Plugs - Other 13A Fused 'ring main'

These plugs and socket are alternatives to the BS1363 fused plug. They are all designed to be installed on a 30A ring circuit, and like the BS1363 type all contain a fuse, have three pins, and are rated to 13A maximum.

None of these are in use any more - ultimately the BS1363 flat pin model was used everywhere, at the expense of these ones.

At the time, the circuit designed to be used with these was called a 'ring main'. The correct name today is ring final circuit, however ring main is still used by many people.
