Okay now we're going to take it off and replace it with a new one. So I get my 10 in 1 again, it's real easy take that off. But you just got to be careful with not breaking them, breaking the wire if they're old and crusty. Lots of times they'll snap and they'll just break off. So you have to be careful with them and you want to make sure that they're not touching each other cause they can arch. Even though the power is off and you doubled check and you made sure you still always want to treat it like it's hot just for precautionary reasons. When you're putting on your screw you always want to make sure that it's going with the way you turn it.
