    Hi all i was wondering i have a outside fused switched spur with a 13amp fuse powering two double sockets and two separate lights and two separate switches for them. Can you spur two fused switched 3amp spurs from the double socket to protect the lights. Or would two be overloading the socket.
    thanks

    There is no harm in it, though when using the sockets and lights you will have to be very careful what you plug in

    They are not to protect the lights. They are to protect the cable.
