Lower faceplate installation instructions

Will this fit my existing socket? 

 

 

If you have a current NTE5 socket yes this will fit. Please note: this will not fit the NTE5c.

 

 

My existing lower faceplate has more than 3 connections?

 

 

Several years ago, BT Openreach changed the design, most commonly only two of the connections are used, numbers (2 and 5) connection number 3 is used when a bellwire is in use. (Some older phones and bells use this and is no longer common) Most internal cable that is used is what we call 3 pair (3 sets of wires) Commonly these are a pair of blues a pair of oranges and a pair of greens) We normally use the blue pair for telephone extensions and connect these to connectors 2 and 5. The other wires maybe connected but are not normally needed.
