool". You can get cheap plastic ones which are good for about 50 wire insertions from your local DIY store for about 1.50. There are also metal tools which are available from places like Maplin Electronics (BP42V) for 15.99, or from Ebay.
