Default Re: Mains plug restoration

The information on sleeved plugs is interesting. I've never seen it written down (I'm not directly involved with BS1363) but it seems there is no requirement to automatically replace a customer plug if it is unsleeved (unless it is cracked or broken of course) so returning the item to the same customer is OK. It's only if the item is resold or if the customer passes it on to someone else that the plug needs to be changed.

When I was doing general servicing and an item came in with an unsleeved plug, I was advised to remove it, fit a sleeved plug and return the old plug to the customer....if they refitted it....fine but when it left our workshop it had a sleeved plug so the onus was on the customer, not us.

Standards can be very confusing!
