Here's a step-by-step guide on how to wire a 3-pin plug:

You will need:

  • A 3-pin plug
  • A screwdriver
  • A wire cutter/stripper
  • Three wires (live, neutral, and earth)


  1. Cut the wires to the appropriate length, leaving enough excess to work with but not too much that it gets in the way.
  2. Remove about 2-3 cm of insulation from the end of each wire using the wire stripper. Make sure not to cut into the wire strands.
  3. Open the plug by loosening the screws on the cover, and then lift the cover off.
  4. Loosen the screws for the terminals, but do not remove them entirely. You should see three terminals: live (brown), neutral (blue), and earth (green and yellow).
  5. Connect the live wire to the live terminal (brown). Make sure the wire is wrapped around the screw in a clockwise direction, so it tightens as you tighten the screw. Tighten the screw securely.
  6. Connect the neutral wire to the neutral terminal (blue) in the same way as the live wire. Tighten the screw securely.
  7. Connect the earth wire to the earth terminal (green and yellow) in the same way as the other wires. Tighten the screw securely.
  8. Once all wires are connected, check that none of the wires are loose and that there is no exposed wire outside of the terminals.
  9. Close the cover over the plug and secure it with the screws.

Note: It is important to ensure that the wires are connected to the correct terminals and that the screws are tightened securely. Failure to do so can result in electrical hazards or damage to equipment. If you are unsure or not confident, it is always best to consult a qualified electrician.
