Makes life simpler

This is a handy device that is designed to convert a two pin European Schuko plug to a three pin UK plug. It is simply a plug type adapter and does not convert any voltage. It saves having to chop a moulded European Schuko plug off a cable and rewire the cable with a UK plug. Using a product like this is quicker and safer, as many people do not have experience of wiring up mains plugs these days. The only tool needed is a screwdriver. The adapter is an SCP3 model from a British company called PowerConnections and is manufactured in China. It is reassuring to see it is marked with the British Standards Kitemark.

It is made from good quality black plastic, with brass sockets and pins. On the outside there is a compartment containing a 13A fuse. To use the adapter, the hinged top cover is opened and a Schuko plug is carefully plugged in (upside down), and then the cover is closed. Care must be take here to ensure the lip of the top shell mates well with the lower shell. Two self tapping screws are then used to secure the two halves together. The result is a quite large UK plug that almost resembles a wall mounted power supply. The power cable emerges at right angles to the adapter, so it should fit onto cramped power extension strips with ease. On giving the Shuko plug a test wiggle in the adapter, it can slide up and down slightly which I suppose is due to the adapter being designed for plugs of slightly different sizes. I do not think it could be pulled out easily, so the end result seems sturdy and safe.

Overall, this seems to be a well designed and good quality item that will make life a lot easier for someone who wants to start using their new gadgets from Thomann and not wire plugs.

Whether you want it or not, it's coming

Just like the giant Sports Direct mug you never ordered but appears in every package, whether you want it or not it's coming.
Even if you plan to cut the Shuko socket off your fitting and fit a more durable and less cumbersome 13A plug, you'll still get this, so you can use it to fill up a box of spare parts until you have enough of them to become a supplier and sell them back.
Maybe one day they'll offer an option not to take it, or a disclaimer so equipment can be provided without, but until then these not-even-single use plastic items will continue to be shipped into our theatre and immediately stored in a Citizen-Kane style storage unit. (Along with all our old Raylights and scrollers)

Thumbs up!

We take our little adapters for granted here in the UK and it's great that we can rely on quality products like this one.

Does what it's meant to do with no complaining - unlike our drummer.
Just check it's tightened up properly every once in while - not a criticism just standard practice! Practice, again not like our drummer.

this is a great way to adapt euro plugs to a uk plug without cutting wires etc,although its quite big compared to a uk plug but it does fit its purpose great.
