This Safety RCD Adapter UK Power Plug was made by Masterplug for Homebase. It is new, unused and in Homebase packaging.
The Safety RCD Adapter Plug simply plugs into the mains, and you wire your electrical appliance into it. If there is a fault or a short in the tool you are using, the unit cuts the power very quickly, reducing the risk of electrocution.
The Homebase Safety RCD adapter continuously monitors the power supply to an electrical appliance and cuts off the power within 40 milliseconds if an earth current fault is detected. This is fast enough to prevent a fatal electric shock. This plug is an ideal way to protect yourself when using portable electrical tools such as lawnmowers and drills.
Unlike some similar adapters, this RCD plug adapter is small enough so that it will only use one socket in a two socket faceplate.
Electrical appliances can become dangerous if the wiring becomes loose, their power cords become damaged or if they get wet. Not only power tools and lawnmowers can cause electrocution–it is also possible if fingers, wet hair or other conductive bodies enter the appliance. In all these cases a Safety RCD Adapter is a must. RCD adaptors are the simplest way of power protection for in and around the home. Ideally, you would use an RCD adapter with any electrical appliance. Please note, these products are suitable for pond pumps and other pond equipment as this adapter replaces the original plug.
This adapter conforms to all relevant British Standards.
