Long story short, putting new sockets on after some work and the wires coming out of the wall are too short. Is it possible to extend them without running a new wire? Wago connectors and short length of new wire maybe? I would guess even choc blocks would work since they won't be buried. :dunno:

If there isn't room for wagos, what about crimped or soldered extensions?

If you use a ratchet crimper, no problem. Solder and sleeve is also acceptable. But wagos are quicker.
