ping!!! pin pierces cable



In reality though - how many times have you been called out to fix a fault with a nail/screw through a cable in a vertical/horizontal safety zone vs in the 150mm from top/corners.... I don't think I've ever had a callout for the latter. Electricians know about safety zones... majority of home-owners don't seem to!

I put that down to the fact that most of us would avoid the corners like the plague so less chance there is actually a cable in that zone anyway.

Wheras the verticals might be expected by some and the horizontals to a lesser (but appreciable ) extent
