How to strengthen the outlet</a>

Loose rosettes in the sockets not only cause inconvenience in use, but also potentially pose a greater threat to human health.

A short circuit will result in the failure of electrical appliances, and a bare wire can cause an electric shock.



Switch off the power supply. To do this, in the switchboard located in the entrance, lower the batch switch, which feeds the entire apartment or automatically disconnect the line from which the socket is feeding. Be sure to check if there is a current in the outlet. Use a tester or indicator screwdriver to do this. If you do not have neither one nor the other - include an electrical appliance in it, whether it's a hairdryer or an electric kettle. If it does not work, there is no voltage. Plug in and pull out the plug gently, holding the socket body by hand.


Remove the screw holding the socket cover and remove this cover. Unplug the socket and put it into the socket, and tighten the screws holding the spacer tabs with a screwdriver until it stops.
Replace the cover and secure it with the screw. In most cases, such an operation will be enough to strengthen the previously dangled outlet.


If this method does not work, tryTo act somewhat differently. Do the same operations until the screws of the spacers are tightened. Only this time, do not twist the screws, but loosen them. Between the paws-spacers and the walls of the podrozetnik place chunks of stapiks or a small piece of wood. The insert must hold tight. Now tighten the screws and put on the cover. Paws should press a piece of wood against the walls of the socket box, which must be securely held inside the jar.


There is another way more solid, moreComplex in performance, but much more reliable than the above. Purchase a socket in the electrical shop with screws for fastening the flange and a Vi-ko outlet. In the device itself there must be holes for the screws.


Unplug the power outlet completely, insulateWires. Using a puncher, widen the diameter of the hole a little, so that you can install a new jar. Take the supply wires into it and strengthen it in a niche with alabaster or cement mortar. Wait until the binder material has dried completely. Install the outlet not in 2, but in 4 points, which will guarantee the strength of the installation of the outlet. Turn on the power and check the operation of the appliance.
