Ring 12N 7 Pin Socket

• Install a seven pin socket on your vehicle
• Standard ‘N’-type seven pin socket
• Requires wiring

What can I use this for?
The 12N seven pin socket is commonly used to wire the rear lights on a vehicle to connect and match them with the trailer or caravan. When you use this socket, the lights on the trailer – such as brakes or indicators, if applicable – light up in the same way as the vehicle. This way, fellow road users can see all manoeuvres being signalled.

How difficult is it to wire the socket up?
The socket can easily be wired up by anyone with basic knowledge. If in doubt, we recommend talking to an auto electrician.

Can you tell me please what is the external diameter of this socket
