Interesting, Paul. Defeats the much-trumpeted break-away "feature" of the standard IEC connection though, doesn't it (not that I'm a great fan of that)! Notice that they fit a 5 A fuse (we would prefer 10 A, would we not). But could these indeed be "the answer"? And the price looks OK. Has anyone tried them yet? smile

If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
