Unless you have been trained how to properly test ring main circuits and know what you are doing that could be very dangerous.

In simple yes, just make sure to take the correct safety precautions. youtube.com/wat…VJ8
Wanted to get set of various sockets, but only few items have free delivery - even if you have item with free delivery in the basket you have to pay for delivery if there is item that doesn't have the offer :/

Why?

Can you point to the reg that says back boxes have to be earthed (no you cant because it does not exist)

Surface boxes have to be earthed

More 'experts' spreading misinformation
This is the cheapest I have seen these even with my discount at the wholesalers I would pay around £4.50 plus VAT for these
Nonsense about earthing the backbox.. and do NOT try to replace yourself, takes one wrong label on fuse board to kill you. Its really that simple. Hire a proffesional.

It's called belt and braces.

Every decent and competent electrician will always attach a fly lead from the back box to a metal faced socket.

If you rely on a machine screw to earth a back box and a metal face plate socket, then you are basically cutting corners regardless of whether it's in the reg's or not.

There's no excuse for shortcuts.

Theres no excuse for shortcuts again show me the reg that says you have to earth back boxes

Belt and braces lol i would wipe the floor with you self rightous idiot
