Does it matter which way I insert the shuko plug into this adapter? (i.e. is it ok if the shuko goes in upside down?)

Asked by: wantoknow
No either way is fine. Further info on the "Shuko" socket/plug specification can be found here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schuko

Will this work on an item with 220 volts 50hz 

Asked by: Juliem
As long as that device is fitted with a "Shucko" plug then it will be fine.

Are there any adaptors available which mate with the French/Belgian round plugs, which have a female connector for the Earth pin? Round (earthed or unearthed) plugs do not fit into Schuko sockets but they will fit the flush sockets typically found in
Asked by: Brian
These are the only types available from Maplin the only alternative is a 2 pin shaver type adapter order code HL64U
