Title: Nato plug
Post by: cinan on October 28, 2013, 08:46:00 PM
Does anyone know where to get a male nato trailer plug from ?  I want to make an adpator to connect the plug at the rear of the Perentie to a civilian round plug.

There is a new one on Ebay UK at the moment.  Its UK spec with a plastic cover instead of the metal spring loaded cap, but will work the same.

You should be able to scrounge one somebody wrecking a S2/S2a or S2 vehicle as they are held on by 4 bolts on left rear chassis x-member just remove and walla one male plug  ;D

I think he is talking about the plug with the 12 male pins from the trailer.  Not the socket with the 12 corresponding female sockets on the vehicle.

I've got one spare.
If you're prepared to pay what I paid on ebay, it's all yours.

Or this combination:

It's worth asking a question to the seller. There is a whole batch of these plugs getting around with female sockets in the plug. Looking closely a the pic, the bag of pins don't look like the male pins.

I picked one up from the guys 303gunner has linked (brittish 4wd imports) & it did come with all female pins, not a big deal as you can solder up the suppled female plugs & make a male adaptor using heavy gauge wire.
Best to give them a call to check though if you need the male plugs.
 Also keep in mind that all the pins need to be soldered & dismantling a second hand plug can be quite hard as the centre plug is a very tight fit.
