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
