Default Re: Another unusual plug and some other questions

Hello, today my grandmother found a load of old plugs, among them were these three odd ones. The first two are Crabtree 5A round pin plugs but with notches on the earth pins. They are basically the same with the same numbers, but one plug has one notch the other two. I assume they are there as part of an interlocking arrangement?

The third item is a round pin to bayonet adaptor, made by GEC. The movable pins allow the adaptor to be plugged into a 2, 5 or 15A socket. The outlet side has a sprung plate which sort of prevents accidental contact with the pins.

There was also a 5A MK plug which is identical to the current production MK plugs (except this one is brown).
