i didnt even think to check for white lol i have dark sockets
just to add, mine have arrived already, earlier today and they are as simple to use and discreet as theyre meant to be...i waited to post deal before i knew for sure!
Thanks kimbers
Why do you need your plugs to be 'discreet'???? Because of the lack of earth or summat??
Thanks
Link doesn't show this version at all & it's with a different trader.
could do with a couple of these good find
COLD....
support the UK economy not the frogs,,,,,
mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Very discreet! Is it some sort of panty liner?
I do it simpler. Chop the head off the euro plug and wire it on a UK plug.
I love how OP describes it as 'very discreet', as if there's some unmentionable shame that goes hand in hand with having a non-standard plug in your household.
hmmm, very discreet.... no one will ever notice
exactly what i was looking for today.. thanks
im not scared to expose when im converting... dont be ashamed.

What do you do if you go abroad with an appliance that requires a 2 pin plug that you have cut off ?

Plug it into the travel adapter that you'll have brought with you for... you know, all your other stuff.
I've had one of these come with a device, and they're huge. The pictures really don't demonstrate how chunky these plugs are. They really caused me issues with power splitters. However at this price they're worth getting, definitely better than having them wobble around on the standard adapters.

It takes a certain amount of skill, not to mention time, to wire a 13A plug. So this is not for everyone and no reason for childish exclamations of "cold".

ill use one of my euro multichargers that were reduced in tesco from £10 to £1
Shame that it is not universal as only for slim plugs. normal size won't fit. tbh I have some stuff with european plug. I bought european extension block and changed plug there. I have 4 sockets for just few quid. It is in use in my PC/TV/audio corner.
Why not use a shaver adaptor that you can buy in Poundland or similar for £1 ?

Because shaver plugs don't have the same pin spacing as euro plugs.

I have been using a shave adaptor for a couple of electrical items that I have purchased in Europe and the holes are just the right size (they are a half moon shape on my plug so fit round and straight pins)

However this does mean the wires protrude from the wall socket somewhat, so this seems like a much neater solution

thanks

Because they don't grip a Euro plug firmly enough so the plug tends to fall out.

Bought 10 of these back in 2010 fot £12 as only got 1 delivery charge. I used some and gave some away to family, but still got 2 left (in my mans drawer under the usual pile of batteries and fuses etc). I don't seem to get euro plugs at all anymore though. They are wider than your normal plug so can cause problems with multi sockets but they are excellent and easy to use, the only problem i had once was that the 2 pin plug itself was so wide itself it didn't fit in this. Other than that its a great product.
Seems i could have got another 15 for an exra £5, Pack of 25 for £15 here (so 60p each)
amazon.co.uk/Eur…-65

.....Going to need a bigger drawer.

Shove a screwdriver in the earth socket and jam in the Euro plug. That is how real men use Euro Plugs in UK sockets. Yes it does work.
