All reading and enjoying forum activity this Sunday.

I need to make a wall light redundant but rather than stripping down all the cables that could be much effort and mess, I would like to use a blanking plate against a back box. (Mirror to cover)
Curious to learn the component to blank off the cables rather than leaving exposed even though - contained.
Can I use a terminal block or Wago connector etc?

Similarly, if I was making a double socket redundant and wanting to keep the ring in place, what could I use?.

Great to read your answers.
Tonk and thanks .

:shock: NO

tonk, you answered your own question, wago's.

The reason is a connection / joint should be accessible or maintenance free, wago's are maintenance free.

I would suggest the lever ones

Last note and then we can close! Assuming the back box (metal) should be protected by earth.

Yep, you could use the box earth terminal to connect the earth wires to instead of a wago

Is that a maintenance free earth terminal?
