So, are you saying that the filter can has blade terminals for the live
and neutral inputs/outputs?
If so, I've been known to use a couple of strips of metal,
well-insulated, of course, to bypass such things. Another idea (if your
junk box is anything like mine) is to use a double-pole switch with spade
temrals, set to the 'on' postion, as a jumper. Just make sure it can't
short to anything else.
My concern is that you don't want to bypass the internal circuit breaker,
just in case there's a fault that should trip it.
