Supplier of unwired 4 gang sockets?

Unread post by Berty bass » Mon Feb 19, 2018 2:56 pm

I was intending to rewire a cheapy 4 gang I've got with Belden 19364 and got as far as connecting the plug before finding the socket end was tamper proof. Grrr. Have done some googling but I'm struggling to find a supplier of unwired 4-gang blocks - ideally unswitched and without lights, fuses etc. I'm asking more in hope than expectation but has anyone got a contact at all?
Thanks,
BB

I was looking at those, Andy, but struggled to find one that didn't have a neon light and/or switches and fuses...

Yeah the one I bought had a neon Berty, but it took me literally 5 minutes to isolate it and remove it from the circuit. I was shocked at the quality/gauge of the internal wiring and came to the conclusion it was all that was needed.

The one I bought does not have switched sockets so they are available

The one I bought is similar to the second one with the neon now isolated.
