Default Re: Neutral screw loose again

I have found that those screw terminals with a leaf in them can be a pain if they are rewired.
The leaf can pull out when the wire is removed so that it has to be fixed before it can be rewired.

I don't recall ever having seen full technical specs for a 13A plug.
Do the manufacturers usually specify a tightning torque for the terminal screws?

Hi.

Agreed, I've also experienced this but I'm sure a better design should overcome this.
