UK Mains Plugs

19 posts in this topic

Yes the rubber topped plug was the MK as I recall.

I didn't know you could get the Furutech from Merlin cables for £40 so that's useful to know.

The big clear bodied thing is by Clipsal and it's a "water/splashproof" connector used in wet environments, hence the huge diameter of the body and locking ring. I found the maximumum diameter of cable that will go though is around 16mm and that is a really tight fit. Even after removing the ring and filing down the remaining shoulders it still overlaps adjacent sockets on a power strip so I much prefer the Furutech even though it is nearly 3 times the price of the Clipsal.

Effem, i have seen on ebay some lewden industrial 13 amp plugs, that have a drop down cable outlet and are advertised as being able to take large cables and appears a lot slimmer than the clipsal. If you want a link, let me know and I will look around for it.
