this may seem naive, but I know nil about electrics; I can follow
instructions on the box!
Bought lights from IKEA. Consists of 2 plastic covered cables, hung
parrallel to each other along the wall. Current flows through those cables,
from a little box, which in turn is fed from mains. I then hang 3 x lights
between the cables, which pearce through the plastic to the inner cables to
obtain their current.
From my schooldays 30 years ago, this means that one cable is neg, one is
pos, and if I put a screwdriver, for example, across the two cables, it will
explode, or blow a fuse, or something? Does anyone know these type of
lights, and are they safe if I were to touch these the two cables at the
same time, as suggested?
My reason for suddenly being concerned is that I have a new kitten
What will happen if the cat chews through one cable, then chews through the
other, and manages to touch both cables at once?
