Nato plug
« 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.

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.

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.
