Product overview

• Replacement NTE5A Master socket• Removable face plate for easy extension wiring• Noise reduction technology helps improve ADSL line speed• Includes IDC tool and mounting screws

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This unit (made by a company called Kauden) is flimsy, badly made and generally shoddy. The plastic used is thin, such that the self-tapping screws are unable to pull the faceplate firmly onto the back box. Fixing the back box to the wall presents the same problem. The whole thing flexed horribly as I tried to make the connections with a Krohn punchdown tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple replacement for an aged BT Master Socket Bought to replace an old BT box that was suffering from age, fitted to the already mounted backing-box so just the socket part used.

I am under the impression that only BT Openreach engineers are allowed to fit these sockets to the incoming line. Is this correct?

Asked by: Freetle
I am not aware of any legal restrictions, put simply anyone can attempt the install, however if done incorrectly BT will charge you handsomely to put it right. If you are in anyway unsure then please have it installed by a qualified individual.

Is it easy to fit

Asked by: Steve
If you have the correct tools to do the job then this is easy to fit. If you are unsure i would advise you speak to a local telecoms engineer.
