    Connecting a temporary light

    Use 2 safety pins. Job done. Easy peasy. Turn off electricity before inserting safety pins. You've been warned.

    You take all the light fitting off and just roll up the cable. I saw this done at a funeral party tuther day. They just run the mains cable around the place and fitted the lights according to their need. Saves splicing to make a connection and easy to pack up for next job.

    Was the funeral for the one who did the connecting or someone who accidentally touched one of the safety pins.

    You should not be posting that sort of thing, there are some on here who are silly enough to try it.

    I'm open to trying it if the situation arose where I didn't want to splice a cable and it was a quick temporary fix. Hat's off to the Thais for thinking on their feet. Just need some safety pins now.
