      extension wires in faceplate

      I am using the test socket in the master socket but i have taken the front cover of the bt faceplate off. I have disconnected the extension leads from this and just moved them to the opposite side of the socket. It is uncovered at the moment so I will order the suggested faceplate. Am I correct in thinking that if I don't need to connect the extension wires it is as simple as screwing the faceplate on. What shall I do with the extension wires if I don't need to use them. Will they be coming off the main line. I really don't want to touch the wires.

      If you dont need them connected, just leave them disconnected.

      What I normally do is cut the bared wire off so it is insulated. Roll the wire round a pencil and then slide it off, so they are neatly coiled and then put the faceplate back. You could cover them in insulation tape to be sure though.
