I D C Telephone Sockets

Can anyone tell me where I can obtain branded IDC secondary telephone sockets in the Sheffield area. The type that can be terminated with a Krone type tool. I'm fed up of intermittent faults with the screw type extension sockets that I bought in a DIY  store which are of obvious foreign origin. The screws terminate the wire against the contact springs if you're lucky and sometimes make contact. After getting my fingers burned I don't do internet purchases any more.

Maplin would have been my suggestion.
Alternatively CCL Online are very good (and they are local to me, so I have been in a few times and seen their operation first hand - its very good)

Bardwells on Abbeydale road is the shrine to electronics at which I have worshipped on many an occasion but Maplin on Pinstone street or Langsett road are good bets.
B&Q also do stuff like that Roll eyes
