Don’t trust a mate to do it !
We had a customer in last week, he wanted us to run a new 12v supply to his television as his old one was “burnt out”.
When the van arrived this is what we removed:-
His mate, who was apparently an electrician had wired it into the light fitting for him using really thin cable, the cable was then taped to the ceiling, across and above the cupboards where on the end was a car cigarette lighter connector which looked like it had shorted out as no insulation on the connections at all.
The end result was the wire had burnt all along its entire length, customer very lucky they didn’t have a fire especially when the cable was hanging from ceiling !
The moral of this story is don’t trust a mate, get a professional in.
