Do these (or any other) Powerline sockets have screw connections similar to the plugs listed as screw (not solder) I can only see ones specifically listed as screw connection in plugs not sockets. Are screw connection plug / socket pairs available?

Asked by: joe1
Sorry we do not have any sockets with screw terminal The nearest I could suggest would be N55GU http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/25-x-55mm-solderless-socket-n55gu which uses lever terminals for quick connect.

The Headline description for this says 2.1x5mm, but the description says 5.5mm. Will this product fit your 2.1 x 5mm DC Power Plug (Code: L48AY)?
Asked by: Anonymous
It is not!  This is a 5.5mm socket!  I know because I found out to my cost and annoyance after purchasing this and a 5mm jack.

Is this 5mm or 5.5mm outside diameter?

Asked by: AncientPaddler
the main product description is wrong.  I bought this based on the product descripton '5mm' but this is a 5.5mm socket.  Maplin - please correct product description - it is clear from the specs that this is a 5.5mm socket but the main product description is incorrect.  Annoying.
