Cheap Telephone wire

Recommended Posts


My telephone extension to my sky box was installed using one of those extension kit's with a normal telephone plug adaptor plugged into the front of my master phone socket (NTE5). The only trouble is its a bit bulky and keeps getting knocked about, so i thought i would take the lower cover off the NTE5 and connect the cable direct into the socket using the IDC connectors. My problem is that i think the wire is not thick enough to make contact with IDC blades as nothing works, no dial tone, and yes the bloody wire has been chased into the wall. Is there any way i can connect this cheap cable to the innards of my master phone socket?

Any help or ideas would be great!
