How to change new HDB BTO wall socket?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone here have experience changing the new HDB wall socket? I used to change the wall socket of older HDB flats (just unscrew, replace wires, screw back) but the new HDB BTO flats uses a slightly different wall socket.. Can't seem to find any screwing point. Anyone know how to change it? Care to share? Hiring electrician to replace for $50 is a bit too much for me given that I supply the new power socket too.
