And I might do a small power off job in the next couple of days. An annoying and costly problem has been (at least Iím pretty sure it must be) carers for dad or dad with them bang into things in the narrow corridor when they wheel him about. Iím not sure of the whyís and wherefores on the moving part as Iím willing to try all but am now just doing the putting to bed move.

Weíve had to replace one radiator valve controller and two night lights for reasons that I can only see as being caused by collisions and Iím certain itís not me bumping in to things. I canít go around accusing others or telling them to be more careful though.

I think the radiator valve one has been made safer by turning it round so you canít see the lcd panel. That cutís down on the protrusion and I donít think anyone bent down to look at the display anyway.

The light is more difficult. Moving the socket which is in an akward place would be best but thereís not an easy and sightly way I could manage that. The nightlight I got this time is slimmer though and I think that coupled with using a 25mm/1Ē back box (Iím not sure why the current one is so deep) will cut the amount sticking out there by 50mm/2Ē which will reduce the chance of it getting knocked.
