Loose ends are only a problem when they bother you. Loose ends that you don’t want take a lot of mental energy. These are the bad loose ends. Back to the example of the car service. Maybe you’ve been putting that off because you suspect the car has a problem that the mechanic will pick up during the service and that will be expensive. There is at least three bands / artists called Loose Ends. One of the top British dance and urban contemporary trios in the early 1980s, Loose Ends formed in London, United Kingdom. They were originally called Loose End and included Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene and Steve Nichol. This item: The Best Of Loose Ends by Loose Ends Audio CD £4.99. Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes - The Very Best Of Melvin. 4.7 out of 5 stars 200. Damaged contact points are the main cause of loose outlets. The contacts simply wear out over time, but heat and sparks from bad wiring can also cause damage. The bottom line is that you need to fully replace a loose outlet and also look for signs of other electrical safety problems such as burnt wires.
