    Anyone been inside the sockets?
    The barrel on the second from left loose. Cut away the black plastic and
    shows a deep recessed ring on the barrel that the plastic ring must force
    into and hold the barrel in place.
    Via the gap in the mounting plate it is possible to see inside and the
    silvery protruding barrel is swaged out , rivet fashion , under the backing
    plate and earth tag, so must be assembled/swaged from inside the socket
    before the contacts are placed inside . Innards not removed as requires
    desoldering a number of wires , cleaning off all solder and pulling the
    pierced rear paxolin sheet. Anyone know how the contacts are fitted inside,
    for any future revisit to these awkward sockets.
    Patching up again, matter of twisting wire into this recess to tension up, a
    ring cut from a piece of power cord gland plastic, fitted over and glued in
    place, bodge covered by the front panel that goes over these 4 sockets.
