Phone sockets provided for plug-ended ringing devices should have all conductors terminated in accordance with standard cabling practice so that they may be used for connection of other apparatus if required. Where for engineering reasons (e.g. PBX Night Bell) or at customer request the ringer must not be unplugged, the plug may be secured by fitting a 'bar locking'.

 Exceptionally, where a phone socket is provided for an extension bell / Ringer at a payphone, terminations may be made to phone socket terminals 3 & 5 only to prevent unauthorised use by telephones.

The Line cord of Bell No. 50E may be cleated in place using cleats wiring 4C and if necessary (with customer agreement) be shortened (to a minimum length of 300mm) where bell / tone caller is to be fitted adjacent to phone socket.
