Hi all,

I have bought a new light fitting to go in my lounge. The existing light is a "regular" 60W bulb hanging from a rose. There are two switches to control the light, one by each door.

My existing rose looks like this:

My new light fitting has a single choc box:

The connections I am about to make are:
  • The left black wire to N
  • The other black on the right to L
  • Both green to earth
  • Add in an extra single choc box to connect both reds together

Is this the right thing to do here?

Thanks for any replies
Matt

Yes, but also put some red or brown tape on the black that is on the right. It will help in the future.
