Silly question, once you've taken the screw out, how do you open the case to put the original plug in?

How does this open? Taken screw out but can't pull the 2 halves apart!

Asked by: Pants70
There are also 4 clips (two above the earth pin and one on either side towards the base of the plug), you may still need to release these clips in order to release the top from the base.

Hi please help, I bought 2 of these but the flat pin I have does not fit. Where the socket is on this plug is far to deep for the flat pin euro plug I have.

Asked by: Notechno
Then i would suggest this is the wrong adapter for your plug . I recommend taking the plug you have to a maplin store and matching it up with the correct one.

I have purchased an item that says it is a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other), would this adapter fit it?

Asked by: Angie
