    I have noticed that you did not replace the black safety sleeve that was on at the beginning. Is it not necessary?

  24. IJ Beats Music on April 19, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Thanks. Had to search for this because I didn’t know which wire goes where

  25. Steven on April 19, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Can you use any plug that fits an appliance as long as it has the correct fuse for the appliance? e.g I lost my cable for my tv, it’s basically similar to a kettle lead and I found another one that fits. On the plug I found it says 3A printed on it and it has a 3A fuse. So i took the 3A fuse out and put a 10A fuse in, as I 100% know the tv needs a 10A fuse. Is this ok to use as I’ve put the correct fuse in the plug for the tv?

    Thank you. Dude! 😊😊

  27. David Gladden on April 19, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    the live should be tight (as short as possible) in case the cord grip fails the first wire to disconnect is the Live making the appliance safe, should the neutral disconnect first it leaves the appliance live but in a false state of being dead, if a earth is the first to disconnect it would leave the user acting as the only earth in the case of a fault.

    What if im trying to replace an eu plug for a uk plug. On a table lamp.

  29. Rak Boy on April 19, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Thanks

    You should have stressed how important it is make sure the damaged plug can no longer be used or plugged in . They should not be re used if damaged . I know a person who re used a damaged pug , when she went to plug it in the cover slipped off exposing the live terminals . It blew a hole in her hand .
